Hydrocad - Stage-Discharge rating table increments?

Hydrocad - Stage-Discharge rating table increments?

Hydrocad - Stage-Discharge rating table increments?

Any way to adjust the Stage-Discharge increment in HydroCad?
I have the outlet structures added and would like to have discharge rating for every 1-ft increment in Stage.
Any way to set the stage-Discharge increments? it appears to be set arbitrary by the program.

RE: Hydrocad - Stage-Discharge rating table increments?

The table increment is automatically set to display approximately 50 values when "Shrink" is selected, or you can deselect Shrink to display a larger table.

You can also set a preferred elevation step on the Reports tab of the Settings|Calculation screen.

If you want to post the file I can be more specific.

RE: Hydrocad - Stage-Discharge rating table increments?

You can set your preferred elevation step (1 foot) on the Reports tab of the Settings|Calculation screen.

But the table is always going to start at lowest elevation used in the pond. In your case this will be the break elevation for the siphon. And that may be your real problem: The siphon start and break elevations are below the bottom of the defined storage, which makes no sense. You also have a weir feeding the siphon?
