SELECTING THE RIGHT MODEL TO ANALYZE COLLECTION SYSTEM FLOWS AND HYDRAULICS
Abstract:There are a wide variety of public domain and commercial sewer system models available today. It can be challenging to select a model that meets the goals of a specific project due to the myriad of features now available in most software packages. The purpose of this paper is to provide a guide for selecting a model to analyze flows and hydraulics within a collection system network. A variety of core model features are detailed including dry and wet weather flow estimation, and hydraulics. The computational algorithms that are used in many models, such as the Saint-Venant equations, are also summarized. Other features are discussed that allow for the efficient management of data and the effective display of results. Various model application levels including gross planning, detailed planning, and design are also addressed.
