ABSTRACT. Numerical Analysis of the Flow Over the Dam Spillway. The determination of hydraulic parameters is very important in the design of the dam spillway structure. Hydraulic parameters are obtained by theoretical and empirical approaches according to the design flow discharge. In general, before the application project, tests are made on the hydraulic model and the design is given its final shape. Advanced numerical modeling techniques can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to experimental studies. This study investigated hydraulic parameters in three dimensions under design flow in a dam spillway using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). In the numerical model, the VOF method, which can solve two-phase flows, and the standard k-e turbulence model are used. Obtained results were compared with experimental results. It was determined that the experimental and numerical model results were quite compatible with each other.
