Problem entering manual hydrographs into a link for multiple storm events

Problem entering manual hydrographs into a link for multiple storm events

Problem entering manual hydrographs into a link for multiple storm events

(OP)
I have a project with multiple storms defined within it (named "1" "2" "5" etc)
I create a new link.
I select "Link Type (enter hydrograph manually)"
The "Manual" tab appears
Under the "event" dropdown I select "1"
I enter a flow at 0.0 hours (I only want constant flows for each event)
I click Apply
Under the "event" dropdown I select "2"
I enter a higher flow at 0.0 hours
I click Apply
Under the "event" dropdown I select "5"
I enter an even higher flow at 0.0 hours
I click Apply

I go back to check, and the flow I entered for "5" has been applied to all the prior storms, and overwritten the values entered earlier.

I go back to the "event" dropdown and I select "1"
I enter my original flow at 0.0 hours
I click Apply
This flow has now been applied to the 1, 2, and 5 year events.

I check all my storms, and it appears as if the "Event" dropdown is applying all data entry I do in the hydrograph section to all storms instead of the one I have selected, even though I'm on a specific storm instead of the "any" option.

Thoughts?

You need to check the box for "Multi-Event". This will open up a separate column for each event. Otherwise you get only one column which will be used only for the specified event.

I'm sure this is probably like when you're staring into the refrigerator right at the ketchup and still can't find it, but is it in another tab than the manual tab?

Ah! You need to update! The multi-event capability was added in HydroCAD 10.0-17 in 2016.

You can use your original HydroCAD-10 download email to get the 10.0-25 release and you'll be all set.

There's also a new version 10.1 as discussed at www.hydrocad.net/info101.htm
