Unlocking the Synergy of Ruby and SQL Scripting inside ICM: Streamlining InfoWorks and SWMM Network Management with a Deep Dive into Data Structures

No alt text provided for this image

The Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) and InfoWorks networks share a common user experience (UX); similar data structures, output files, UX tools, and Ruby and SQL scripting mean that both systems have been designed with a focus on user-friendliness and interoperability. This facilitates the learning curve and overall productivity for … Read the rest

Maintain the Force Mains at full capacity with a diameter-depth ratio (d/D) of 1 when the pumps turn On

A challenging issue in modeling and managing sewer force mains using the SWMM 5 system. The crux of the problem is maintaining the force main at full capacity with a diameter-depth ratio (d/D) of 1 when the pumps turn on.

The SWMM 5 system uses one flow point in the … Read the rest

How to Use Tracer Water Quality for RDII, DWF, and Runoff in an InfoWorks ICM Network – Use SWMM5 Washoff

The integration of ICM SWMM into the ICM platform has brought with it the inclusion of the SWMM5 Buildup Washoff feature. This allows users to analyze the impact of tracer concentrations on a 1D network, specifically in determining the percentage contribution of real-time kinematic (RTK) urban hydrology or runoff to … Read the rest

Conversion of InfoSWMM models to both ICM SWMM and ICM InfoWorks Networks

Conversion of InfoSWMM models to both ICM SWMM and ICM InfoWorks Networks.

I will show you how in a short 3-minute video with captions. It is very straightforward and well-designed and allows you to model SWMM5 Networks using SQL, Grids, Reports, Graphs, Themes, Modeling Objects, Data Flags, and Ruby Scripts.… Read the rest

Junction DWF in SWMM5, InfoSWMM and ICM SWMM Networks

Junction Dry Weather Flow (DWF)

The Junction Dry Weather Flow (DWF) data table stores information regarding the dry weather load (e.g., sanitary loads) entering the collection system at the junction node. Refer to the section on the inflow editor for more information on these input data. The following table shows Read the rest
