Hydraulic Modeling & VDC

Our Experts

Computational Modeling can solve hydraulic and water quality equations for complex conveyance networks rapidly and accurately. Hydraulic models are powerful tools that engineers can use to investigate current system conditions, simulate future improvements, develop operational changes, and create capital improvement plans with optimal sequencing. R2T’s modeling team boasts a wealth of experience in hydraulic modeling. Beyond just the basics of capacity analysis, R2T can assist you in analyzing every aspect of a collection or distribution system. From targeting sewer inflows to SSO reduction to customer demand forecasts and distribution emergency management, we will leverage emerging technology to advance every aspect of your infrastructure.

Virtual Design Construction (VDC) is an innovative way to approach infrastructure projects. R2T has the capability to utilize integrated building information modeling (BIM) throughout the entire life cycle of a project, developing and tracking actual progress against expected results. The digital assets developed during the planning, design, and construction of the project can then be carried into operations ensuring the infrastructure assets are performing efficiently and effectively. R2T has the in-house capacity to utilize VDC at various phases of your project.

Areas of Expertise

Water Distribution

Simulations of hydraulic and water quality behavior within pressurized pipe networks, consisting of pipes, junctions, pumps, valves, storage tanks, and reservoirs, can be used to track the flow of water in each pipe, system pressures and tank levels, chemical constituents, water age, and source tracing throughout the network. R2T has built, calibrated, and implemented some of the largest and most complex piping in the country, and we stand ready to assist you with your network.

Wastewater Collection

Collecting and conveying wastewater flow to a treatment plant in a reliable, economic, and compliant way is a challenging risk management exercise. R2T can model your system to help you understand your network’s choke points, identify problems, and choose the best course of action by leveraging tools that deliver proven excellence in hydraulic system analysis and design.

Stormwater Management Modeling

R2T has built a body of experience designing stormwater features in challenging environments which unite green infrastructure with pedestrian traffic and the constraints of aesthetics in the modern built environment. We use the Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) to fast-track hydraulic calculations and find ways for our clients to thread a needle, maintaining compliance with stormwater regulations while minimizing financial investment and saving space for human uses.

Plant hydraulics

Treatment plant modeling can assist with problematic telemetry readings, a lack of definitive piping inventory, and flow distribution that does not match design. R2T’s modeling team has experience compiling SCADA data and field measurements to compare hydraulic simulations of what “should be” to what “is,” tracking down limitations to plant hydraulic capacity driven by subsurface infrastructure that outdates most plant operation staff.
