Subject:  How to Import the SWMM 5 Report File as a Layer in infoSWMM

 

The idea of this blog of note is to show how one may extract information from the SWMM 5 or InfoSWMM RPT file and import the Excel  File as a feature in InfoSWMM.  This blog has an example Excel file to illustrate the linkage. The steps are:

 

Step 1:  Copy the whole row  from Conduit Summary from the InfoSWMM Browser

Step 2:  Add the two columns length and  slope from the Link Summary Table and the InfoSWMM Browser

Step 3:  You need a few calculations based on the table values from SWMM 5 to estimate the CFL  time steps in the .

Step 4:   Add the Excel Spreadsheet as a layer in InfoSWMM – the Named Range should be added to insure valid numbers and not Nulls after the join

Step 5:  You can now plot the CFL Time Step for the Links using the Layer Properties command in Arc Map

  

Step 1:  Copy the whole row  from Conduit Summary

 

 

Step 2:  Add the two columns length and  slope from the Link Summary Table

 

 

 

Step 3:  You need a few calculations based on the table values from SWMM 5 to estimate the CFL  time steps.

 

The CFL Step      = Length / (Full  Velocity + (Gravity * Full Depth)^0.5)

Full Velocity        = Full Flow / Full  Area

 

You also need to create a Name A Range for you data so that the data does not show up as Nulls

 

 

 

Step 4:  Add the Excel Spreadsheet as a layer in InfoSWMM – the Named Range should be added

 

 

 

Step 4:  Join the Excel  Table to the InfoSWMM Conduit Feature Layer

 

 

Step 5:  You can now plot the CFL Time Step for the Links using the Layer Properties command in Arc Map
