With BaSYS, the hydraulic capacity of the sewer network can be verified using the integrated hydrodynamic simulation process. Intuitive technical data forms provide detailed views and tables for data collection and the planning and administration of source and hydraulic data. Hydraulic variants support the design of different execution versions without changing the source data. Thanks to the technical data forms and interactive graphics, the calculation results can be easily verified in a variety of ways. General default data including sewer profiles, precipitation models and catchment area characteristics are stored in individually configurable libraries accessible across projects.
The hydrodynamic calculation program uses the MIKE1D calculation engine from DHI for the simulation. The Saint-Venant equations underlying the hydrodynamic sewer network simulation are also solved for the following boundary conditions:
The curve library supports the standardised and scalable specification of volume, pump, flow and throttle curves.
The sewer objects of the hydraulic network can be calculated directly from the database without changing the source data through hydraulic standby systems. For each calculation run, the hydrodynamic sewer network simulation takes into account all calculation elements such as pipes, open ditches, retaining basins, junctions, special structures, weirs, pumps and slide valves/throttles. Global pre-settings permit the parallel formulation and administration of various boundary conditions for the hydrodynamic simulation of the sewer network. Individual hydraulic conditions that deviate from the default settings can also be defined per sewer object. Rain from the rain type library is assigned to each calculation run.
Predefined database queries and reports are available for visualising the results of the hydrodynamic sewer network simulation. A statistical analysis of the results is performed with the BaSYS Dashboard, with the option of interactive filtering. Thus the current project status is interactively presented to decision makers. Hydrographs are generated for all calculated sewer objects and stored in the database by the calculation runs of the hydrodynamic sewer network simulation. In the forms, hydrograph values (flow, water level, overflow volume) are shown graphically and in table form, the extreme values in table form and fields. In BaSYS-Plan the data are visualised with theme plans, for example regarding the water level and hydraulic utilisation. An overview of results also shows the hydrographs for the active sewer object and the adjacent objects.
The dynamic longitudinal section corresponds to a video animation of the development of the water level situation over time in a chosen sequence of sewer segments. Thus the simulation results for critical sections of the sewer network can be realistically visualised. The animation is carried out automatically and/or with a manual slider. Interrupting the animation, stopping the slider or navigating directly to a time step produces a freeze frame that can be printed and/or exported.
