What are typical Reynolds Numbers in SWMM5 or InfoSWMM

The Reynolds Number is not shown in SWMM 5 of  InfoSWMM but can easily be added to the SWMM 5 code as shown in Figure 3.  The equation for the Reynolds Number isSNAGHTMLb057c4aNormally, as shown is Figure 1 the Reynolds number is is very high and is indicative of very turbulent flow based on typical flows, velocities and pipe diameters/hydraulic radius's in SWMM 5 (Figure 2).
