Dam-break flows can cause major destructions in case settlements located atthe downstream area. Since many people live in the settlements, investigations regarding the dam-break flow have great importance.Dam break flow characteristics can become variousbased on different downstream conditions. In this study, an investigation was made relating tothe dam break flow in a channel with symmetrical triangular-shaped bottom obstacle using Finite Element Method (FEM) formulation. Numerical results of the present study were compared with experimental results. It was concluded that numerical and experimental results are in good agreement.
