One of the most mechanisms of sediment transport within reservoirs is turbidity current. In this paper variations of the inlet densimetric Froude number and inlet Reynolds number on the head velocity of turbidity currents have been studied experimentally. Head velocity was measured using a video camera. The results of the experiments show that by increasing inlet Reynolds number the head velocity increases whereas by increasing inlet densimetric Froude number the head velocity decreases
