'SULF. BAS' is a Basic language computer model which predicts sulfide buildup and corrosion protection required in a sanitary sewer system. The prediction is based on the R. D. Pomeroy-Parkhurst model equations given in ASCE Manual of Practice No. 60, 'Design and Construction of Gravity Sanitary Sewers' (WPCF MOP No. FD-5). Full pipe sulfide calculations in force mains and inverted siphons are performed using the EPA Manual force main equation. The program provides various options, including constant or variable quantity or depth of flow, incremental life analysis to account for variable flow quantities or depths during the sewer life, and will take into account the effect of input sulfides at junctions. Several design examples illustrating the various input options are included.
