You can carry on from the previous Chapter or open XP_Tutorial4.xpdx.
Now that the Treatment Train is laid out you can review the Analysis Criteria and Rainfall set up by browsing to the Analysis ribbon and selecting Analysis Criteria.
Now that we know our network is valid we can run the analysis. This can be done by selecting Go under the Analysis ribbon.
Note: Validation is automatically run when selecting Go.
This then opens up the following window which displays the status in the pipes for either all items or specific connections. As we only have one flow path it does not matter if the Select Filter option is selected as All Items or Flow Path.
The Critical Storm for pipes can be determined by selecting Critical Storm at the top of the window. This allows you to analyse which storms provide the worst conditions for the pipes in your network.
After running the analysis the Stormwater Controls Summary window is automatically displayed, within this window we can select Critical Storm, just like with the pipes, to show us the worst case scenario.
From these results we can see that the stormwater control is coping with the volume of water, even with the critical storm. However, as we previously saw with the Phases Report, we are discharging at too high a rate therefore we will alter the pond in the next section to mitigate this.
