This data is a test video for the injection of non-Newtonian grout in a regular water-saturated channel network. The test system consists of two parallel plates of plexiglass with the size of 1.2 × 1 × 0.015 m. The two sides along the length of the plates were sealed and the remaining two sides along the width of the plates were fixed by given water heads. One hundred and twenty rectangular plexiglass plates were homogeneously placed between the two plates to construct the regular channel network. The channel aperture is 1 mm and the width of the channels is 5mm. At the center of the top plate, a circular hole was drilled for injecting a non-Newtonian fluid. This test video contains the entire dataset of the propagation time and positions. More details can be found in [Håkansson U. 1987 Modellförsök – Icke-Newtonsk strömning i endimensionella kanaler.
