Abstract. The article reviews separate results of experimental studies of flow parameters during a dam break. The experiments showed the appearance of secondary waves in the tail of the levelfall wave with partial instantaneous destruction of the dam and the effect of the bottom slope on the depths of the current in the upper pool.
Key words: dam break, instantaneous destruction, upper pool, levelfall wave.
