ABSTRACT. River regulating structures are used in some parts to prevent slope and bed erosion. The main project criterion used for all structures is flow rate or indirect speed. Submerged vane structures are a new alternative method to conventional methods in river regulating structures. In this presented study, the river arrangement study made with submerged vane structures is modeled in 3D. Simulations of the measured flow velocities in the channel, where submerged vane experiments were performed before, were compared with the results of the submerged vane experiment by using the 3-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method. In the present CFD model, nonlinear and continuity, turbulence model equations are applied. For the turbulence viscosity, k-ε turbulence model is used. The results of the present model are compared with the previous experimental work.
