## Mass Balance for Water Quality in SWMM 5

Subject:   Mass Balance for Water Quality in SWMM 5

The rainfall concentration is listed in the wet deposition row of the Runoff Quality Continuity Table, the washoff such as EMC washoff is listed in the Surface Runoff row.  If you are simulating groundwater quality then it is listed as a Read the rest

## Mass and Concentration Water Quality Loadings in SWMM 5

Subject:   Mass and Concentration Water Quality Loadings in SWMM 5

If you have a time series of flow and water quality at a node in SWMM 5 you have the option of using either a Mass loading or a concentration loading (Figure 1).     If you have a concentration then the

## Convolution of the RDII UH from R, T and K in SWMM 5

Subject:  Convolution of the RDII UH from R, T and K in SWMM 5

The convolution uses the value of R and the Time Base to estimate the amount of Infiltration and Inflow in the Sewer Network.  The short, medium and long term UH‘s are estimated at each Wet Read the rest

## What are the Equations for Weirs in SWMM 5, Part 2?

Subject:   What are the Equations for Weirs in SWMM 5Part 2?

There are four types of Weirs in SWMM 5:  Transverse, Sideflow, V Notch and Trapezoidal.   The trapezoidal weir is a combination of the Sideflow and V Notch Weir and the Sideflow acts like a Transverse Read the rest

## Water Quality Treatment Removal Variables in SWMM5

Subject:    Water Quality Treatment Removal Variables in SWMM5

The treatment variables for Water Quality in a SWMM 5 storage unit (Figure 1) can be either:

1.       A Process Variable

a.       HRT or Hydraulic Residence Time

b.      DT or Time Step

c.       FLOW or The Current Inflow

d.      DEPTH or the Read the rest

## How does the Infiltration Maximum Time to Drain the Upper Soil Zone Work in SWMM 5 Green Ampt?

Subject:  How does the Infiltration Maximum Time to Drain the Upper Soil Zone Work in SWMM 5 Green Ampt?

You can use the monthly soil recovery factor (Figure 1) in SWMM 5 to change how the Infiltration Maximum Time to Drain the Upper Soil Zone (Figure 2) is computed Read the rest

## Dry Weather Flow in InfoSWMM and H2OMap SWMM

Dry Weather Flow in InfoSWMM and H2OMap SWMM

Dry weather flow can be added to any node in H2OMAP SWMM.  The dry weather flow is computed as the average flow * the monthly pattern * the daily pattern * hourly pattern * the weekend daily pattern to give the Read the rest

## Example DUPUIT-FORCHHEIMER APPROXIMATION FOR SUBSURFACE FLOW Model in SWMM 5

Subject:   Example  DUPUIT-FORCHHEIMER APPROXIMATION FOR SUBSURFACE FLOW Model in SWMM 5

This example was created from an older SWMM 4 model from 1988 using the SWMM 4 to SWMM 5 converter.  The values for the coefficients in this case are A1 = A3 = 4*K/L^2, A2 = 0, B1 or
