When is Warning 02 Used in the SWMM 5 Engine?

When is Warning 02 Used in the SWMM 5 Engine?
1. If the crown elevation of the highest connecting link is greater than the maximum depth of the node, then 2. The maximum depth of the node is increased to the crown elevation of highest connecting link 3. This is an  internal engine change and is reflected in the Output HGL 4. For example, a 4 foot pipe connected to a node with a maximum depth of 2 feet will be increased to 4 feet 5. The output text file will say what the maximum depth is or 4 feet in this case The Meaning of Warning 02

How to Use Trace Upstream, Domain Manager and Facility Manager in InfoSewer to Find the CE

Image
InfoSewer does not have table of node continuity errors only an overall continuity error balance.  If you have a continuity error then you can use the process of divide and conquer to find the location of the continuity error.  Start at the Outlets and using the Trace Upstream command, Domain Manager and Facility Manager take out whole sections of the network until you isolate the section of the network with the continuity error  (Figure 1 and Figure 2). Figure 1. The Mass Balance Calculation in InfoSewer/H2OMap Sewer. Figure 2.  Control the Continuity Error with the Run Control Options in Run Manager. Here are the steps you can take: Step 1.   Use Trace Upstream Network to find the and place in a Domain the Upstream Network (Figure 3). Step 2.   Once the upstream domain is created use the Domain Manager to add in any extra links without nodes (Figure 4) Step 3.   Make the Domain Inactive using Facility Manger (Figure 5) Step 4.    Run the network and check the overall continuity error (Figu…

Vertical Roughness Differentiation in InfoSWMM for a Link

Image
The Vertical Roughness Threshold allows the user of InfoSWMM or H2OMap SWMM to have a simple differentiation of roughness in a link. The Threshold depth which is entered as a fraction of the total link depth allows the simulation of lower or higher roughness at the bottom of the link compared to the top of the link. The lower or higher roughness is entered as the Vertical Roughness value in the InfoSWMM Attribute Table of DB Table for the link hydraulic data.
1. The Vertical Roughness Threshold is a fraction and the Threshold depth calculated from this fraction will be the Vertical Roughness Threshold Fraction * Maximum depth. If the Maximum depth is 3 meters and the Vertical Roughness Threshold is 0.5 then the dividing depth is 1.5 meter (Figure 1 and Figure 2). 2. If the depth in the link is higher than the Threshold depth it will use the link manning roughness n value. If the depth is in the link during the simulation is less than the Threshold depth it will use the Vertical Roughn…

Water is good; it benefits all things and does not compete with them.(Lao-tzu)

Image
I saw this website on LinkedIn and was interested in the use of Chinese and Japanese characters for water.    http://www.flood-risk-bolivia.eu.pn/index.html “The present research is supported by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS). The project began its research activities on November 2014. The logo selected is quite simple but meaningful. It consists on the map of Bolivia and inside the map it is the kanji for the word Shuǐ (Chinese) or Mizu (Japanese) that means water. The kanji looks like a drop water. It was decided to use the symbol of water, as everything relates somehow to water. Water is the most vital element for life, but it can also become the most destructive force.”
"Water is good; it benefits all things and does not compete with them." (Lao-tzu)
