There might be times where users might need to create an S-bend pipe in their water reticulation design. In MiTS, it requires a simple modelling technique to design the S-bend pipes.
Follow step by step below;
You can refer to the example in our project file here.
- For now, what you have is just one long pipe which you wanted to create an s-bend pipe at a certain stretch. As for our example, we would like to create an S-bend pipe at pipe 2.
- Now, we will first need to delete pipe 2. To do so you can go to;
Pipe > Select the pipe you want to delete at the spread input table > Click on “-” button
- Next, what you have to do is to create two new nodes. To do so, go to;
Input > Node > Click anywhere in the input screen where you would like to locate your new node
- Next, you can adjust your node location under the spread input table. You can go to;
Input > Node > Spread Input table > “Location” column > Adjust the X and Y value
For this example, we will adjust node 5 and node 6 to a new location as follow;
- Next, we will connect the pipe from node to node. To do so, go to;
Input > Pipe > Click on the first node > Click on the second node
- Now, we have successfully created an S-bend pipe in 2D view. When we view our S-bend pipe in 3D view, it does not seem to be like a perfect S-bend pipe yet. This is because we will need to adjust our Invert Level (IL).
- To adjust the IL for the pipe you can go to;
Input > Pipe > Adjust the IL at the spread input table
- Now, you have successfully created an S-bend pipe.
