The SWMM5 engine uses mean flow as the dry weather flow value (DWF) and not population but does allow weekday, weekend, daily and monthly patterns. You can use these many pattern options to actually use population in the SWMM5 and InfoSWMM dry weather flow tables. Here are the steps as … Read the rest
The Operation tab allows the user to control project settings relating to the management of various InfoSWMM SA operations. It should be noted that all the changes made on the Preferences dialog box must be saved prior to closing the dialog box. Many preferences set with this … Read the rest
Runoff coefficient is loosely defined as the ratio of runoff to rainfall, and is a function of watershed characteristics including land use, soil type, and slope of the watershed. The value of runoff coefficient ranges between 0.0 and 1.0. A value of 0.0 means that all of the … Read the rest
This example demonstrates how to simulate pollutant buildup and washoff in an urban catchment. The influence of different land uses on pollutant buildup is considered and both Event Mean Concentrations (EMCs) and exponential functions are used to represent the washoff process.
Scenario Explorer – Facility Tab in InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA
The facility set defines those network components (e.g., conduits, Subcatchments, pumps, junctions, etc.) that will be considered during the next InfoSWMM H2OMap SWMM InfoSWMM SAsimulation. The facility set may include the entire network model or a subset of network components. … Read the rest
SWMM 5 Loss Term Values for various velocities and K values
SWMM 5 has three loss terms available for each link: Entrance, Exit and Other losses. The Entrance loss uses the upstream link velocity, the Other loss uses the center link velocity and the Exit loss uses the downstream link … Read the rest
A quick note: A really nice feature of the way #SWMM5 models water quality is the easy ability to model tracers for the contribution of the major processes. You can set up a concentration of 100 (for example) for DWF, RDII Flow, Runoff and Groundwater to find the percentage contribution … Read the rest
One of the most powerful InfoSWMM, InfoSWMM SA and H2OMAP SWMM Application Tools from Innovyze is RDII Analyst. RDII Analyst will separate out the Groundwater base flow, Dry Weather Flow (DWF), DWF Patterns, estimate the Wet Weather flow component or RDII Rainfall -Derived Infiltration Inflow (I&I) and use a Genetic … Read the rest

How to See the Highest Continuity Errors Table in the Output Report Manager
In the output text report file of InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA there is the Highest Node Continuity Error Table. The Table shows the highest 20 Nodes for percent node continuity errors and the actual continuity error as
The Dynamic Wave page of the Simulation Options dialog, shown below, sets several parameters that control how the dynamic wave flow routing computations are made. These parameters have no effect for the other flow routing methods.
Contents of this simulation option dialog page are described below:… Read the rest
Importing Diameters into #H2OMAP SWMM and #InfoSWMM
The current option for showing closed conduit diameters in both H2OMAP SWMM and InfoSWMM is controlled by the Tools/Preferences dialog option Sewer Interface (Figure 1). The diameter for the closed conduits is shown in feet or meters in the DB table (Figure 2) … Read the rest
The Junction inlet data table stores information regarding the inlet at the junction node. Refer to the section on inflow editor for more information on these input data. The following table shows the whole first row of the DB Table on separate rows in the image.
In this blog we example the St Venant terms used in SWMM5 as equations, table, graphs and units. We use a QA/QC version of SWMM 5 that lists many more link, node, system and Subcatchment variables than the default SWMM 5 GUI and engine. This also applies to #InfoSWMM
SWMM 5 uses the method of Successive under-relaxation to solve the Node Continuity Equation and the Link Momentum/Continuity Equation for a time step. The dynamic wave solution in dynwave.c will use up to 8 … Read the rest
