### Nonclassical shallow water flows

Abstract:

This paper deals with violent discontinuities in shallow water flows with large Froude number $F$. On a horizontal base, the paradigm problem is that of the impact of two fluid layers in situations where the flow can be modelled as two smooth regions joined by a singularity in the flow field. Within the framework of shallow water theory we show that, over a certain timescale, this discontinuity may be described by a delta-shock, which is a weak solution of the underlying conservation laws i...
