Depressed Sewer / Inverted Siphon

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am in the process of modelling an inverted siphon (depressed sewer) within ESTRY, and before I get too far I thought I should stick up a post to see if anyone was aware of any 'special measures' this required. 

The upstream side of the siphon is to be connected to the 2D domain, and the downstream side to a 1D pipe network. I am proposing to model the siphon using two pipe nwk lines which meet at the siphons invert. So the pipe on the downstream side will have an adverse gradient (forming a v-shape under the road). I am hoping that this approach should avoid any overly short/steep reaches.

As I say, just interested to hear of anyone else's experience modelling such a structure.
