Experimental videos: Herein, 27 distinct video files have been presented which related to dam break multiphase flood shock wave experiments, performed in the Shiraz University, Civil and Environmental Engineering Department’s Hydraulic Lab (Shiraz, Iran). The initial upstream sediment depth was 24 cm which makes the upstream reservoir 80% silted-up with respect to the total 30 cm height of the reservoir. Different initial downstream conditions have also 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.
