Flood caused by a dam-breaking flow may be catastrophic for the downstream area due to the sudden discharge of large volumes of water. Besides the complex flow of the propagating dam-break wave, the presence of structures such as bridges and buildings yield free surfaces which can be accurately reproduced by means of three-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software. The prediction of the dam-break flow main features in the presence of obstacles has a crucial role in decreasing the damage. In this study, small-scale laboratory experiments were conducted to examine the problem with a single obstacle. Five ultrasonic sensors were used as measurement devices. Measurements were compared with the numerical results obtained with the FLOW-3D software, solving RANS equations with the k- turbulence closure model. A good agreement was observed.
