Sewer network operators require constant updates on the hydraulic conditions of their systems to ensure optimal network performance. In an operational setting, time is of the essence. Working with separate systems not only takes up unnecessary time, the integrity of data and information could be compromised. The operators would benefit greatly from a more efficient way to manage their sewer networks.
Barthauer integrated MIKE Powered by DHI’s MIKE 1D engine using MIKE 1D API, with the Barthauer interface ARENA directly in the network information system BaSYS. This means that BaSYS users can access the calculation parameters and results of MIKE URBAN directly.
For simulation, the hydrodynamic program uses DHI’s MIKE 1D calculation engine. The Saint-Venant equations underlying the channel network simulation are also solved for the following boundary conditions:
- Lowering curves for crashes and gradients
- Pulse losses due to cross-sectional and direction changes
- Dams including hydraulic losses in structures and shafts, especially in collecting troughs and outflow under shooters
- Storage in structures and shafts
The characteristic library enables the standardised and scalable specification of volume, pump, flow and throttle characteristics.
