The accurate prediction of sediment erosion after dam removal is critical to quantifying the impact of dam removal on the reservoir and downstream environment. A variety of methods can be used to estimate this impact, and one of the most common is to use a one-dimensional mobile bed sediment transport model. I describe a one-dimensional sediment transport model (SRH-1D) and use it to simulate a laboratory experiment of incision through a reservoir delta deposit. The model allows the user to specify the erosion width through the deposit as a function of the flow rate. The model is shown to...
