Problem Description

I have input my inflows on my manholes as hydrograph loads and need to double the flows to simulate a larger storm event. How can i do this?

Steps to Resolve

Global Edit the flows in the inflow control center

Note that you will only be able to do this for one element at a time.

  1. Open the inflow control center (Tools > Inflow Control Center)

  2. Click on the first rows head to select it. This will bring up the hydrograph load associated with that element on the right side of the window.

  3. Locate the 'Flow' column header and right click on it.

  4. Select 'Global Edit' from the pop up menu and then use the pull down box to choose your operation. Then set your value appropriately.

  5. Click Ok to initiate the function.

  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for all the elements that need to have their hydrograph updated.
