Chamber Wizard Slope?

Chamber Wizard Slope?

Chamber Wizard Slope?

I am reviewing a design that uses ADS-StormTech SC-740 chambers. I am using HydroCad to check the design. The proposed design has a 0.5% slope. There appears to be no option for entering a slope value when using the Chamber Wizard. I've also encountered this when using the Chamber Wizard with standard round pipe. Under Select New Storage Option -> Basic Options -> Pipe Storage it does allow for entering a slope value. However,under Parabolic Arch and Prefab Chamber options there is no field for entering a slope value. What slope does HydroCad apply to Chamber Wizard storage? Is there a way to apply a slope vaule to Chamber Wizard, Parabolic Arch, or Prefab Chamber designs?

RE: Chamber Wizard Slope?

Your information is basically correct. Chambers are always modeled as level. Pipe storage can be sloped if you use the manual modeling option, but will be level if you use the chamber wizard.
