A transient, one-dimensional model for dynamic flood routing of mud flows is presented. The governing equations of mass and momentum conservation incorporate laminar flow resistance effects and utilize a power law expression to represent the cross-sectional geometry of the channel. The equations are solved by the method of characteristics on fixed time lines and program execution is performed on a micro-computer. Numerical results are compared with published experimental data for a laminar flow, dambreak problem of a viscous oil. Author
