Merge Dialog

This is used to set up the options used when merging a section of the network.

The dialog is displayed by clicking the Define button in the Merge box on the Network Simplification Page of the Simplification Options Dialog.

See Merging for more details on using the dialog.

The dialog consists of two pages:

Include Page

The storage in a merged section of the network is potentially lost from the model during the process.

Use the Include Page to define what forms of potentially lost storage are applied to nearby nodes as storage compensation.

One of the options - Manhole Additional Areas - allows you to transfer additional storage compensation already applied to the pruned or merged manholes so that this is not lost to the system.

Distribution Page

The Distribution Page allows you to adjust the allocation of additional storage volume generated from merging.

Additional storage can be allocated to the nearest upstream or downstream manhole, or split between the two in any proportion. Additional storage can be split between the manhole chamber and shaft in any proportion.

For more details on how to use these options, see Choosing Where to Apply Additional Storage.
