Figure 21  General 03 – Gravity Flow to Three Outlet Points

Gravity Distribution to 3 outlet spray positions each at 3.5 ft elevation, supplied from a tank at 8 ft elevation with 6 ft liquid level. All other nodes are at 0ft elevation.

Click the Calculate button to solve the system and display the flow rates on the drawing. Once solved, use the mouse to hover over a pipe, a node, or a component, to display the calculated results in a pop-up pane.

If the flow to node N9 is lower than is required then switching back to 'Design Mode' would allow the diameter of pipes P7 and P8 to be increased and the system could then be re-solved to see what effect this has on the flow at node N9.
