    Drainage Design and Analysis

    Draining water no matter the storm

Drainage Design and Analysis Solution

Drainage systems comprise a complicated mix of components, from street inlets to pipes, and from streams and open channels to ponds and control structures that are designed to attenuate flow or prevent pollution. Our drainage solution can help you understand and effectively design these types of systems ranging from civil drainage projects to more complex land development studies.

Capabilities
  • Design and analyze low impact development controls

    • Model the effect that low impact development controls have in retaining runoff before it enters the stormwater system.​​
  • Design and analyze pond and outlets

    • Leverage PondMaker's guiding process through the confusing maze of pond design steps by following the step-by-step process that provides constant feedback on how the design is progressing. Set the maximum outflow rate, estimate storage, and check the outlet design and final design.​
  • Design drainage systems

    • ​Use terrain models and hydraulic simulation to assess network performance and create 3D models. Apply design storms and rainfall-runoff methods to automatically optimize inlet location, pipe size, elevations, and detention pond characteristics to mitigate flooding and meet regulatory requirements.
  • Design inlets and gullies

    • ​Design and analyze inlet location and capacity to regional and national standards to ensure maximum allowable flow widths in the gutter are not exceeded. Assign carry-over flows to gutter for conveyance to downstream inlet. Use inbuilt HEC-22 and U.K. standards or user defined inflow/capture curves.
  • Model surcharge and flood protection

    • ​Use an integrated solution comprising hydraulic models for runoff and flow calculations, and 3D civil design tools to identify locations where system capacity is inadequate to handle heavy rainfall effectively. Then design facilities to prevent surcharge and flooding.
