🔰The Two-Pass InfoSewer Solution method refines the estimation of flow within sewer networks by employing a dual-stage analysis. Initially, in the first pass, the system calculates the loads at each manhole and subsequently deduces the flow in the connecting links. This initial flow estimation is utilized to determine the preliminary depth-to-diameter ratio (d/D), the values of which you are presently mapping.
🔰Subsequently, the second pass of the solution process takes place. This stage is critical as it accounts for complex hydraulic phenomena, including backwater effects, surcharge conditions, and pressurized flow. It is during this phase that the depth-to-diameter ratio is adjusted, often resulting in an increased d/D value compared to the initial pass. This adjusted d/D is depicted in the Hydraulic Grade Line (HGL) plot.
🔰Utilizing the adjusted d/D from the second pass provides a more accurate indication of pipeline capacity and performance, particularly identifying pipes operating at or above 75% fullness. This metric is essential for effective sewer system management, offering a clearer insight into the potential for overflow and the need for infrastructural intervention.
