Batch Run Manager and Run Manager in InfoSewer SA

Batch Run Manager and Run Manager in InfoSewer SA

The Run Manager is used to perform simulations and to manage simulation output sources (results). Three individual simulation types are available from the Run Manager: Steady-State , Design, and Extended Period Simulation/Dynamic simulation (including quality analyses). You may also use the … Read the rest

Head loss due to Transitions and Fittings (Local loss) for InfoSWMM and SWMM5

Head loss due to Transitions and Fittings (Local loss)

Whenever flow velocity changes direction or magnitude in a conduit (e.g., at fittings, bends, and other appurtenances) added turbulence is induced. The energy associated with that turbulence is eventually dissipated into heat that produces a minor head loss, or local (or … Read the rest

Extended Period Dynamic Simulation (Unsteady Flow) in InfoSewer SA

Extended Period Dynamic Simulation (Unsteady Flow)

InfoSewer SA tracks the movement of wastewater flowing through the network over an extended period of time under varying wastewater loading and operating conditions. The extended period simulation (EPS) model implemented in InfoSewer SA is a fully dynamic (unsteady) model and is predicated on … Read the rest

Water Quality and Sediment Parameters in InfoWorks_ICM

Water Quality and Sediment Parameters

The Water Quality Simulation Parameters govern how the engine performs the additional water quality calculations during a simulation.

It is not normally necessary to amend the Water Quality Simulation Parameters. The default values have been chosen for optimum accuracy and performance. However, these parameters can … Read the rest

Calibration Functions for the InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA Calibrator

Calibration Functions for the InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA Calibrator

When calibrating a Stormwater management model, the goal is to determine the best set of InfoSWMM model parameters which produces the lowest overall deviation between the numerically simulated model results and the observed field data at user specified locations in the … Read the rest

LID Results – Summary Report for InfoSWMM and SWMM5

LID Results – Summary Report

The performance of the LID controls placed in a Subcatchment is reflected in the overall runoff, infiltration, and evaporation rates computed for the Subcatchment as normally reported by SWMM5. The SWMM’s Output Modeling Report also contains a section entitled LID Performance Summary that provides an … Read the rest
