On the rotational invariance and hyperbolicity of shallow water moment equations in two dimensions

by   Matthew Bauerle, et al.

In this paper, we investigate the two-dimensional extension of a recently introduced set of shallow water models based on a regularized moment expansion of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations <cit.>. We show the rotational invariance of the proposed moment models with two different approaches. The first proof involves the split of the coefficient matrix into the conservative and non-conservative parts and prove the rotational invariance for each part, while the second one relies on the special block structure of the coefficient matrices. With the aid of rotational invariance, the analysis of the hyperbolicity for the moment model in 2D is reduced to the real diagonalizability of the coefficient matrix in 1D. Then we prove the real diagonalizability by deriving the analytical form of the characteristic polynomial. Furthermore, we extend the model to include a more general class of closure relations than the original model and establish that this set of general closure relations retain both rotational invariance and hyperbolicity.
