HYDRAULIC ANALYSIS ON THE VIRTUAL PIPE BETWEEN THE BASE AND GROUND ELEVATIONS OF A TANK

Does watercad perform hydraulic analysis of the distance covered with pipes from the ground to the base elevation level of an elevated tank raised from the ground level?If not how can I factor the loses into my model?

  • Hello Allan,

    The pipe connecting to the base elevation of the tank in a network is not explicitly modeled in WaterCAD. However, you can add minor losses to the pipes for bends, valves etc. under the "Specify Minor Losses" field found in the pipe properties. Here is an article which describes in detail how multiple minor losses can be added to a pipe.

    Adding Multiple Minor Losses To a Pipe

    This way you can simulate the hydraulics and the resulting losses for your pipe connecting the elevated tank.

    Hope this helps.
