An Overview of Autodesk Storm Water Design Tools

Brian J. Hailey, of CAD1, reviews and discusses the number different Storm Water tools inside AutoCAD Civil 3D.
There are tools that come with AutoCAD Civil 3D (Hydraflow Hydrographs, Hydraflow Storm Sewers, Hydraflow Express, River and Flood Analysis, and Storm and Sanitary Analysis), and the tools that are available in InfraWorks (catchments, culverts, drainage networks, etc.).

A big issue with Autodesk Pipes is understanding what tool does what.


 Analyze a Gravity Network

Analyze a Gravity Network


John Sayre of Autodesk quickly demos the 2017 and new 2018 Gravity Analysis Wizard.
Where to get to the wizard in the v1 Enhancement Toolbox is covered.

The Civil 3D Gravity Analysis Wizard

John demos the 2017+ Gravity Analysis Wizard and Pipe System Sizing Tool.
The tool supports the FHA (HEC 22 2009) Standards.
This tool is also included in Civil 3D 2018 release.
From the from John Sayre YouTube channel


Note that John employs Known Q inlet values in the video (a regular input value) and not cachement to inlet methodology which is also supported.

This link to the Civil 3D 2018 on-line help includes a decent overview of the Gravity Analysis Wizard This link to the Civil 3D 2017 v1 Enhancement on-line help includes the same overview of the Gravity Analysis Wizard

Pay very careful attention to your Parts List, cachment construction, and the Wizard Settings before pushing the button.
