How do I add an extreme flow or peaking factor to my model?Problem ID#: 68367
The first thing to know is that a peaking factor or extreme flow factor(as we call it in the software) is that it's only used for a steadystate model run, not an EPS model run.To apply the extreme flow factor they can follow the steps below: a) Go to Components > Extreme Flows and create either a newtable based extreme flow factor based on population or create a newequation based extreme flow factor based on population. There is moreinformation in the help documents for this part of the setup if youclick the blue question mark icon in the upper right side of the dialogbox. After you are done close the dialog box b) Go to Components > Extreme Flow Setups and create a newextreme flow setup. Here is where you select the extreme flows that youset up in the previous step under the extreme flow method column. Thehelp button in the lower right corner of the dialog box should explainany other questions on what columns are for this portion of the setup.After you are done close the dialog box c) Finally, go to Analysis > Calculation Options and doubleclick the calculation option for the scenario you are setting up toexpose the properties. Within the properties there is a field under the"Gravity Pressure Interface Options" section called Extreme Flow Setup.Here you use the drop down arrow to select the extreme flow setup thatyou just created in step "b". Once this is all set up you can then runyour model and the extreme flow factor you created will be applied.
