## Abstract

We present exact solutions for suspended sediment transport under one-dimensional dam-break flow, both over a dry bed and into a small depth of tail water. We explicitly calculate the suspended sediment concentration, including erosion and deposition, and investigate the effect of varying the erosional and depositional models employed. These solutions order insight into sediment transport processes under floods or sheet flow events, and we also discuss their application as test-bed solutions for the validation of numerical models.
