Experimental dataset on sediment depths in studying the influences of dry- and wet-bed downstream conditions on multiphase dam break flood wave while 0 to 25% of the dam reservoir is occupied by sedimentation
Experimental data collection In this file, all sediment depth data associated with 8 different dam break scenarios were extracted from high-quality experimental video images. The dataset are collected, classified and presented a total of 8 distinct tables in 2 categories based on initial upstream sediment depth; 3 cm and 7.5 cm. Tables 1-4, present the sediment depth data at 20 different locations along the flume and 15 snap times after the dam break, while the initial upstream sediment depth is 3 cm (10% of the reservoir height). Dry- and wet-bed initial downstream condition with 2 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm standing water depth are detailed in Table 1-4, respectively. Table 5-8 provide the sediment depth data at all abovementioned sections and snap times while the initial upstream sediment depth is 7.5 cm (25% of the reservoir height), and dry- or wet-bed downstream with 2 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm standing water depth were considered as initial downstream conditions, respectively.
