Momentum conservation

For simulation of breaking waves, hydraulic jumps and bores, momentum must be conserved. Preference should then be given to a numerical method that conserves momentum, which ensures that the wave properties under breaking waves are modelled correctly. See command DISCRET UPW MOM.
