This repository contains data used in “Analysis of mechanical-hydraulic deposition control measures”.

The data stem from laboratory experiments with the setup described in my PhD thesis (Schwindt 2017). Data processing was done with *Python* (see pydroscape) and *Matlab* / *Octave* codes.

## Codes

Signal processing was done with *Python* and the pydroscape) package. The data analyses where made with *Matlab* / *Octave* (`.m`

) codes, where codes starting with an `f[...].m`

mark files containing functions. All other `.m`

files are algorithms that use these functions. Please note that all codes were originally written in *Matlab* and processing them with *Octave* may require adding `pkg load io`

after the `clear all; close all;`

statements in the codes.

## Data structure and codes

The ** RawData/** folder contains the raw data from the ultrasonic probe loggers, pump discharge logger, flow velocity (where applicable), sediment supply/outflow loggers, and constriction geometry. The

`RawData/ExperimentOverview.xlsx`

workbook contains overview tables of the conducted experiments.The ** ProcessedData/** folder contains data that where extracted from the

`RawData/`

folder. *Matlab*/

*Octave*(

`.m`

) codes in that folder were used for extracting / converting the raw data.The ** ProcessedData/000_data_summary/** folder contains

*Matlab*/

*Octave*(

`.m`

) codes that created workbooks documenting spillway overflow and orifice clogging / flushing with both control mechanisms (hydraulic and mechanic, **summary files are highlighted**):

`20161029_no-overflow_5_5_percent.xlsx`

contains experiment series that document sediment passage ;&Phi with varying discharge through the orifice of a (theoretically) infinitely high barrier (bottom slope = 5.5\%, hydraulic control only).`20161029_unsteady.xlsx`

contains the raw data of sediment passage ;&Phi with varying discharge through the orifice of a (theoretically) infinitely high barrier (bottom slopes of 3.5\% and 5.5\%, hydraulic control only).contains experiment series that document sediment passage ;&Phi with varying discharge through the orifice of an overflown barrier with spillway (bottom slope = 5.5\%, hydraulic control only).`20161123_overflown-spillway_5_5_percent.xlsx`

`20161123_unsteady_spillway.xlsx`

*Q*through mechanical and hydraulic controls at /in the overflown barrier._{bo}`20161208_summary_blockage_comb.xlsx`

documents finding the optimum bottom clearance for combined hydraulic-mechanical controls.`20161211_summary_blockage_f.xlsx`

documents finding the optimum bottom clearance of mechanical control.documents the sediment passage with variable sediment supply. This is not a summary table though, but highlighted here because it contains more information than explored in the paper. These information may be valuable for other studies.`blockage_probability.xlsx`

`Exp_NNNNN_[...].xlsx`

are the experimental summary files resulting from the`RawData/`

The ** ProcessedData/001_regression_analysis/** folder contains workbooks and

*Matlab*/

*Octave*(

`.m`

) codes for data regression (curves) shown in figures and tables. The workbooks explore multiple regression pairs beyond the ones shown in the paper.The ** ProcessedData/002_plots/** folder contains

*Matlab*/

*Octave*(

`.m`

) codes for producing the plots (figures) for the paper.
