1. Introduction
This tutorial is created to explain the basic issues about software Urbano Canalis 7. The whole tutorial will be performed in the one drawing ( 00 Tutorial Initial.dwg). All the important steps in design of sewage network will be explained. It is assumed that Civil 3D and Urbano 7 software family are correctly installed on computer. It is also assumed that the basic knowledge of AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D exists. In the example, simple sewage network will be created. Terrain elevations in manholes will be calculated upon Civil 3D digital terrain model. The example drawing has 3D elements which are necessary to create DTM. Network will be created upon helping elements (circles and polylines). All actions will be made according to prepared definitions and configurations (labels, table views, longitudinal sections). The creation of appropriate configurations will not be subject of this tutorial. If tutorial is successfully repeated, the user will have basic knowledge about functioning of the software. Based on this knowledge, by using additional documentations and materials, user will be able to efficiently use the software. Every important step will have appropriate drawing saved, so user can check if specific step is successfully repeated. The whole tutorial example is consisting of following files: • • • • • • • • 00 Tutorial Initial.dwg Clip Novi.tif example Clip Novi.tfw raster Catalog_Trench.xml initial drawing raster image which is background of

All *.XML files should be copied to install directory of Urbano 7. If you already did any customization such as defining your own manholes or pipes DO NOT use XML files. You will be able to repeat, in general, steps from tutorial with your own configurations. In general if any kinds of configurations are used in the drawing, they can be replaced with different configurations. It is not important to have exactly the same configurations like in description.

In the tutorial we will use the next abbreviations:

The screen should look like bellow: To show all elements for DTM switch on all the layers which has prefix „ DTM“. Generating of DTM with Civil 3D The drawing 00 Tutorial Initial. type the command WS in the command line of Civil 3D.2. to activate Urbano Main WorkSpace. After creating of Civil 3D DTM and moving to 3D view the drawing should look like picture bellow: 5 . styles and longitudinal sections. labels. thematic maps. Main WorkSpace shows definition of sewage system with prepared configurations for previews. Start if necessary Civil 3D Toolspace and create surface from shown elements. DTM should be created from 3D points and 3D lines (option Drawing Objects). DTM_building_area and DTM_fill. When drawing is opened.dwg should be open in Civil 3D with Urbano 7 profile (after installation you should have appropriate icon on desktop). Additionally the breaklines can be generated from the line elements which are on layers DTM_road.

The drawing with Civil 3D DTM created is saved under name 01 DTM.dwg. 6 .

The main one has to follow the yellow circles numbered from the point (circle) 1 to point 13. and for Sections label L Direction. 5 channels (arrays) will be created. select for the Nodes label 1 Name Terrain. Three channels (yellow. The property list should look like: 7 . After that the next picture will appear: In the example. part Labels. The property window should appear. In the property window. Start the interactive definition of the network from the Main WorkSpace (Draw (RC)->Draw Network System). Definition of network Switch off all DTM layers and switch on the layer 1_Helping_Points. Additional two channels will be created by conversion from drawn polylines (yellow ones).

Node/manhole at point 7 (connection with the polyline from the right) has to be connected precisely by using Osnap End or Osnap Center option.Pick the button Draw and start the network drawing. The same should be performed at point 11 and connection with the second polyline. zoom in to inspect the node and section labels. The first channel should start from the point 1 down to point 6. 8 . Program shows the tooltip with the length of the section. It is not necessary to pick exactly in the center of the circle. The created channel should be similar like in bellow picture. When channel is created. Circles are placed approximately.

in the property list. Just pick close to point 3 and program will make appropriate connection to the main channel. It is not important if node positions are not exactly on defined circles. When approaching the connection with the main channel (point 3). activate option for Constant section length. With the ENTER key finish the definition of the first channel. Before drawing. and choose option Opposite of flow direction. Pick first two or three points and from property list. With the ENTER key finish the definition of second channel. Start the drawing of the third channel (magenta points). Draw few sections. activate the option Draw direction. or just type the new value (for example 30). under section Draw. Switch off. Close the Draw network system property list After definition of three channels the drawing should look like: 9 . in the property list. When the new position of the node should be defined. with dragging of the mouse. Start the definition of channel from the point 5 of main channel to magenta point 1. the yellow circle around node 3 of the main channel will appear. and continue until reach point 8. part Draw.Repeat the same procedure (just pick on Draw button in property list) for the channel which will follow the cyan points (from 1 to 8 with the connection to main channel at point 3). and continue to define nodes of second channel. segments of defined length will appear. Choose one of the offered values (40 or 80). option for Constant section length.

Now it is necessary to create the parts of the network from AutoCAD polylines (yellow ones). Pick the button Convert and additional channels are added to existing network. as shown on next picture: With the button Select drawing elements select two yellow polylines which start/end at the points 7 and 11 of the main channel. From the WorkSpace pick on button New and select the option Conversion from AutoCAD elements. as shown on bellow picture: 10 .

Defined network can be compared with the drawing 02 Network.dwg 11 .

Shift+Pick. like Select all. the table view will show all the data. If Right click is performed. Section length. Review of the network When the sewage network is defined and created it is possible to inspect the topology and geometry through Previews (Table Views). For a while only columns with Name.4. One is for the sections and the second one is for nodes/manholes. Ctrl+Pick. It is possible to create arbitrary different table views. Copy Selected and so on. The table with the data about sections should appear. like in bellow picture: In the table view it is possible to inspect all elements of the network. Start the table view for the sections (Previews -> Sections -> 0 Section Geometry) by double click from the Workspace. In the example there are two basic table views defined. Ctrl+Shift+Pick) select one or more records (rows) in the table views. It is possible to perform lot of actions inside of table view. Starting and Ending node are filled. when pipe invert will be defined and diameters calculated. In the next picture there is explanation of all buttons and possible actions for table view: 12 . by using usual Windows techniques (Pick. there are additional options available. Later on. First of all it is possible.

recapitulation will give the summary just for selected part. Pick on Section Length and sections will be sorted according to their length. Inside of table view press Right Click (RC) and choose option Select All. Copy selected. another Windows application can be chosen. Instead of Excel. Select All. Appropriate element (row) in the table should be selected (or more than one) and zoom icon should be picked. If you click once again. RC and Paste. it is very simple to do it.Recapitulation First of all. we would like to know how long is drawn network and how many pipes are in the network. Transferring the data to other Windows application Content of any table view can be easily transferred to any Windows application. Sorting of elements in table view Table view can be sorted according to any numerical value. If we do not select the whole network. Zoom scale can be changed to proper value (current one is 1. For example we will sort table view according to length of the sections. selected element(s) will be shown and table view will reappear after ENTER. Start Excel. sorting will be performed in reverse order. RC. Again press RC and choose Recapitulation Summary. The table view will temporarily disappear.5). The yellow balloon appears which shows that system is 1660 m long and that has 41 pipes (the result can vary in your example). Sorting is performed by simply clicking on column names in the table view. Zooming to selected elements in the drawing If some elements need to be better viewed in the drawing. Selecting parts of the network in table view 13 . but just some part of it. In the active table view press RC.

The table view will temporary disappear and selected sections are colored by thick yellow line. When that button is picked. Let's say that we would like to emphasize the 5 longest sections in the drawing. It can be done by Topology Selection Button. with all elements in the system. all elements of the network are shown. the pop-down list is opened. can be achieved by using option Current System. current system (the whole system) or to use AutoCAD selection.By default. With the ENTER key table will appear again. In the drawing there are two styles defined. It is possible to select one or more channels/arrays. from which different options are available. one or more branches. from the Style pop-down list choose Yellow Thick and start the brush icon right to style list. 14 . Default table view. Table view will show just sections of that channel. Firstly sort the table view according to length ( Section length). select the first 5 sections. when table view is initially started. To better inspect some parts of the network it is necessary to restrict number of elements which are shown inside of table view. Style can be erased with the appropriate button right to previous button or from the Workspace later on. Styles can be used to emphasize some elements of the system (as result of some query or similar). Applying of different style In the Urbano it is possible to define arbitrary number of styles. Select the option of Array and pick in the drawing close to main channel (that one which is defined the first). Use different options of selecting different parts of the network. one for the sections ( Yellow Thick) and one for the nodes (Yellow Circle).

Start the appropriate table view. Choose table style StudioARS_1. After that it is necessary to define the position of the table in the drawing. like in picture: Start the preview for the nodes and repeat some or all actions which are described for table view of the sections.Showing of table view as AutoCAD table Any table view can be transferred to AutoCAD drawing area by using well known AutoCAD table. select just main channel with Topology Selection Button (option Array) and pick icon for table definition in the table view. Table with all values appears in the drawing area. 15 .

Changing the names of the arrays In the editing we will do just some basic operations. Branch is sequence of sections from the beginning/end to junction of three or more pipes. branches and systems. On the dialog switch on the option for definition of legend position. Only Urbano commands can be used. Nodes are basically manholes in sewage system. Topology in Urbano is organized through following elements: nodes. First of all we will change the names of arrays and nodes. Arrays represent channels (sequence of branches). Editing functions are divided according to topology elements. arrays. The system is overall definition of the network. Sections represents pipe which connects two manholes. Position the legend on appropriate place. Much more about topology in Urbano can be read from separate document. It is not possible to use plain AutoCAD command for modification of the network. and press Show. Start appropriate configuration of thematic mapping – Arrays (Theme mappings -> Sections -> Arrays (DC)). All necessary modifications can be performed with intelligent procedures. To see existing array names we will start theme mappings according to arrays. sections.5. The picture should look like bellow: 16 . Editing of network Drawn network can be modified with a lot algorithms and procedures.

Program colored the network elements according to array/channel definition. Repeat the procedure for all other channels/arrays. The next dialog appears: From the pop-down list of Edit mode select Rename option. Selection is performed by simply clicking close to the channel. rename to R1. With Arrays selection button select from the drawing main channel which has name A0 the channel which we drew the first (the red one on previous picture -colors and names can vary in your example). The array names are generic ones and we would like to change those names. After renaming start again thematic mapping according to arrays. R2 and R3. The fourth channel should have the name L1. The three channels on the right side. Drawing should look like bellow: 17 . RC on Editing in Workspace and pick on Edit Arrays. to see the difference (drawing was not update automatically). For the new name type MAIN.

select array MAIN and with the button „Move UP“ on the right side. and choose Edit nodes. It is possible to change the names node by node interactively or use some automatic ways of renaming. Be sure that option Arrays (Names by branches/arrays) is selected. dot and counter. Press the button Set parameters (on the right side of edit box which defining prefixes and suffixes). In the list of array names. That means that the name of every node will be created of array name. With Topology Selection Button choose Current System. The dialog should look like: 18 . move it to the first position. In the Prefix edit box type sign „@“ and point „.Changing the node names When network was initially defined. program automatically created the node names. That option is very convenient and frequently used in sewage design. To change the node names there are special functions in the software. Changing the node names can be performed in different ways. Start editing of nodes by RC on Editing in Workspace. You should select the option Rename-by arrays/branches. Node names will be created with the prefix of channel name and counter.“.

and inspect how the labels of nodes are updated. zoom in. as shown on bellow picture: 19 . program automatically changes all the node names.After button Apply is pressed. In the drawing.

The command for editing of nodes should be started (Pick Editing in Workspace -> RC->Edit nodes). Start from the Workspace command for editing of sections (Editing (RC) -> Edit Sections).3 is erased and nodes L1. select option Multiple Sections. activate option Erase outlet section. select the array L1 (the three sections which remained). From Topology Selection Button. Start thematic mapping to update the legend (it is not done automatically). After applying the whole L1 array is erased. It is not permitted to erase network elements by AutoCAD Erase command. select the node L1. With the button Array select. Erasing of the nodes can be repeated or more than one node can be selected. functions for erasing of any network element are available. Be sure that option Do not erase nodes is switched off. Be sure that option Do not erase nodes is switched off.4 are connected by single section.3 (third node on channel L1). sections. selected sections are erased. Open Topology Selection Button. From the top pop-down list select action Erase. From the top pop-down list select Erase.2 and L1. It is possible to erase nodes. branches or arrays. together with free nodes which belong to erased sections only (nodes which will not be connected to any section if sections are erased) Start the command for editing of arrays (Workspace ->Editing (RC) -> Edit arrays). After applying. From the top pop-down list select action Erase. select the option Node and then in the drawing. After applying.Erasing of network elements If necessary. We will erase some elements in the array/channel L1. and from the drawing select the first two sections of the channel L1. node L1. In the erase mode options. After editing the picture should be like: 20 .

That drawing is saved under name 03 Modified Network. 21 .dwg.

Start the command for calculation of terrain elevations (Workspace -> Input data (RC) -> Set terrain elevations). From Topology Selection Button select option Current system. Civil 3D 2009. it is visible that node labels show appropriate terrain elevations: 22 . already defined DTM should appear (the name of the surface which you defined with Civil 3D). Longitudinal sections Calculation of node terrain elevations When the basic network is defined it is possible to calculate terrain elevations in the manholes and draw longitudinal sections. Press the button Save. In the beginning of the tutorial we defined DTM with Civil 3D. Switch on option for Create additional points automatically. After that terrain elevations are calculated in all nodes/manholes of the network. beneath to DTM program. Dialog should look like: If zoom in to the drawing. From the top pop-down list select the option Using digital terrain model. There are several options to calculate terrain elevation. Calculation of terrain elevations will be based on defined DTM. To use appropriate DTM select from available options. In the pop down list.6.

we can see that all the nodes have terrain elevation.If we start the preview for the nodes. 0 Nodes Geometry (Workspace -> Previews -> Section Nodes -> 0 Nodes Geometry (DC) ). 23 .

Start the drawing of longitudinal sections by using predefined longitudinal section configuration Sewage 500/100 (Workspace ->Long Sections -> Sewage 500/100 (DC)). When configuration is started the following dialog appears: By using Topology Selection Button select Current system. All other option define as in previous picture.Drawing of longitudinal sections When network is defined and terrain elevations are calculated it is possible to draw longitudinal sections. as shown on next picture: 24 . Press the button Draw and choose appropriate position of longitudinal sections. Longitudinal sections should be drawn.

When mouse moves. Press button Draw and position the longitudinal section somewhere in the drawing.1) and move the mouse along the channel R1 to main channel (MAIN). program automatically calculates the defined path and shows it in the tooltip. pick on it and press Enter. open Topology Selection Button and select option From node to node. On the dialog of longitudinal section should be new record in the area of selected longitudinal sections. Then move the mouse to the end of main channel (MAIN) to the node MAIN. On the dialog for drawing of longitudinal sections. That assumption can be easily avoided if necessary.Longitudinal sections are drawn upon channel definition. When reach the last node of main channel.13. You will have the fifth longitudinal section which is little bit longer than previous ones. Select then the first node of channel R1 (R1. On bellow picture all the longitudinal sections are shown: 25 .

we can select appropriate sections from the drawing. Shift+Ctrl. If we are not sure for the name of section.). Use usual Windows keys to make multiple selections (Ctrl.13) and erase it with appropriate button. it is necessary to select longitudinal sections.Drawn longitudinal sections cannot be erased with the plain AutoCAD commands. with appropriate button (Button for selecting profiles). Select the last drawn section (R1. 26 . Start the command Workspace ->Tools (RC) -> Longitudinal section manager. It is possible to do it in a two ways. The first one is to pick in the list on specific longitudinal section(s).. The following dialog appears: First of all.1 – MAIN. For such purposes command for managing of longitudinal sections should be used. .. Ctrl-A. on the right side of dialog.

The drawing with longitudinal sections is saved under name 4 Longitudinal Sections. 27 .dwg.

Make Water active. Erase all the labels in the drawing (Labels (Network topology) (RC)-> Remove labels from drawing (label configuration stay intact) ). Change Lineweight for the same layer to thick one (0. In one moment only one system can be current. Be sure that Water system is active. 1. according to below picture: 28 . Now we will pass through procedure of defining water distribution system with all necessary parameters. the cyan polylines appears which show the position of water distribution pipe. and change color to blue color (5). we will make Sewage active. Switching between systems is made by popdown list on the top of the panel. If system Sewage is selected. Create new water distribution system. Click on the panel. Let’s make some changes in layer definition.7. Open AutoCAD layer control.3). in disk repository (below part of panel). When new system is created. Program creates new system. which is of red color. Intersection analysis Very often the line of new infrastructure should cross existing infrastructure of the same or different type. Of course. For example sewage pipe should be below the water pipe. Start command for converting of AutoCAD lines/polylines to network topology. to emphasize important issues. from the pop down list on the top. pipes cannot cross each other. First of all. Inside of layer dialog switch on the layer 1_water. For such kind of analysis Urbano software offers intersection analysis. on item System templates – Water. the new group of the layers is created. Erase thematic mapping if exists. Definition of the network. Right now the system Water is active and current. one for sewage and the second one for water distribution. Close the layer dialog. Close to drawn sewage system of red color. by RC on Theme mappings in the panel and select erasing (Theme mappings (RC)->Remove theme mappings (configuration stays intact)). please simplify existing drawing. We will analyze position of drawn sewage pipe with water distribution pipe. Urbano software can operate with multiple systems. You can see the new group of the layers which names start with Water_. Right now we have two systems. Select layer Water_AT_Sections_3. There are some rules which define necessary positions of different infrastructures. which will be used for water distribution. gas and sewage should be on enough distance and so on. For example new sewage pipe should be laid down below existing water or gas pipe. Press RC and select option Create system based on this template.

and from dialog which appears select the two cyan polylines (button Select drawing elements). After the operation the next picture is shown: 2. According to Civil 3D DTM created in chapter 2. From the panel start the definition of terrain elevations (Input data (RC) -> Set terrain 29 . Terrain elevation.Start command Conversion of AutoCAD elements. which are close to sewage system. terrain elevations in the nodes should be calculated.

elevation). From the dialog.2. and press button Save. Check the option for creating of additional points. It is usual that pipe depth of water distribution system is defined on constant value. From Topology selection button.2 m below terrain). Define Depth below terrain as 1. Pipe invert level. From Topology selection button select the current system and press the button Save. and surface Test. Dialog should look like: 30 . source of DTM should be Civil 3D 2010. Start the definition of the pipe invert from the panel (Input data (RC) -> Level line input). Define that level line position is upper outer point (that means that the highest point of pipeline is 1. The dialog should be like: 3. in the upper part select option Constant depth below terrain. select the current system. Input type should be Using digital terrain model.

without any calculation (let’s say that water distribution system already exists). From the panel start command for pipe definition Input data (RC) ->Set pipes.4. define one single diameter for the whole water network. All diameters are defined. Diameter definition. pipe group select W_PEHD_PE80_PN6. and for diameter select 90 mm (NO 90 – PEHD_PE80_PN6_90). The dialog should look like: 31 . Input type should be All. From Topology selection button select the Current system and press the button Save. We will simply.

Start the drawing of sections from the panel – Long Sections -> Water 500/100 (DC). draw the longitudinal sections for the whole water distribution network. terrain elevations from Civil 3D DTM. To check if all the data are correctly defined. we defined all important and necessary data for the water distribution systems. as shown on below picture: 32 .Through 4 steps. Start table views to check all the data or labeling to see values in the nodes and sections. All actions are always applied on current system. which are described. The geometry and topology is defined from AutoCAD polylines. pipe elevations are defined on constant depth and one diameter (90) is defined for the whole system. select the whole system and draw three channels in a one column right to already drawn sewage longitudinal sections.

Before definition of pipe invert of sewage system. Water pipes should be drawn on correct position (elevation. so when we would like to define sewage pipe invert. Make sewage system active.The whole idea of that example is to calculate crosses between sewage and water distribution system. we will have information about existing water pipes. we would like to have water pipes drawn in the longitudinal section of sewage system. To calculate intersections the appropriate command from the panel should be started. System which will be intersected is Sewage. station) in longitudinal sections. With that information we can successfully avoid clashes. Dialog for intersections appears. The dialog should look like: 33 . System which will intersect is Water (choose it from pop-down list). Intersection label will be 3 Intersection. Start the command Draw (RC) -> Draw intersection points.

When the button Draw is pressed. and label them with available data. The picture is like below: 34 . program calculates all intersections between two systems (sewage and water).

To emphasize the sewage system. That distance will be base for analyzing if infrastructures are crossed on correct distance. to make water system invisible. the label will show physical distance between pipes. Press the button of light bulb on the top of panel. the water system should be invisible. crossing water pipes are drawn. when sewage pipe is defined with pipe invert and diameter. as shown on below picture: The detail view of one pipe is shown on below picture Now we have conditions for effective definition of pipe invert level of sewage system. as shown on below picture 35 .Intersections are calculated on every cross between sewage (red color) and water (blue color). In the same moment in longitudinal sections of sewage. Label shows only terrain elevation on that position and difference between pipe invert of water and sewage. Later on. Because sewage pipe invert is still not defined Ld value basically shows only depth of pipe invert of water (top of the water pipe).

The drawing is saved under name 5 Intersections.dwg. 36 .Make the sewage system current (from pop down list on the top of the panel).

All the possibilities are available through the command. Draw level line in longitudinal sections. Selection can be done from pop-down list or by using button for interactive selection. any possible idealization of the pipe by one line is possible. select from upper pop-down list method of defining level line. Select option Depth below terrain. Pipe invert line can be defined in many ways. Bottom inner level line corresponds to pipe invert.8. Select the longitudinal section R1. by constant depth. or by setting elevation/depth. Pipe level line can be any point in cross section of the pipe as shown on below picture: Because Urbano should serve all pipe infrastructure objects. All the defined options are visible from the bellow picture: 37 . Definition of pipe invert In Urbano Canalis we use in the same time terms „pipe level line“ and „pipe invert“. When the command is started. After that from the bellow pop-down list select longitudinal section on which definition of level line should be made. It is possible to define it interactively. which can be found in Workspace ->Long Sections (RC)-> Draw level line in longitudinal sections .

With the button for interactive selection of longitudinal section.Level line can be selected. start the command for definition of pipe invert level in longitudinal section (Workspace ->Long Sections (RC)-> Draw level line in longitudinal sections). It is visible that pipe invert of sewage is below the water pipes. the real distance between sewage and water pipes can be inspected. Leave the limiting stations as they are. we will interactively define pipe invert level. just for one part of longitudinal section. from the beginning to the ending station. For the longitudinal section of the channel MAIN. In the dialog. Repeat the procedure of pipe invert definition on constant depth for the longitudinal section R3 (select profile R3 and apply level line definition on depth of 2 m by Draw). Zoom in longitudinal section R1 and see position of the sewage pipe invert concerning water pipes which cross the sewage pipe. The dialog should look like: 38 . from the begin to the end of the selected profile. Pick in the drawing area to see drawn level line. If the dialog is not active. from the top pop-down list select the option Interactive-2. Define the depth as 2 m. Later on when diameters will be calculated. select longitudinal section Main.

Program always „snap“ to the closest „vertical line“ – manhole/node. Slope is changed by the step of 5 ‰ (defined in dialog). Start the definition of the pipe invert by picking on the beginning of the longitudinal section ( station 0+00. Level line depth.00). Take care that position of invert is below the water pipes which are drawn in longitudinal section. 39 . node Main. and the second one maximum depth. Pick consecutively appropriate positions of the pipe invert. The first one is to indicate minimum depth. Slope ). the tooltip shows all relevant information ( Terrain elevation. two lines (parallels to terrain) can be shown. When defining the slope.1. Additionally.For the slope unit select the sign promile(‰). slope will be changed with the step of 5‰. When the line is dragged. Those lines do not put any restrictions. Level line elevation. just give information. to better define the vertical position of the pipe invert. until reach the end.

Repeat the procedure for the longitudinal section R2. After definition the picture is like below: 40 .

We will change the vertical position of some nodes. Pipe invert cannot be modified by using AutoCAD commands .Initial definition of pipe invert level can be modified if necessary. Through the command it is possible to delete part or whole level line. The simplest case is that neighboring nodes are “fixed” and that only middle node is moved ( case 1). there is question of fixed nodes. to insert cascade manholes. to straighten the level line (when level line is initially defined on constant depth below terrain. yellow and magenta vertical lines (A and C) are positioned on neighboring nodes to node which should be vertically moved (red line B). For editing of pipe invert in longitudinal sections. In the second case fixed 41 . to move nodes of level line and so on. From the upper pop down list select option Move level line node. When one node of level line is to be moved. it is usual to straighten some parts). question is how many nodes on the left and on the right will be moved together. But. Those two cases are shown on below picture: In case 1. also it is possible to move more than one node together with the move of one node (case 2). Node should be moved from the position p1 to position p2. Basically. there is special command ( Long sections (RC)-> Edit level line in longitudinal sections ). Start the command. There are lot actions which can be made with that command. Select longitudinal section MAIN.

as shown on below picture.nodes are moved more outer. the Main.7 is fixed.5 will not be changed. yellow and magenta lines should be carefully placed on appropriate node (A and C). according to distance to fixed nodes (A and C). We will try to move node Main.7 and Main. and neighboring nodes to node B will be moved also.6.5 and magenta on Main. define that left fixed node is Main. when you are still in the command.In the below part of dialog choose that you will define new depth of the node. Now. In that example we will define 3 m.6. 42 . and that you again would like to move node Main.7 . Define in the dialog or graphically by icon appropriate depth.7. You can see that depth of the nodes Main.5 and Main. In the command for editing of the nodes. Yellow line should be on Main.3. and define that fixed node are nodes Main. See the picture below: Press the Edit button to accomplish defined change. On the right side.

All the values are described on below picture: 43 .Press button Edit to make appropriate change.

The drawing is saved with the name 06 Pipe Invert Level. All the nodes are labeled with the appropriate label.dwg. Double click on the label configuration 2 Name Terrain Invert (Workspace -> Labels (Network topology) -> Nodes -> 2 Name Terrain Invert). Pipe invert levels (level line elevations) can be inspected through appropriate table views (Previews). it is possible to label in the layout pipe invert levels too. With the Topology selection button select current system and press key Show. we did choose the node label which has only values of terrain elevations and node names. 44 . the level line elevations of every section are shown. When pipe invert is defined. Start the table view 0 Section Geometry (Workspace -> Previews -> Sections -> 0 Section Geometry (DC)).When we initially defined the network in layout. In that table view.

From the top pop-up list select the option Rename – by arrays/branches. . MAIN.“ (MAIN. With Topology selection button select array/channel MAIN. layout and longitudinal sections. Start the command for editing nodes (Workspace>Editing (RC) -> Edit nodes).dwg. The result of that chapter can be compared with the drawing 6 Dynamic Model. 48 ... You can see that node names are changed in both views. In the later chapters we will do a lot changes which will show how complete dynamic model functions.1. Define in the list that prefix is consist of name of the array/channel and „.Now we will change the names of the nodes of channel MAIN.2. because it is occupied).

10. the system is treated as sanitary only. Definition of catchment areas In Urbano Canalis. If sanitary is missing. every pipe network is treated as mixed one. On the layer 2_Catchment_Areas there are lines which define the catchment areas for every channel/array in the drawing. and if storm flow is missing. Switch on the layer 2_Catchment_Areas. The both storm and sanitary flows can be defined in the same pipe. First of all. the system is pure storm (rain) system. the new workspace appears as shown on the next picture: 49 . From the Main Workspace it is necessary to activate button Canalis Workspace as shown on bellow picture: When this button is picked. we should activate special panel which is used for definition of catchment areas. calculating of storm and sanitary flows and hydraulic dimensioning. In this chapter we will define catchment areas for storm flow.

The next dialog appears: The definition of catchment area should start with selecting of elements of network which will have catchment area.Press the first button in the row. Use Topology Selection Button and 50 . Define catchment areas.

Switch on the option for identifying islands inside of main catchment main channel (MAIN) – the red one. After that press the button Catchment boundary layer to define on which layer(s) boundaries of catchment areas are defined. select layer 2_Catchment_Areas. If everything is well. from the popdown list with predefined material. Longer sections will have bigger part of common catchment area. The first one is based on AutoCAD boundary algorithm. according to lengths of the sections. and writes it into list of found areas. the option Area for multiple sections. but inside black boundary. + An) For the type of catchment area procedure select from the pop-down list Type of area calculation. That type of calculation means that we will define one bigger area for several sections in the one channel.. Use the button for picking inside boundaries. This option is very useful when one large area has „islands“ – polygons with completely different run-off coefficient.. when it is necessary just to pick inside of boundaries of catchment area. Repeat the procedure for the next two channels R1 and R2 (yellow and green one): • • • • with Topology Selection Button choose option array and select appropriate channel/array with Button for boundary pick close to channel. and program will. Select that area in the list and choose appropriate type of soil. The process of definition of catchment area for the main channel is finished. Program will calculate average run-off coefficient by next formula: Kavg=(A1 * k1 + A2 * k2 + . From the list which is opened. In that case program will find so called „main“ area and „islands“ area. but inside of defined area-s select appropriate type of the soil (leave the ground type) press button Save data to save the catchment area for specific channel 51 . and pick close to the channel MAIN. Select Ground with run off coefficient of 0. Press the button Save data. distribute the whole area to every section. program will find appropriate area.. The next option is used when boundary is created using closed AutoCAD polylines. There are two basic ways for catchment area definition.. Boundaries of catchment areas need not to be single closed entity (could be many lines).

9. Pick in the list on main area. that cannot be performed with plain AutoCAD functions.dwg. Erasing of defined catchment areas should be done by this command. 52 . After that select all islands (pick first island. Ctrl+Shift+Pick on last island). The next dialog shows: Try to hatch some selected areas. with run off coefficient 0.The procedure for the channel R3 is little bit different. When pick inside of defined area. be careful to pick inside main area but not inside of drawn islands. The drawing with defined catchment areas is saved with the name 7 Catchment Areas. select type of soil – Asphalt. define type of soil Ground and press button Save data. Close the dialog and start the command Catchment and waste flow area editor. For all of them at once. Program should recognize main area with 12 islands (in fact objects inside of main area). If something is incorrect and some areas should be erased.

the next dialog appears: 53 . Calculation of rain flow Calculation of rain flow could be performed basically in two ways. To make calculation of rain flows the catchment areas have to be defined.3684) Whatever of those two methods is chosen. In that tutorial we will use the simple method. The first one is simple calculation. These two coefficients are calculated based on the "n" factor. their value is taken as 1. The second one is based on rational method with using of IDF curves (Intensity Duration Frequency). the appropriate parameters necessary for calculation can be defined through the command Input coefficients and roughness.11. so called Common method and ATV method. The calculation according to ATV method is done according to the following formula: Q = I φ Kfl A where is I φ Kfl A rainfall intensity [l/s/ha] Zeit-Beiwert's time factor coefficient of flow catchment area [ha] Factor φ depends on ATV frequency n and ATV raining time T which must be define earlier with command and it is calculated according to the following formula: φ = 38 / (T+ 9) (1/ 4√n – 0. Common method is based on the next formula: Q= I A Kfl Kret Kred where values in the formula means: I A Kfl Kret Kred rainfall intensity [l/s/ha] catchment area [ha] coefficient of flow (runoff coefficient). If the coefficient of retardation and coefficient of reduction are not defined. simple calculation. ATV are German norms which are well known in the whole Central Europe. When started. based on 15 min constant rainfall. coefficient of retardation coefficient of reduction The program calculates section's own rain flow for the sections that has defined catchment area and coefficient of flow. From the panel ( Canalis Workspace) select the button Rain flow. With the command it is possible to calculate rain flow with two methods.

Here you can see the section's own flow. 150 and press the button Save data. the value is defined (on the example ATV frequency = 3. Select ATV method.Value of coefficients are defined in a way that appropriate coefficient(s) is checked. type in Rainfall intensity. Start the command for calculation of rain flow. Start the preview 1 Catchment and Rain Flow (Workspace -> Previews -> Sections -> 1 Catchment and Rain Flow). and button Save data is pressed. The drawing with calculated flows is saved with the name 08 Calculation of Rain Flow. Section's flows for the all pipes are calculated. simple calculation. To see calculated quantities firstly switch back to Main Workspace.dwg. 54 . the Current system is selected by using Topology Selection Button. Rain flow. ATV raining time T = 15).

Leave the value of 1. In the morning. We will use in this tutorial the second method. in Urbano Canalis every system is treated as mixed one. the consumption is bigger.. after certain time. Some days in a week (Saturday. If necessary switch to Canalis Workspace. Calculation can be focused on certain part of network and repeated as necessary times with different number of inhabitants for different areas – pipes. In the list of results software calculated projected number of inhabitants after 30 years and increase of 2%. total consumption of water per day is calculated and then at the end converted to quantity in liters per second per meter of system. calculation will be performed for fixed number of inhabitants. The real flow in every section is calculated with multiplying length of each section with specific demands (l/s/m). Algorithm is based on consumption of water of inhabitants. It is necessary to define next parameters: • • Consumption of water per inhabitants (l/day) – means how much water is consumed by inhabitants per day – type 150 Actual number of inhabitants – means how many inhabitants live in the area. Calculation of sanitary flows could be calculated in a two ways.. percent calculation. that coefficient should be defined. We will treat the whole area and define 1000 inhabitants Annual population increase – the whole calculation is going toward calculating of total consumed water. Coefficient of variation per day – to model peaks in consumption and consequently increasing quantity of sanitary water to be discharged.5 Coefficient of variation per hour – to model daily peaks. Calculation of sanitary flows As explained in the previous chapter. Leave the value of 1. Leave the value of 30 years. 55 . storm and sanitary flows. So in network pipes the both. If any of two flows is missing. value of variation is necessary to define. system is treated as separated one. If percent is set as 0 %. The first one is calculation based on influenced areas and the second one is based on length of the system and projected total water consumption. consumption is bigger comparing to other days. Leave the value of 2% Design period (years) – time in which system should be operational and usable in terms of quantity of water – projected number of inhabitants.5 • • • • Press the button Show temporary results.). with assumption that population will increase. . for example. Start the command Waste water. can be defined. That quantity is called specific demand.12. The percent of increasing (default = 2%) should be defined. For that number. Sunday.

accessible from Main Workspace.The dialog should look like: The calculated flows can be inspected through table views.dwg. Start the Main Workspace and start the table view 2 Total Flows. as shown on next picture: It is obvious that sanitary flows are significantly smaller than rain flows. 56 . The drawing is saved under name 10 Calculation of Sanitary Flows.

press the button Calculate transit flows. simple method. Total flow. Switch on two flows. The first one is for calculation of transit flows and the second one for calculation of total flows. and Ranifall flow calculation. Transit and total flows have to be calculated with the command Total and transit flows. Activate the second tab on dialog. which basically come from pipe's own flow with addition of transit flow from upstream sections. When the both flows are switched on. To calculate total flows switch back to Canalis Workspace and start again command Total and transit flows. To continue with design we have to calculate total flows in every pipe. Thanks to topology. Total section's own flow and Transit flow. From the table view it is visible that transit flows are calculated. calculation is performed. rain and sanitary. Close the command. Total flows can be seen from the same table view as previous: 57 .13. Calculation of total flows In the previous chapter we calculated the basic flows. switch to Main Workspace and start table view 2 Total flows. from Canalis Workspace. When the both flows are switched on. For calculation of transit flows switch on two flows. press the button Calculate total flow. The dialog has two tabs. Waste flow – percent calc. in which it is clear order of sections (which are upstream and which are downstream).

select the first section and zoom to it. The drawing in which all the flows are calculated is saved under name 11 Total Flows.You can sort the table view according to total flow. 58 . by simply clicking on the column name. It is obvious that the section with the biggest flow is last section of the network.dwg. If you do it.

Hydraulic calculation is based on Prandtl-Colebrook's formulas.e.1 and Main. Open Pipe catalogue button and select the group S0_PEHD_SN8. It is very easy to define your own pipe groups in catalog. Program is automatically positioned on the first section ( S1.. Urbano supports not only plain circular pipes. That data cannot be changed in this dialog. Roughness in mm (Kb) can be directly defined in the dialog. like elliptical pipe. i. calculate diameters.14. In Urbano software. egg pipe. fulfillment of pipe and velocity of flow. Viscosity of water can be changed but leave it as it is (1. but some pipes of special shape.. Calculation „Section by Section“ Start from Canalis Workspace command for hydraulic calculation. when we have slope of the section and its total flow. from Canalis Workspace. In Urbano Canalis it is possible to make hydraulic calculation when flow and diameter are known and slope should be calculated. rectangular pipe. The next dialog appears: With the Topology Selection Button. can come from pipe catalog or can be defined as data through command Input coefficients and roughness . choose option array and select the main channel. Hydraulic calculation We can make hydraulic calculation. 59 . between nodes Main. Program reads all previously defined data such as flow and slope. all the pipes which are available have to be defined in pipe catalogue.2). egg inverted pipe. .31 x 10 -6). hat profile pipe.

) in the list are recalculated. all dependent hydraulic values (velocity. Then the program analyze defined group of pipes and select the first bigger diameter in the group. To see all hydraulic values.. Switch to Main Workspace and start the table view 3 Hydraulic. For that diameter (in our example 138). filling height and other. Probably we will not be satisfied with that first diameter. Calculation „Group of Sections“ In the dialog of the command Hydraulic calculation. program calculates all hydraulic values like velocity.. appropriate table view can be started. . tab Section group has to be activated. We can open the pop-down list Diameters from catalogue and select some bigger diameter. Automatically. With the Pipe catalogue pop-down button select S0_PEHD_SN8 pipe group. which is necessary to satisfy conditions of defined flow and slope.Hydraulic calculation will calculate minimum diameter. The next dialog appears: With the Topology Selection Button select the option Current system. Define calculation with the conditions in which maximum filling percent cannot exceed 80% and minimum diameter cannot be less than 300 mm. in the left part of the dialog. filling height. and continue with the next section in the selection. Next section is set by arrow buttons. Start button Compute and hydraulic calculation is made for the whole system. When we are satisfied with the results. Table view should be similar to: 60 . we should press the button Save.

61 . Some downstream sections have smaller diameter than upstream sections. that those sections in automatic hydraulic calculation received smaller diameters. To see distribution of diameters in the network. is because of slope. When thematic mapping is performed. In your example situation can be different. start thematic map according to diameters. So this is reason. regardless bigger flow. First of all. the next picture appears: We can see the situation which is not completely correct. you can see that last sections has significantly bigger slope than upstream sections. We will explain how to solve such kind of problem. reason why this happened.It is visible that there is no pipe with diameter less than 300 and that filling percent is less than 80 % for all the pipes in the network. If you look in the longitudinal section of the main channel.

Select the group S0_PEHD_SN8 and pipe N0 450 – PEHD_SN8_450 (nominal diameter 450). Switch to Main Workspace and start the labeling through section label 3 Diameter Velocity Flow (Labels -> Sections -> 3 Diameter Velocity Flow). the labeling should be started. In the dialog select through AutoCAD selection last 8 sections. from connection with the channel R3. We should start hydraulic calculation again to recalculate hydraulic values. select from Topology Selection Button option Current system and switch on the option for calculation Regarding existing diameters. to the end of main channel (MAIN). Zoom in and inspect the labels. select the Current system with Topology Selection Button and label the whole system. 62 .> Set pipes). To show calculated values in the drawing. but hydraulic values stayed as before (appropriate to old diameters). Now we defined all diameters for sewage system. we will „manually“ define bigger diameter for the last 8 sections in the main channel. When dialog appears. Start again thematic mapping and the next picture should appear: We manually changed diameters. Switch to Canalis Workspace and start command for hydraulic calculation. Input type should be All. and intersection analysis can be repeated with the real results (both diameters from water and sewage system are defined).Regardless hydraulic calculation. activate tab for calculation of group of section ( Section group). When dialog appears. (Input data(RC) . Program will take existing diameters (among others those which are defined manually) and recalculate all hydraulic values. Start the command for input of pipes from the Main Workspace. and to define diameter press button Save.

We will simply recalculate intersections. and make it visible (bulb lamp should be on). Set the parameters according to below picture: Press the Draw button and inspect what program calculated and labeled. from the panel start the command for intersections (Draw (RC) -> Draw intersection points). System which will be intersected is Sewage. When sewage system is current.From the upper part of panel. switch to system Water. 63 . Switch again to sewage system. System which will intersect is Water.

From the pop-down list of operators choose operator „less“ (<). Query procedure is incorporated in Urbano software. from the group of Sewage – hydraulic data select the value Velocity in partially fulfilled pipe. Start creating of new query from Main Workspace (Queries (RC) -> New). For example we would like to see if there are sections with the velocity less than 1 m/s. It is possible to create any kind of query and to create set of elements which satisfy query conditions. there is lot of elements defined. The query definition dialog appears: Define the name of the query in the edit box for the name definition. NOT). When hydraulic calculation is performed. So. it is very useful to define various types of queries. Querying When designing of bigger network is an issue. Any query can be saved for later use. Conditions can be connected and joined with different operators (AND. In the example we will create one query. With the Data Picker. which can help in searching of network system. it is very important to see what are minimum velocities in the system. In edit box for limiting value type 1 (stands for 1 m/s). Some of data could be very important for functioning of the system.15. 64 . Conditions can be both attribute and spatial. All of them have many data. OR. Press button ADD to add defined condition to the list. DC on that value. Define it as Velocity less than 1. to transfer that value to the right part of dialog.

where only sections which satisfy the condition are shown. Take the query and drag it to the style definition Yellow Thick. If you drag and drop query definition to any table view definition. Table view of all network sections will appear with the hydraulic values. and change the value from No to Yes. With that functionality it is possible to create one query condition with different values. which sometimes could be very useful 65 . For example type 1. Defined query can be used in variety of ways and in different procedures. Again drag defined query and drop it to section style Yellow Thick. In the example only three sections have velocity less than 1 m/s. The best way is to use it with „drag and drop“ procedure. appropriate table view will be started and will show only elements which satisfy set condition (same with labeling).From the list of table views. Now. sections which satisfy the query condition become yellow (definition of style).5 instead of 1 which was initially defined. Results of query are shown in the table views. In the grid of dialog where condition is defined. In that dialog new value can be defined. pick on value Dynamic entry. the new dialog appears. select table view 3 Hydraulic. Press the „ StormLight“ button and start the query. Just save with OK the changed configuration. Defined query appears in the Main Workspace. Press button OK to save the query and to exit. Erase the style applied in the drawing ( Styles (RC) -> Remove styles from drawing (style configurations stay intact)) Now edit the defined query (pick on query Velocity less than 1 (RC) > Edit). because we set that condition value is dynamic. After picking in the screen.

The drawing with queries defined is saved under name 13 Query.dwg. 66 .

Nodes are basically AutoCAD blocks and pipes are AutoCAD lines. According to initial procedure you did copy examples of all catalogs. During the network definition. If you start manhole catalog by picking on Catalog button. All types of manholes are stored in manhole catalog.16. One of the basic topology rules is that section has to have node at the beginning and at the end. we draw pipes and nodes. Definition of manholes/structures When we created the network. network topology is automatically created. But we do not define at all any function or manhole type. and selecting Manhole catalog the next dialog will appear: When select the Manhole catalog. the next dialog appears: 67 .

In Urbano 7 all the definition of elements (pipes.) are defined in the same dialog with very similar user interface. If any definition is used in the drawing 68 . In the right part of dialog (Parameters for selected types .. From the pop-down list of possible manhole types select appropriate one.) define appropriate values. The picture with appropriate type will appear. If it is necessary repeat the procedure of creating new groups and new items in the groups. by following the next procedure: 1.You can create your own group of manholes. select in the list certain type and press Info button.. All definitions are stored in catalogs on disk ( XML files in installation folder). Change the name of the new item and modify dimensions. When any dimension is selected in the list. 4. based on 8 offered types. The Create new group button becomes accessible (or RC and Add new group). Pick on Create of new item button (or RC and Add new item) and type the name of first item in the group (Manhole_1). Create additional item in the group by using button to create new item as copy of previous one.. . 3. Be careful. My Manhole Group. trenches. all dimensions are in meters.. Pick on it and define the new group with the name ( My Manhole Group) 2. To properly select. Pick on newly created group. the value is shown in the picture with different color.
