How to Make Break Nodes in #INFOSWMM and #InfoSWMM SA
You would add a break node to break up long force mains so that the pipe(s) react faster to the pump flows.
- Find your long FM or long Gravity Main links
- Insert a Node into the middle of the link to break the link into two links with the same geometry but different lengths
- Use the Node Inference tool to estimate the new nodes invert based on the immediate upstream and downstream node inverts
- If you make a new for a FM, please also use this tool which will set the Surcharge depth – 1000 is a bit high.
Set the surcharge depth..
