SWMM 5 Clocktime RTC Rules for Pumps, Weirs and Orifices


Subject:  SWMM 5 Clocktime RTC Rules for PumpsWeirs and Orifices

 

You can use the Control or RTC rules in SWMM 5 to adjust the settings of the weirspumps and orifices based on the clock time each day of your simulation.  Here is an example that will adjust orifice height every ½ hour for 7 orifices at one time using two sets of rules.

 

RULE R1a 

; Half hour setting

IF SIMULATION CLOCKTIME = 0:30:00 

OR SIMULATION CLOCKTIME = 1:30:00
