We introduce and analyse the so-called Reference Solution IMplicit-EXplicit scheme as a flux-splitting method for singularly-perturbed systems of balance laws. RS-IMEX scheme’s bottom-line is to use the Taylor expansion of the flux function and the source term around a reference solution (typically the asymptotic limit or an equilibrium solution) to decompose the flux and the source into stiff and non-stiff parts so that the resulting IMEX scheme is Asymptotic Preserving (AP) w.r.t. the singular parameter tending to zero. We prove the asymptotic consistency, asymptotic stability, solvability and well-balancing of the scheme for the case of the one-dimensional shallow water equations when the singular parameter is the Froude number. We will also study several test cases to illustrate the quality of the computed solutions and to confirm the analysis.
