    Default How do I Calc Pipe Capacity?

    Does Civil 3D have an easy way to calculate the capacity of a pipe? I haven't delved into pipe networks yet and I don't want to right now. I just want to know the capacity of an 18" RCP flowing full at a 1% slope. Land Desktop had a command that made it easy but I can't find anything like it in Civil 3D.

    I tried to write a Lisp program but realized that I could do it much easier in Excel. Problem solved. If anyone would like the spreadsheet, you can email me at and I'll send it to you. In the mean time, I'm going to post this on the wish list.

    Or you could use this method, straight from the Civil3D help file.
