Abstract [en]

Mosul dam is the biggest hydraulic structure in Iraq located on the River Tigris 50 Km north of Mosul city. Its storage capacity is 11.1 x 109 m3 and it had been in operation since 1986.A physical model representing the most northern part of Mosul dam reservoir was used to conduct the experiments. The construction of the model was based on field survey conducted in 2010. Twenty-four experiments were executed using four different discharges (500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 m3/s respectively). At each individual discharge six operations were assumed where the reservoirs water level was 305,307,309,310, 312, 315 MSL respectively. In all the experiments conducted, bedload transport rate was decreasing when the water level within the reservoir was increasing. It was also evident the bedload transport rate dramatically decreased at level 310 onward. This is due to the fact that at this level the effect of backwater was noticeable on the river cross section
