Node[j].fullVolume at zero ?

Hi,

I'm working on a swmm interface and I'm trying to retrieve volume data at nodes from the shared library.

However, it seems that Node[j].fullVolume and  any other node volume information is always zero (should be different for storage, though):

node_setParams() sets Node[j].fullVolume to zero

node_getVolume() calculate the volume as a function of fullVolume and water depth.

Since fullVolume is zero, volume is zero as well.

Is this a wanted behaviour?

Is it a good idea to modify node_getVolume() to  calculate the volume as a function of MinSurfArea?

  • Node full volume is always zero, if you want to get the actual volume (which is the node surface area + 1/2 of the connecting links) then you should use the node surface area * the node depth.
