Detention Pond Design

By: Computational Hydraulics  09-12-2011

  • Instantly determine required storage volume (to match pre-development peak flow or other criteria) with the storage optimizer tool
  • Flexibly model outlet structures using either empirical rating curves or accurate, deterministic modeling of multiple physical outlet structures
  • Accurately model backwater effects, tailwater submergence, energy losses and more
  • Analyze the cumulative impact of multiple detention facilities on the larger drainage system
  • Compare pre and post development hydrology in graphs, HGL profiles and reports
  • Create design storms for both major and minor events with the comprehensive storm distribution library in the Design Storm Creator tool, including standard SCS, Huff, AES, Chicago, etc. as well as locally-required design storm distributions
  • Model pond infiltration/exfiltration and evaporation
  • Efficiently test the hydraulic design with simultaneous running of multiple design storms in the same time it takes for a single SWMM run (with multi-core CPU support)
  • Optimize storage and outlet parameters efficiently and easily using the unique sensitivity-based radio-tuning calibration and optimization utility
  • Verify pollutant removal and/or seasonal behavior through comparison of long term continuous scenarios with an unlimited number of quality constituents

Dual Drainage Design - Solutions

Create design storms for both major and minor events with the comprehensive storm distribution library in the Design Storm Creator tool, including standard SCS, Huff, AES, Chicago, etc. as well as locally-required design storm distributions. Unlimited network sizes and unlimited time steps are allowed, and the dual drainage systems need not be parallel (they may flow in arbitrary directions).

Model Review Services - CHI Services

CHI can review your models and provide feedback to help ensure efficiency and accuracy of the model, which in turn can save you time and money. With an urban drainage model review there are a number of different elements that should be studied. Planning, design, construction and management.
