Select Pipe ID to be retained after reduction of series pipes with similar attributes. Six options are available to choose from including maintaining the ID of the longer pipe, shorter pipe, larger diameter pipe, smaller diameter pipe, larger friction factor pipe, or smaller friction factor pipe.
Select method for re-allocating demands from all dissolved interior junction nodes to their respective end nodes. Five options to distribute demands are available to choose from including a distance weighted or evenly distributed approach, to the nearest or furthest junction, or proportional to the existing demand.
Automatically compute lengths of all the pipes being reduced from their corresponding graphical representations.
Select the maximum number of levels for iterative network reduction application. If unchecked, the network reduce routine will continue until no further levels are found.
.Retain (will not be reduced) pipes that have an elevation difference between their end (terminal) nodes greater than to the value specified
Retain (will not be reduced) pipes that have a difference between their diameters greater than to the value specified.
