Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


UNET is a PC-based dynamic wave, unsteady flow model for the solution of the full network problem. The program applies a linearized implicit finite difference scheme to solve the full unsteady flow equations. UNET uses modified HEC-2 format for specifying system geometry, can use the HECDSS database for input and output data storage, and uses graphics for its primary mode of output. It is currently being applied to the largest known network in the U.S.
