RDII in SWMM5

Unit Hydrographs

Unit Hydrographs (UHs) estimate rainfall-dependent inflow/infiltration (RDII) into a sewer system. A UH set contains up to three such hydrographs, one for a short-term response, one for an intermediate-term response, and one for a long-term response. A UH group can have up to 12 UH … Read the rest

Refactoring the SWMM 5 Help File – SWMM5 Introduction

Introducing EPA SWMM5

The EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) is a dynamic rainfall-runoff simulation model used for single event or long-term (continuous) simulation of runoff quantity and quality from primarily urban areas. The runoff component of SWMM operates on a collection of subcatchment areas that receive precipitation and generate … Read the rest

Refactoring the SWMM 5 Help File – Snowmelt in SWMM5

Snowmelt in SWMM5

Snowmelt

Snowmelt parameters are climatic variables that apply across the entire study area when simulating snowfall and snowmelt. They include:

· the air temperature at which precipitation falls as snow
· heat exchange properties of the snow surface
· study area elevation, latitude, and longitude correction.

Refactoring the SWMM 5 Help File – Routing in SWMM5

Routing in SWMM5

Flow Routing

Flow routing within a conduit link in SWMM is governed by the conservation of mass and momentum equations for gradually varied, unsteady flow (i.e., the Saint Venant flow equations). The SWMM user has a choice on the level of sophistication used to solve these equations:… Read the rest

Refactoring the SWMM 5 Help File – Groundwater in SWMM5

Groundwater in SWMM5

Aquifers

Aquifers are sub-surface groundwater zones used to model the vertical movement of water infiltrating from the subcatchments that lie above them. They also permit the infiltration of groundwater into the drainage system, or exfiltration of surface water from the drainage system, depending on the hydraulic gradient … Read the rest

Refactoring the SWMM 5 Help File – Nodes in SWMM5

Nodes in SWMM5

Nodes

Nodes are points of a conveyance system that connect conveyance links together. There are several different categories of nodes that can be employed:

· Junctions
· Outfalls
· Flow Dividers
· Storage Units

Nodes are also the points where external inflows can enter a drainage system … Read the rest
