View Full Version : Modelling manhole with multiple permeable conduit outflows

Hi,
I want to create a bifurcation manhole with one inflow (conduit) and multiple outflows (conduits) at two different elevations.
Simulation ends if there's only one of the outflowing conduits defined as solution model = permeable. However, I'd like to add multiple permeable conduits flowing out, which doesn't seem to work, as simulation cannot sucessfully end.
Is there a limitation in the amount of permeable pipes connected to a manhole?

No idea, but a short dummy pipe to each permeable pipe might solve your problem if there is a limit. Or that may not be the issue at all .....

Cheers, Kristian, that's definitely an idea, yet it would be nice to have the least possible elements (nodes/links) in the model.
