A characteristic-based semi-Lagrangian (CSL) method is developed for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. In the CSL method, the governing equations are first transformed into a system of equations in characteristic form and then the Lagrangian form of the transformed equations is solved along the characteristic directions. By definition of hyperbolicity, such a transformation always exists. The CSL method is first illustrated by applying it to the one-dimensional (1-D) shallow water… CONTINUE READING
