Updated – Innovyze St Venant Solutions for InfoSWMM, InfoSewer, H2OMap SWMM and InfoWorks ICM and InfoWorks ICM SE

The assumptions behind Lumped and Distributed Models along with the assumptions of the St Venant Equations. InfoSWMMH2OMap SWMM, InfoSWMM, H2OMap SWMM, SWMM5, ICM and ICM SE are all Distributed models for Unsteady flow. InfoSWMM and InfoSWMMH2OMap SWMM have options for direct steady flow. ICM and InfoSWMM can also use a quasi steady flow solution. All of these Innovyze models use the Continuity Equation and Momentum equation for routing flows in links.

The Non Linear Term in the Saint Venant Equation of SWMM 5

Subject: Non Linear Term in the Saint Venant Equation of SWMM 5 The flow equation has six components that have to be in balance at each time step: 1. The unsteady flow term or dQ/dt 2. The friction loss term (normally based on Manning's equation except for full force mains), 3. The bed slope term or dz/dx […]

All Possible Culverts Example Model in SWMM5

Note:  Attached is an example SWMM 5 model that has all 57 culvert types possible in SWMM 5 in one model.  The culverts are 57 small individual networks consisting of an inflow node, an upstream open channel, upstream node for the culvert, culvert link with culvert code, downstream node of the culvert, downstream open channel and finally […]

Link Simulated Parameters used in either the Normal Flow or St Venant Equation of SWMM 5

Subject:  Link Simulated Parameters used in either the Normal Flow or St Venant Equation of SWMM 5   St. Venant equation – this is the link attribute data used when the St. Venant Equation is used in SWMM 5.  Simulated Parameters from the upstream, midpoint and downstream sections of the link are used. Normal Flow Equation – this is the link attribute data used when the Normal Flow Equation is used in SWMM 5. Only simulated parameters from the upstream end of the link areused if the normal flow equation is used for the time step. […]

Four cross sectional areas are used in a link of SWMM 5

Note: Four cross sectional areas are used in a link of SWMM 5. The weighted hydraulic radius (Rwtd) is a function of the Froude Number of the link and the upstream and downstream hydraulic radius.  The Rwtd value is used in the computation of […]

Hysteresis Effect in the Link Flow versus Depth Relationship in SWMM 5

Subject:  Hysteresis Effect in the Link Flow versus Depth Relationship in SWMM 5 You can often get a hysteresis effect for the Flow versus Depth relationship in SWMM 5 due to the five component St. Venant equation used to simulate the flows (http://swmm5.blogspot.com/2010/12/what-are-units-for-five-st-venant-flow.html) .  A hysteresis effect is having two or more flow values for the same depth value in the link.
