Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

I am attempting to model a system that has three identical outlets going to different locations and am having touble figuring out how to do so.  I understand that with two outlets in different directions you can use primary and secondary but am unable to figure out how to split the flow into three directions or more.  Any information on how to do this would be helpful.  Thank you very much.

RE: Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

You can use "Discarded" for a third outflow, as long as you don't neet to route it.

Otherwise, you could route two outlets together (as secondary) and then use a link to split the flow in half.

RE: Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

Please expand on how you would "...use a link to split the flow in half."

RE: Multiple Pond Outlets in HydroCAD

To split the flow, route the pond into a link.  Edit the link, select the advanced tab, and set the outflow factor to 50%.

The link will now have a primary outflow equal to 50% of the inflow.  The remiander of the inflow (also 50% in this case) will appear as the secondary outflow.
