A feature I have always loved in XPSWMM (current version is XPSWMM 2018) is the Organized Output Files for Runoff and Hydraulics in XPSWMM. XPSWMM is based on SWMM 4.+ with features from SWMM 4.4 and SWMM5 along with additions by Innovyze/XP Solution over the years. The tables in my … Read the rest
InfoSWMM SA Model Explorer – Attribute Browser (AB)
The Attribute Browser (AB) provides you with tools to view, modify and alter data pertaining to any one InfoSWMM SA element such as a pipe, junction, valve, pump, tank and/or a reservoir. It provides also a quick means to inspect output data … Read the rest
Time Patterns allow external Dry Weather Flow (DWF) to vary in a periodic fashion. They consist of a set of adjustment factors applied as multipliers to a baseline DWF flow rate or pollutant concentration. The different types of time patterns include:
Real-Time Control (RTC) Rule Editor in InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA
InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA offers an advanced RTC rule that could be used to effectively simulate the operation of pumps and flow regulating structures such as weirs, orifices, and outlets. Unlike Simple Controls, RTC rules allow for the creation … Read the rest
Operational control rules determine how pumps and flow regulating structures (i.e., orifice and weir) in the conveyance system will be adjusted over the course of a simulation. InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA has the following three control classes.
Once the model has been successfully simulated using the Run Manager, you can review the 2D simulation output. You can review the output by creating any of three types of output objects. The following output objects are available:
2.2 Understanding the 2D Mesh (Zone) in InfoSWMM 2D
The 2D zone, alternatively described as a mesh, consists of a series of contiguous triangles, whose shared boundaries cover the catchment surface. The height of each point on each triangle is derived from a ground model GRID or TIN.
2.1 Understanding the 1D/2D Connection in InfoSWMM 2D
The 2D Output HTML file of InfoSWMM 2D shows the Total 2D Inflows at each node by Mesh ID. You can either graph, report use the 2D Graphs in InfoSWMM to also see these flows but in addition there is a Section … Read the rest
