Design Pipes

 

You can design a pipe to carry the peak flow of the current Inflow hydrograph. If no hydrograph has been calculated you can specify a desired constant flow.

For the peak flow you will be shown a table of diameters, gradients and average velocities which represent a feasible design. You can either choose one of these diameter-gradient pairs by double clicking on a row in the table or you can enter explicit values for diameter and gradient.

MIDUSS carries out a uniform flow analysis and reports the actual and relative depth, velocity, pipe capacity and also the critical depth. You can experiment by changing either the pipe roughness (i.e. the Manning 'n') or the diameter or gradient and press the [Design] button to see the results.
