Abstract: Growing advances in remote sensing technologies together with the widespread availability of Digital terrain models (DTM) have intensified the research into two-dimensional (2D) models. Supported by detailed DTM, 2D models can become very accurate tools yet not without an added cost on the computational effort. Floodplain inundation is characterised by a slow varying phenomenon which can last hours, days or even weeks. In this paper we aim to develop a specific parallel diffusive wave model with variable time step suitable for flood inundation. Taking advantage of up to 12 processors, speed-up times ranging from 1.7 to 5.2 and 1.2 to 1.7 are achieved with the Matlab parallel computing toolbox and Fortran OpenMP Application Programming, respectively. The variable time method and the process devised to represent Wet–Dry fronts kept the solution stable and preserved absolute mass conservation. P-DWave performed well against known analytical solutions and dynamic and diffusive models in a total of seven tests.
