Soakwell Modelling/Surcharging Pits

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Does anyone have any advice on how best to model a soakpit? The soak pit is similar to a 1050mm diameter pit, 3m depth and field inlet. The soakwell has a connecting upstream 450RCP. I am currently modelling it as a Q type pit but it doesn't seem to be representing it well. Ideally it would be good if there was a surcharging manhole options so that you could see when the soak pit initially blows out. But as far as I know surcharging manhole isnt an option currently in TUFLOW.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Bonnie,

Surcharging manholes are not currently supported in TUFLOW, however they are on our development list to consider for future releases.

Q pit with 1d_na user defined storage might be a reasonable workaround in the meantime. Is there a storage node in your current model?
