As the use of computers continues to increase within the engineering profession, hydraulic computer models are used to simulate major interceptors and sometimes the entire sewer system. The use of a hydraulic model allow engineers to quickly and economically evaluate the capacity of an existing sanitary sewer system as well as the impacts of future development within the community on the sanitary sewer system. However, many different hydraulic computer models are currently being used within the engineering profession and the results from these models can be quite different. This paper will present the hydraulic results of the two different hydraulic models used in the Racine analysis and discuss their differences.
