Summary

In this paper weakly-reflective boundary conditions are presented for the one- and two-dimensional shallow water equations. After a short discussion on the necessity of this type of boundary conditions the mathematical formulation of the problem is given together with the essential aspects of the derivation. The numerical implementation of these conditions in finite element and finite difference codes is considered and results are given for some applications.
