Dam-break on an idealised hill side: Preliminary results of a physical model
Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering (DIATI), Politecnico di Torino, Corso Duca degli Abruzzi 24, 10129 Torino, Italy
The aim of this work is to study the propagation of dam-break waves along a hillslope by mean of a physical model (basically i.e. a 3 x 4 m2 plane set downstream of a reservoir) build up in the Hydraulic Laboratory of the Politecnico di Torino. We want to recreate the water surface, to assess the shape of the flooded area and the arrival time of the wave front. The measurement facility is a high resolution CMOS camera. We measure the water height by linking the intensity of the pixels in the acquired images to the real water depth. Preliminary quantitative results are given for the 0°downstream-slope scenario and qualitative results are presented for the case of downstream inclined plane.
