linear reservoir model
Update of my software to design a storm sewer system, in this version it is possible a more realistic schematization of the system and is fully compatible with Linux. I have added a further degree of relationship, reducing to zero the subdivision and the joining part by part of the system. Besides it produces a backup copy of the input data, so it is possible to change and analyze again the sewer.

In this tutorial I will show you how to use my program, storm_sewer.exe, in order to design a system, fixing the speed line by line. The sewer data are taken by a duplicated lecture note, so you will able to compare my results with these. Besides I prove how a complex system could be subdivided for a better compatibility with my software.
I publish an open source code that calculates line by line the suitable diameter for a given sewer system, using the linear reservoir model. It can design according to three different variables: speed, shear stress or slope of the line. It gives a final report, useful for calculus relations or following elaborations.
For developing the theory of linear reservoir model, I will try to design a small system shaped by 2 pipelines. In this example I show some useful table and I introduce the input data and calculations, in order to facilitate the comprehension and the using of my forthcoming FreeBASIC program.
In the past I created a little BASIC program to help me in the design of a storm sewer system, using the linear reservoir model. I am going to publish my work, but first I will introduce briefly the theory linked to this one. The article won't be too didactic and detailed, to do this I put some links.
The storm sewer is designed to drain excess rain and ground water from paved streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and roofs to collect them in proper deliveries.
