How Do the TimeOpen and TimeClose Controls Work in #SWMM 5.1.012

This is part of the #Inside_#SWMM5 series of blogs and is intended as a visual aid and code developer for the Storm Water Management Model Reference Manuals on https://www.epa.gov/water-research/storm-water-management-model-swmm I always think images (and some words) are best at explaining the internal working of code. I do encourage you to … Read the rest

Setting Controls For The Pump and Orifice in #InfoSWMM and #SWMM5

Setting Controls For The Pump and Orifice

Using H2OMap SWMM , you may control the operational status of pumps and flow regulating structures by specifying their initial status, using the simple control rule, or using the RTC rule functionality. You will utilize all these three features to set the operational … Read the rest
