Experimental videos: Herein, 27 distinct video files have been presented which related to dam break multiphase flood shock wave experiments which performed in the Shiraz University, Civil and Environmental Engineering Department’s Hydraulic Lab (Shiraz, Iran). The upstream reservoir was initially filled by clear water (no sediment) while different initial downstream conditions have been considered including dry-bed downstream and wet-bed downstream with different levels of standing water; 2 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm. Considering three cameras which covered length of the flume, 4 different dam break scenarios and 3 repetitions conducted for each test, a total of 27 videos collected which presented in this document. The additional explanations related to video files can be seen in “Explanation table of videos” file which attached to this document in Microsoft Word (DOCX/DOC) format.
