In hydraulic engineering free surface water flows are commonly described by means of the shallow water equations (also called the Saint-Venant equations) and closely related models. Despite their simplicity, this description is valid in many applications in hydraulics and as such has a long tradition of providing a scientific basis for engineering practice. To this end, shallow water equations arise in modelling water flows in rivers, canals, lakes, reservoirs, coastal and urban areas and many other situations in which the water depth is much smaller than the horizontal length scale of motion. As such, shallow water and closely related equations are widely used in oceanography and atmospheric sciences to model, among others, hazardous phenomena as hurricanes/typhoons and tsunamis.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the latest advanses in hydraulic modeling based on the use of shallow water and related models as well as their novel application in practical engineering. Original contributions in the following areas, though not exclusively, will be considered for publication: new conseptual models and applications, flood inundation and routing, sedimend transport and morphodynamic modelling, pollutant transport in water, irrigation and drainage modeling, numerical simulation in hydraulics, novel numerical methods for the shallow water equations and extended models, case studies, and high-performance computing.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
