Dear sir / madam,
I am using CivilStorm (Implicit SewerGEMS Dynamic Wave solver) for running a storm sewer network and I have realized that specially at the intersection of pipes (2 pipes or more) I do get a sudden jump in the HGL / EGL which makes no sense.
Can you please advise how can I have this issue solved?
Below is a screen shot with more clarity on the issue I am facing:
Even at time zero with almost no flow, still I get this strange jump in HGL/EGL
I have also attached the CivilStrom files for your reference.Using the - Implicit (SewerGEMS Dynamic Wave) - solver 1.zip
Thanks in advance,
This spike in EGL is due to the tributary pipes that are connected to those nodes at a higher elevation. More explanation about this situation can be found in the following wiki article: Spike in EGL in profile view when lateral pipes connect at a higher elevation

Your answer covers sudden spikes in the EGL but what about the HGL spikes that you see in my screen shots.
Amr, I took a closer look at the related development discussions and can confirm that what is described in the article applies to both EGL and HGL, in cases where tributary pipes connect at a higher elevation. You should be able to safely ignore this reporting quick in profile view. I have amended the article accordingly.
