Our Codes and Software

This model is intended for simulating transient free surface flows, transient pressurized flows and the simultaneous occurrence of free surface and pressurized flows in complex closed-conduit systems. In the ITM model the free surface region is modeled using the 1D Saint-Venant equations and the pressurized region is modeled using the 1D compressible waterhammer equations. The ITM model can simulate complex boundaries such as dropshafts, reservoirs, rating curves, gates and junctions with any number of inflowing and outflowing pipes. Continue reading
