Sulejow Reservoir situated in central Poland in the middle
reach of the Pilica River is a typical lowland, low volume wa-
ter body with major fluctuations of water level.

Abstract Abstract Abstract
3D hydrodynamic model of the Sulejow Reservoir based on the real data was developed, verified and tested. CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) calculations of the flow in the
reservoir were performed for monthly hydrodynamic and meteorological conditions using the ANSYS Fluent 14.0 software. A hexahedral mesh with over 16 million elements and
k- SST turbulence model was applied for single-phase simulations in steady-state conditions to determine mean hydrodynamic parameters in every month of the reference year.
CFD model of the lake was validated on the basis of flow velocity measurements.
3D geometry was constructed by using GAMBIT 2.2.30
software. The domain surface was discretized using hexahedral
(structural) mesh with approx. 16 700 000 elements.

Flow field in the Sulejow Resvoir is transient in nature, containing turbu-
lent structures and swirl flows. (Fig. 5) Three regions of swirling flow
were developed. One around the islands (place of the constrictions), one
below the Pilica inlet due to the small depth (0,3 m) and higher velocity
(12,83 m
/s - June; 25,65 m
/s - December) and one below the outlet of
the reservoir.

Boundary conditions applied for the domain were: two inlets (Pilica
and Luciaza rivers), one outlet (dam).
At the water table the moving wall function was used, which enables si-
mulations under wind conditions.
Calculation were provided under steady-state conditions, for single
phase using ANSYS FLUENT software.
