Types of Nodes and Links in SWMM 5


Subject:  Types of Nodes and Links in SWMM 5

The main objects in a SWMM 5 drainage network are the nodes and links. Nodes are Junctions,  Storages,  Dividers and  Outfalls.  Links are Conduits, Pumps, Orifices, Weirs and Outlets.  There is one type of junction but 5 types of Oufalls, 3 types of Storages and 4 types of Dividers. The dividers can be used in the dynamic wave solution of SWMM 5 but only divide the flow in the kinematic wave solution.
