of the most painstaking tasks of analyzing a hydraulic profile
is having to re-analyze everything if there is a design change
or simply even a flow change. Hydraulic profiles are
subject to the "ripple effect" - if something is
changed, that change can affect many or all of the hydraulic
profile upstream of that point. This is where the use of
hydraulic modeling can substantially save time and money.
If you have a design change, simply change it in the model, and
the hydraulic profile will be recalculated for you.
a hydraulic profile can include simple modifications, such as
changing a pipe length, to major changes, such as inserting a
section between two existing sections or deleting a section of
the profile. In any case, even simple changes can have
dramatic affects. These changes can be simply accounted
for by using all of Visual Hydraulic's built-in editing features.
