Use and validation of three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics in the design of weirs and spillways

Description:This paper presents a CFD study for the upgrade of an existing reservoir weir and spillway with comparison with experimental results. Weir discharge coefficient and wave wall height are assessed and compared with the experiment, with good agreement between the two techniques being observed. An extensive set of results are presented and discussed, and recommendations are made for future best practice in the use of CFD for this problem.
