Changes that affect results
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Submerged Pump modeled junctions from being exported to EPANET.
  • Added the capability to copy Warnings and Design Alerts from the Output Primary Window.
  • Added junction name to the Design Alert report in the Output.
  • Fixed a bug where using Undo or Redo on deleted/disconnected pipes could cause nearby junctions to lose values for pipe elevation, r/D, and entry/exit K-factors to default to 0 instead of their original value.
  • Fixed a problem with Sprays using Resistance curves and a density correction.
  • Fixed a problem using Pressure Drop Friction as a Goal in GSC where 0 would always be returned and no solution could be found.
