Select Node Pressure from the Browser’s Map page and observe how
pressure values at the nodes become color-coded.
To make our network more realistic for analyzing an extended period of operation we
will create a Time Pattern that makes demands at the nodes vary in a periodic way
over the course of a day. For this simple example we will use a pattern time step of 6
hours thus making demands change at four different times of the day.
We set the pattern time step by selecting Options-Times from the Data
Browser, clicking the Browser’s Edit button to make the Property Editor appear (if its
not already visible), and entering 6 for the value of the Pattern Time Step (as shown
in Figure 2.8 below).
