The Manhole Schedule displays a breakdown of the junctions in the current phase, their incoming and outgoing connections, and their respective flow control.
The Manhole Schedule form can be accessed from the Results Ribbon, when there is at least one junction in the network. Opening the form will display all manholes currently in the phase. The Schedule can then be refined to show different flow paths. You also have the option to view Simple Junctions, which is hidden by default.
The Manhole Schedule can also be exported to CAD with the layers, and table size configurable using CAD options. Additionally the Schedule can be exported to CSV.
The junctions are displayed as one continuous table, where each junction has its own three row block. If the Schedule flows to another page, the headers are repeated for ease of reading. The Manhole Schedule displays a number of attributes about the junction including the connections incoming and outgoing, and the flow control(s) currently being used.
In situations where the junction does not have any incoming or outgoing connections, the cell will be left blank. If the flow control is Free Discharge, then an Invert Level is not displayed either.
As there are rectangular and circular manholes, as well as simple junctions that all have their own attributes, the Manhole Schedule can look slightly different for each of these types/junctions. The same applies to the various connections. All attributes are listed below:
The Manhole Schematic is an accurate representation of the manhole and its connections. Each connection is labelled with a number for incoming connections and a letter for outgoing connections. The direction of the connection on the schedule matches with that of the plan. If dealing with For a circular manhole, then the incoming and outgoing connections meet at the intersection point. This means that if Manhole Sizing has occurred and produced an offset, the schematic will show that same offset. If the intersection point is located outside of the manhole, the schematic will not show the connections, and instead show a cross through the Manhole with the message "pipe(s) located outside of manhole".
A circular manhole is represented by a circle for the junction and an inner filled-in circle to represent the center point. A rectangular manhole shows a rectangle with the same ratio as its length and width, once again with a filled-in circle is found representing the its center. A simple junction is represented as only the center circle.
The Setting Out Information controls the ability to swap between true and site coordinates, which is then reflected on the Manhole Schedule. By default, this section is disabled and therefore true coordinates are used. This can be changed by checking the checkbox in this section to swap to site coordinates. By adjusting the Easting Origin and the Northing Origin, each junctions coordinates, and intersection points, are adjusted to match the newly specified site origin point. Adjusting the orientation rotates the site from true north that changes the junction coordinates, and intersection points, as well as rotating the schematic on the schedule to show that the connections are now entering the junction at a different angle. These changes are only applied once you click the apply Apply button is clicked, in which the form will then refresh with the updated coordinates. The inputted values are saved and applied to the schedule whenever the form is opened even on different phases. In order to swap back to true coordinates, and reset the setting out information, clear the checkbox, the schedule will update back to the true coordinates without the Apply button needing to be click.
Flow Path Selection
The default selection for the Manhole Schedule is to display all junctions on the site. This can be configured to display all flow paths, as well as allowing allow individual flow paths to be viewed.
The Manhole Schedule will update automatically when the check boxes are changed or when a flow path is created or deleted on the plan.
If the selection contains only simple junctions and they are not enabled, then the page will simply display No Valid Junctions.
CAD Options - Opens a form that allows certain options to be configured that will apply be applied when the Schedule is exported to CAD.
Header Font - Opens dialog box to allow changing of font, font style, text size, and script for the Hard Copy Heading.
The CAD Options form is used to set up the CAD Export options. The colours can be selected modified for each layer. The layers can be turned off if not desired using the lightbulb icons. Scaling factors can be selected for both horizontal and vertical axes, and a text height can be applied to ensure all text is a suitable height.
The navigation toolbar is used to navigate through each page of the Manhole Schedule by using the arrows or by entering a page number.
Additionally, page settings can be changed from this toolbar. You can also edit the properties, such as the page size and orientation the Schedule will update and resize to. You can also access the Parameters button, where you can edit the font size.
