Sanitary Sewers models complex networks in full or partial flow conditions. It has full design capabilities that size pipes, set inverted elevations for gravity lines and hydraulically model lift stations with multiple pumps. Specify design flows through land use analysis and/or by user-defined flows including infiltration rates and peak flow factors. Model new or existing sewer systems and compute the hydraulic grade line for each.

Sanitary Sewers New Enhancements

  • Sewer networks can be laid out along predefined paths.
  • Pick lines representing networks in a drawing to define sewer networks.
  • Inlets can be laid out based upon spacing parameters.
  • Pipes and inlets can be saved for use on other projects.
  • New defaulting capabilities have been added to plotted output.
  • The friction loss can now be calculated by Manning's or Hazen-Williams equations.
  • Watershed Modeling Hydrographs can be read for calculating inflow.
  • Manholes, pipes and inlets are all now stored in a central library that can be accessed in any project.
  • A pipe network can be imported from an Excel spreadsheet or Access database.
  • Junction losses can be unique for each pipe in the network. Fixed head loss, sudden expansion, sudden contraction and the AASHTO method for junction loss are now supported.
  • Infiltration specification on a per pipe basis.
  • Inverts can be set for a reach by slope. Junctions/manholes will automatically adjust based on the slope entered.
  • Enhanced global editing capabilities.

Sanitary Sewers Network Manager

If you need to evaluate multiple sewer networks in one project, Sanitary Sewers takes care of your needs. Sanitary Sewers has full analysis and design capabilities. You can determine the shortcomings in existing networks or let Sanitary Sewers automatically size pipes for new networks.

Compute Hydraulic Grade Line with Sanitary Sewers

  • Non-uniform and uniform flow analysis methods are available for Hydraulic Grade Line calculations.
  • Manning's Equation is used for determining friction losses.
  • Up to 2000 sewer lines can be input and evaluated per network under partial, full or surcharged flow conditions.
  • You can account for junction losses at manholes and friction slope averages using several methods.

Sanitary Sewers Managing Networks

  • Easily add new sections of pipe networks to existing systems and perform analysis and design at the same time.
  • Insert new lines and/or remove old lines while allowing the entire network to update or stay static.
  • Define design constraints to meet your exacting standards.
  • You can customize the pipe sizes used in your network to force the calculations not to use certain sizes.
  • A minimum velocity requirement insures that your network flows at your desired rate, while the minimum depth of cover requirement controls elevations of your inverts or crowns. Sanitary Sewers is intelligent enough to tell you when one condition would violate the other and lets you specify which one controls.
  • Extract ground profiles for rim elevations and cover calculations from a Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) created by Surface Modeling or import an ASCII file created by a spreadsheet, database program or text editor.
  • Graphically stretch your pipe network to move an inlet to a new location and have the pipe network dynamically relink itself to the inlet. All of the network annotation also updates as the network is modified.
  • Use Sanitary Sewer's global editing capability to change dozens of network parameters in one step.

Sanitary Sewers Pump Stations

  • Create your own pump performance curves for any condition.
  • Up to 3 pumps per force main can be handled.
  • You can set the pump on/off elevations for each pump in a station.
  • Easily account for discharge piping losses.
  • The system operating points are computed as required.
  • Automatic modified pump curves for head losses are available for up to 3 pumps.

Sanitary Sewers Design Flows

  • Land use analysis or user-defined flows including infiltration rates, peak flow factors and variable peak factors are available to set your design flows.

Sanitary Sewers Plan and Profile Sheets

  • Sanitary Sewers has hundreds of settings built into the Plan and Profile Sheet Generator to allow you to customize sheets according to your own specifications.
  • Define your sheets by specifying the design reach or defining a reference alignment to base stationing and offsets on.
  • After your sheets have been created, you can perform on-screen sheet adjustments to move your plan view up or down, move your profile up or down, move the entire sheet left or right, and rotate your plan.
  • Easily have your sheet border appear on every sheet.
  • Create plan only, profile only or profile over plan sheets. A custom setup area opens the create options to customize nearly everything about how your sheets are created.

Sanitary Sewers Reports

  • Dozens of options let you create fully customizable output reports.
  • Several preset input and output reports are available to provide information to your clients.

Sanitary Sewers Requirements

Pentium with 16 MB RAM and AutoCAD R12 or higher.
