Dambreak flows in a smooth, rectangular channel are considered. Even with the same initial water head setting, the water level and flow lquber variations of the dam-break wave propagating downstream on the wet bed show noteworthy differences in flow characteristics compared to the initial dry bed, caused by the interactions between the upstream and downstream water.

Dambreak waves in a smooth rectangular and horizontal channel are described. Return articles published in.

nager Experiments to dambreak wave: Also, the drying front is computed and the effect of viscosity is analyzed. In this study, a series of dam-break experiments was carried out to investigate the influence of the initial downstream water depth, laubsr head settings, and upstream reservoir length on the dam-break wave movement.


November 28, Published: The non-dimensional average front velocity of the wet-bed condition, which mainly depends on the initial water head setting, is smaller than that of the dry-bed case.

In addition, the maximum water level and flow velocity at the downstream location are mainly controlled by the initial water head setting, while the duration of the large values is influenced by the reservoir length. Considering the requirements for hagee data measurement with high temporal resolution, the synchronization of different instruments was realized based on high-speed camera recording.

Based on a literature review, the conditions required for Froude similarity are first derived. In all experiments, the abrupt rupture on an absolutely dry tailwater channel was modelled.

The system can’t perform the operation now. The instantaneous water level and flow velocity were measured at two specified downstream locations.

The positive and negative wave haher are determined based on the characteristic equations.

Then, the positive and negative wave fronts are analytically determined, based on the characteristic equations. Hydrodynamic formulae proposed by Lauber and Hager [1] are not applicable for the wet-bed condition, although their solution of wave profiles for the initial dry-bed condition performs well at the location farther from the gate.
