Fireflow Part 1: Basics

Fireflows are an integral part of the Hydraulic modeling process and provide a means to calibrate your model.  Fireflow represents the amount of water available in a network for fire protection purposes apart from the amount of water used in … Continue reading

Using Float Valves as Altitude Valves in InfoWater, H2ONET, or H2OMAP Water

Float valves are one valve type available to use within the InfoWater, H2ONET or H2OMAP Water software that may not be as widely used as more common valve types such as a Pressure Reducing Valves (PRVs) or a Flow Control Valves … Continue reading

Throttle Control Valves – A few clarifying notes on their use in InfoWater, H2OMAP, and H2ONET

Throttle control valves are one feature within the software that may or may not get used as much by different modelers as other valve types, but are another tool that in the modeler’s toolbox that can be used. Due to … Continue reading

Advanced Modeling of Pressure Control Valves within InfoWater

Why do you need Advanced Valve Control? Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) and Pressure Sustaining Valve (PSV) are widely used in the water models to separate pressure zones and avoid extremely high and low pressures within a water distribution network. As … Continue reading

Hydrant Curve simulations: How is existing demand at the hydrant considered?

H2OMAP Water, InfoWater and H2ONET all offer the “Hydrant Curve” simulation type. This type of simulation allows you to choose any junction in any scenario at any single time step and develop a hydrant curve to indicate the fire flow … Continue reading
