Complementary spillway of Salamonde dam. Physical and 3D numerical modeling Miguel R. Silva; António N. PinheiroJune 13, 2013 Introduction Throughout the design and planning for hydraulic structures as, engineers and researchers are increasingly integrating computational fluid dynamics () into the process. Throughout the design and planning for hydraulic structures as spillways, engineers and researchers are increasingly integrating computational fluid dynamics (CFD) into the process. Velocity magnitude in a labyrinth weir (Lan, 2010) Despite reports of success in the past, there is still no comprehensive assessment that assigns ability to CFD models to simulate a wide range of different spillways configurations. In this study, the applicability of CFD model (FLOW-3D) to simulate the flow into a geometry complex spillway was reviewed. 1

Salamonde Dam (from INAG and CNPGB) Present spillway in Salamonde Dam (from origens.pt) After safety analysis from (EDP, 2006), it was concluded that it would be necessary an additional discharge structure - complementary spillway for Salamonde dam (under construction), which is the case study in this presentation. 2

PinheiroJune 13, 2013 Water level fluctuations against the slopes of the valley: One of the major concern of engineers during the design of spillways with free jet dissipation is the increase of the level in the river hills. FLOW-3D could help to decide the jet impinging region in the river bed in order to minimize erosion and water level fluctuations against the slopes of the valley. For Salamonde, a 12 m elevation above the maximum river level was expected. Results for Design Discharge 29

Complementary spillway of Salamonde dam. Physical and 3D numerical modeling Miguel R. Silva; António N. PinheiroJune 13, A sensitive analysis for some main FLOW-3D configurations is quite important before starting to predict flow characteristics: 1.2 nd order momentum advection model with monotonicity preserving was a good choice for better accuracy without much more computational time 2.Split Lagragian VOF didnt appear to be useful in this kind of extreme velocity flow conditions 3.TLEN parameter has a huge importance in simulation stability and duration 4.Finer cell size has higher importance if there are some geometric details such as radial gates 2.In general, FLOW-3D accurately represents the flow along the spillway with rather complex geometry 3.FLOW-3D could be very useful for structural design of hydraulic structures. Pressure diagrams and velocity profiles could be rendered with a post-processing software as EnSight and could be helpful in that design phase. Conclusions 30
