Abstract: The paper is dedicated to study a numerical model simulating dam-break based on two dimensional nonlinear shallow water equations (2D-NSWE). Finite Volume Method-Godunov type is applied to discretize this equation. Roe scheme is utilized to approximate Riemann problem, meanwhile method of flux difference splitting is implemented to construct numerical solvers of SWE. Besides, the semi implicit scheme is also invoked to solve friction term in case of high roughness coefficient. The proposed model is verified through a comparison between computed results and empirical data of two reference tests. A dam break flow over floodable area with different roughness coefficients is also researched. A total collapsed dam scenario of an arch dam-Nam Chien in Vietnam is simulated by the proposed model. Several hydraulic characteristics such as flood extent, arrival time and time histories of water depth at different gauges are estimated with different grid sizes.
