Once a drainage conduit has been designed - either a pipe
or channel - you can route the Inflow hydrograph through a reach
of specified length to obtain the Outflow hydrograph at the
For each conduit design MIDUSS adjusts the time step and
reach length to acceptable sub-multiples in order to ensure
numerical stability in the routing process. You are advised of these
changes but need not take any action.
The result of the routing operation is displayed in both graphical
and tabular form.
When an outflow hydrograph has been created by some routing
operation you may choose from two possible courses of action.
Either the outflow can be copied to the inflow array in order to
continue to the next downstream link, or the outflow may be stored
at a junction node to be combined with other flows at a confluence
