After recalling the most classical multiple flow direction algorithms (MFD), we establish their equivalence with a well chosen discretization of Manning–Strickler models for water flow. From this analogy, we derive a new MFD algorithm that remains valid on general, possibly non conforming meshes. We also derive a convergence theory for MFD algorithms based on the Manning–Strickler models. Numerical experiments illustrate the good behavior of the method even on distorted meshes.
