Peaking flow in InfoSewer Steady State applied as Total Flow in an EPS Simulation

Image
One of the advantages of the three Run options in InfoSewer (Bullet 1 in the image) which are Steady Sate, Design and Extended Period or EPS Modeling is that you can use Peaking Flow Factors for the Steady State Loading Manholes (Bullet 2 in the image).  Unfortunately, you cannot use Peaking Factors for EPS simulations which is often a modeling issue.  However, you can copy the Total Flow for each node in the Steady State Output Report and use this Total Flow as an EPS "other" loading (Bullet 3 in the image).  In an EPS Simulation you can use the Advanced Force Main Modeling option and automatically have flow splits for Force Mains and model more complicated Force Main configurations.  If you just simulate the EPS for one hour then you have a quasi steady state simulation with Total Flow (Unpeakable + Peakable) and the Advanced Force Main Solution. A list of steps you need to take to use the Peak Flow from a Steady State Run in an EPS Simulation include 1.       Use Peaking Fa…

How to make a smaller model out of your larger InfoSWMM or H2OMap SWMM network: Make a domain and then an active facility from the domain for your larger networkExport the Active Newtork in the current scenario to SWMM 5Import the smaller model from SWMM 5 into a different InfoSWMM modelYou now have a smaller model in InfoSWMM or H2OMap SWMM.

d/D, q/Q for a Link in SWMM 5, InfoSWMM and H2oMap SWMM

d/D, q/Q for a Link in SWMM 5, InfoSWMM and H2oMap SWMM

How do we look at the various measures of "fullness" in a pipe of link in SWMM 5?  Here we look at some graphs from InfoSWMM.

d/D is the pipe depth over the full depth of the link
q/Q is the current link flow over Qfull for the link (Q full is the full flow of a link based on Manning's equation)  This Qfull is based on the bed slope of the link.   You can have a q/Q or q/Qfull greater than 1 if the water surface slope is greater than the bed slope of a link.  This is especially true for flat links where SWMM 5 has a minimum slope of 0.001

The image shown below shoes that at the peak flow in the links is greater than 1 even though the pipe is not full (d/D less than 1) for this model of flat slopes.  Qfull is a comparison metric and not the result of the simulation.
