Pond design for multiple storm events

Pond design for multiple storm events

Pond design for multiple storm events

Does Hydrocad have a "Pond Wizard" that appears to be available in other software?  In addition, I see that multiple storm events have to be entered separately, so how do you design a pond with multiple structures (corresponding to 2, 10, and 100 year storms) if the pond isn't evaluating them together?

RE: Pond design for multiple storm events

You need to model one storm event at a time.  Start by setting the smallest design storm, and adjust the pond design to achieve the desired results.  Repeat for each successive rainfall depth.

Changing the rainfall depth takes just a second, and the project is automatically updated for the new rainfall.  You can even leave the pond report window open while you change the rainfall, and the report will be immediately updated.

RE: Pond design for multiple storm events

The latest HydroCAD-7 release can handle multiple storm events automatically.  Just pick the storm you want from the drop-down list and everything is automatically updated.  When you print reports, you can include any or all defined events, as you wish.  For details see www.hydrocad.net/update.htm
