How Orifices and Weirs Work in SWMM 5

How Orifices and Weirs  Work in SWMM 5.   The inputs to the orifice flow  calculator are

Step 1

If the head in the orifice or the rules for  the  orifice cause the orifice to  be closed then the flow is zero.

Step 2

If the inlet depth to the  orifice … Read the rest
