Average Number of Node Iterations in SWMM 5 Dynamic Wave Solution

Subject:  SWMM 5 will iterate for the new node depth at each time for a minimum of 2 iterations to a maximum of 8 iterations based on the Node Continuity equation.  If you plot the average number of iterations over time then typically the number of iterations go up as the Inflow increases.  The nodes with the most iterations changes over time as the peak flow moves through the network as shown in this plan view.  The iterations used during the simulation is a function of the node stop tolerance which has a default value of 0.005 feet in SWMM 5.
