View Full Version : Ground elevation in profiles containing open water sections and culverts

February 2, 2015, 11:59 AM
Hello! I am using InfoSWMM and attempting to profile a stormwater system that has a few open area trapezoidal swales to culverts. The culverts are mostly below large road embankments. I am using a fake junction to connect the open swale 'conduit' to the culvert conduit inlet and outlet elevations. The problem is in the profile, the ground elevation is connected from fake junction inlet to fake junction outlet elevations, so the ground elevations appears to go through the culvert pipe, instead of up and over with the embankment. Is there a better way to model the open areas and culverts elevations or adjust the ground elevation between junctions? Thank you!

Hello SJ,
Why can't you just raise the maximum node depths at the beginning and end of the culverts to the embankment depth?
