How to create S-bend Pipe?

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

  1. 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

  1. 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;

NodeXY
52,216,880.8925,312,570.568
62,216,879.8685,312,572.685
Note: You can always adjust the location of X and Y even after you have input the pipe

  1. 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 

  1. 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).

  1. To adjust the IL for the pipe you can go to;
    Input > Pipe > Adjust the IL at the spread input table

  1. Now, you have successfully created an S-bend pipe.
