This work deals with the numerical simulation of flood waves propagation. This phenomena can be described by the non conservative form of shallow water or St-Venant equations, in water velocity-depht formulation (u,H). The numerical approximation of the model is based on the Characteristics method for the time discretization. The obtained steady system is of Quasi-Stokes type, and it is resolved by a preconditioned Uzawa conjugated gradient algorithm, combined to P1/P1 finite element for the spatial approximation. Some numerical results describing subcritical flow on various fluid domains are given.
