RDII Initial Abstraction in SWMM 5

Subject:  RDII Initial Abstraction in SWMM 5

The initial abstraction in each of the three components of RDII in SWMM 5 are updated at each time step.  The initialabstraction (ia) is:

ia = iaMax - iaUsed

based on the maximum amount of ia, the ia used (iaUsed), the recovery rate (iaRecov) and the month and class of RDII.  You can enter a value for iaMax, iaInit and iaRecov for each month.


The iaUsed at the beginning of the simulation is set equal to iaInit


and if there is no rainfall
