Free-surface water flows can be seen in many real life flow situations such as river and lake hydrodynamics, surface irrigation,
tides, dam break flows, as well as estuarine and coastal circulation. Many of these flows involve complex flow behaviours,
irregular flow domains, rapid variation of bottom topography and moving boundaries in which wetting and drying of variable
topography occurs. The prediction of flooding due to a storm surge, dam break, or overtopped levee is crucial for disaster
management. Wave run-up estimates are needed for beach and coastal structure design. Descriptions of inundation, in both
estuarine tidal flats and riverine flood plains, are keys to predicting the transport of suspended and dissolved substances.
Satisfactory numerical simulations of these processes are very challenging tasks. In this seminar the author shall present
two numerical models to study free-surface water flows. The first numerical model is Unstructured Finite-Volume Methods
(UFVM). This method not only ensure mass conservation, an important property in computing fluid flows, but also the
best possible fitting of computing meshes into the studied domain boundaries. Author will discuss the development of the
model and its numerical validation and finally its application to study Malpasset Dam break (France, 1959) event. The second
numerical model is Navier-Stokes Multi Phase Model (NSMP). This is a two-phase sediment transport model. Author will
discuss the development of the model and its application to study the dynamics of Turbidity Maximum (TM), in the Gironde
