Large-scale floods are one of the major events that impact the national economy and people's livelihood every year during the flood season. Predicting the factors of flood evolution is a worldwide problem. We use the two-dimensional Saint-Venant equations as an example and for high-performance computing in modelling the flood behavior. Discretization of the two-dimensional Saint-Venant equations with initial and boundary conditions with the finite difference method in the explicit leapfrog

On this basis, we applied communication/calculation overlapping and the local memory acceleration to optimize the performance. Finally, various performance tests of the parallel scheme are carried out from different perspectives. We have found this method is efficient and recommend this approach be used in solving systems of partial differential equations similar to the Saint-Venant equations.
