Hydraulics and Hydrology Feature Overview

AutoCAD Civil 3D includes additional software applications that allow you to perform a variety of storm water
management tasks, including storm sewer design, watershed analysis, detention pond modeling, and culvert, channel,
and inlet analysis.
External applications can be used to add hydraulics and hydrology property information to AutoCAD Civil 3D pipe
networks. It is also possible to add hydraulics and hydrology property information directly to AutoCAD Civil 3D pipe
networks using the Pipe Network Vista (Panorama window). For more information, see Adding Hydraulic Property Data to
AutoCAD Civil 3D Pipe Networks.
For more information about using hydraulics and hydrology features with AutoCAD Civil 3D, see Using Hydraulics and
Hydrology Features.
The applications are typically installed by default when you install AutoCAD Civil 3D. If you chose not to install them
when you first installed AutoCAD Civil 3D, they can be installed later using Add or Remove Programs from the Control
Panel.
Once installed, you can access the applications from the ribbon, or by typing commands into the command line. For
more information, see Opening a Drawing for Edit in Storm and Sanitary Analysis and Launching the Hydraflow Extensions.
The following table describes the hydraulics and hydrology extensions available with AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Application Description
Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis
AutodeskStorm and Sanitary Analysis is a comprehensive
hydrology and hydraulic analysis application. It helps you plan and
design urban drainage systems, storm sewers (including highway
drainage systems), and sanitary sewers.
Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis integrates stormwater and
wastewater analysis during planning and design, which helps you
improve overall project productivity and increase your engineering
capabilities.
For more information, see Opening a Drawing for Edit in Storm and
Sanitary Analysis.
Hydraflow Storm Sewers Extension Enables you to perform storm sewer design and analysis on pipe
network models. It is designed primarily for hydraulic and hydrologic
analysis of simple and complex storm sewer networks with pavement
drainage and inlet analysis. It can also be used as to determine the
hydraulic grade line in an existing system, or for planning or
designing new systems. Using Storm Sewers, you can add hydraulic
information, such as hydraulic grade lines and energy grade lines, to
AutoCAD Civil 3D pipe network models. For more information, see
Moving Pipe Network Data Between AutoCAD Civil 3D and Storm Sewers
and Adding Hydraulic Property Data to AutoCAD Civil 3D Pipe Networks.
Hydraflow Hydrographs Extension Used for detention pond design and modeling of simple or complex
watersheds using the SCS and/or Rational methods. This extension
lets you perform a host of functions, including hydrograph combining,
channel reach and pond routing, and hydrograph diverting.

Hydraflow Express Extension Provides a collection of calculators for solving hydraulics and
hydrology tasks on culverts, channels, inlets, hydrology, and weirs.
You can model and design culverts with circular, box, elliptical, and
arch shapes; compute normal-depth rating curves for rectangular,
trapezoidal, triangular, compound gutter, circular, and user-defined
channel shapes. You can also calculate hydraulics for six inlet types,
including curb, grate, combination, drop curb, drop grate, and slotted.
This extension supports SCS, Rational, and Modified Rational
methods for computing a single hydrograph.

Analysis.
