StormTech chambers have been incorporated into several stormwater modeling software packages. This allows the design engineer to easily and accurately model the StormTech chambers.
Modeling StormTech Chambers
In most software StormTech chambers are modeled similar to ponds. A stage volume or stage area is input into the software. Most software systems have an input field that allows for entering elevations and volume (incremental or cumulative). The data obtained from the StormTech stage storage spreadsheet are input in these fields.
The spreadsheet below can be downloaded and modified for the specific site by inputting the chamber model, number of chambers, amounts of stone, and elevation of the system highlighted in blue at the top of the page.
Modeling StormTech Chambers in HydroCAD
StormTech chambers can be easily modeled with the HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling System. The HydroCAD chamber wizard includes the full line of StormTech chambers, including the end caps for our larger MC series chambers, which provide significant additional storage volume. The HydroCAD wizard performs automated chamber system layout, and simplifies the process of designing a chamber system meeting specific storage and footprint requirements. Click here for details. For complex irregular shaped beds, see StormTech Tech Sheet 7.
