Problem

How are Pressure Junctions handled in different solvers of storm-sewer products?

Problem ID#: 84527

Solution

GVF-Rational solver - pressure Junctions are treated as bolted manhole with a diameter set to zero. Rim elevation is set to highest crown elevation of the connected pressure pipe(s).

GVF-Convex solver – Pressure junctions are treated as expected.

Implicit - Pressure junctions are treated as expected.

Explicit - Pressure junctions are treated as manholes with high surcharge
