Hello, at about 6+30 in the scenario we start the first waste water dump. My tank at the start of the dump was only at 0.50, but I went ahead and started dumping. After 40 minutes the tank is at 0.40.

I read Miriam's Apollo 12- Experiences, Odds & Ends thread where a similar issue was discussed. The solution involved changing the dump valve size from 0.001 to 0.050. But if I'm looking in the correct area (WASTEH2OTANK) the VALVE OUT is already set to 0.050. Am I looking in the wrong place?

For reference, I started the simulation using the "Apollo 10- 01 - Before Launch T-20 min" scenario.

Thank you

This is a known issue and needs to be tweaked in many places other than just the valve outlet. However if you are using a pre save, it likely doesnt have the outlet valve set to 0.050 because those sizes get saved to the scn file at launch. You can create a save from that scn and edit the side in the scn file if you wish.

I'm not clear on where in my save I would edit this, I've looked around and nothing as glaringly obvious as "WASTEH2ODUMPVALVE" jumps out at me. Could you tell me what line in the saved .scn I would change? Thank you.

<TANK> WASTEH2OTANK 25.400000 1 0 0 0 0.00100000 0.00100000 0.00100000 0.00100000

Should be

<TANK> WASTEH2OTANK 25.400000 1 0 0 0 0.05000000 0.05000000 0.00100000 0.00100000
