Chapter 13Pipe Networks

In this chapter, you'll look at two different types of pipe systems used in Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® installations. Pipe networks refer to the gravity-based object type in Civil 3D that works best for sewer systems. Pressure networks are a separate object type that works best for systems such as water and gas.

First, you will take an in-depth look at pipe networks. In the latter part of this chapter, you'll learn about pressure networks.

In this chapter, you will learn to:
