New Features in Innovyze SWMM 14.6 Update 1

New Features in Innovyze SWMM 14.6 Update 1 Added missing conduit type to RTC tables in DB Editor.Added the ability to use H2S in the SWMM5 Treatment Equations even though H2S is an internal variable in InfoSWMMFixed an issue about importing OUTLET Link Tabular/Head features into InfoSWMM SA. It now imports correctly.Fixed an issue with evaporation being used with SCS Hydrology in the InfoSWMM SA Engine. Now, runoff, infiltration and evaporation are all part of the Runoff Summary.Fixed run with exact value for RDII AnalystSkipped the locking files for cache DB sync.Updated copyright year to 2018.Introduce new cache DB mechanism.A fix to the Node Treatment Equation and a fix to the Link Loading Tables. You can now use _H2S to have additional treatment equations for H2S modeling.Fixed the issue that stored graphs gets reset and the issue of empty combo box.A fix to the SWMM5 import for InfoSWMM to allow routing time steps less than 1 second. You cannot use time steps to 0.001 seconds.Add…

How to Extract the Engine SWMM5 Calculated Slope in InfoSWMM

Image
How to Extract the Engine SWMM5 Calculated Slope in InfoSWMM.   The slope is a calculated value in SWMM5. 
Please see this other blog for the slope calculations in SWMM5 https://swmm5.org/2011/01/20/swmm-5-slope-rules-2/
Step 1 – Run the model Step 2 –  Load the Conduit Summary Table Step 3 – The slope for an individual link is shown in the Attribute Browser in the Output section (slope is a fraction) Step 4  - Copy the slope (percent slope) from the Conduit Summary Table to the Conduit Information Table Step 5  - The slope can now be used outside of the SWMM5 engine to find adverse slopes.

How to fix depth vs elevation offset issues in links using InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA

Image
Issue background:  You have offsets as depth instead of elevation in your SWMM5 model. 
Here is how you fix this: Go to Project preferences and turn on Store Absolute Conduit InvertYou offsets will now be elevations but will be off by a factor of 2Now, go to the Conduit DB Table and using the Block Edit tool divide the offsets by 2,

SWMM 5.1 Update History up to SWMM 5.1.013

SWMM 5.1 Update History =======================
New SWMM 5.1.013 is now available http://t.co/v8QVy5c3UI
------------------------ Build 5.1.013 (05/10/18) ------------------------
Engine Updates:
1.  A subcatchment's depression storage depth, its pervious surface roughness     (Mannings n) and its hydraulic conductivity can now be adjusted on a     monthly basis by assigning monthly time patterns to these properties.     For conductivity, a subcatchment-specific adjustment pattern will     override any project-wide set of climate adjustment factors.
2.  LID controls can now treat a designated portion of a subcatchment’s     pervious area runoff (previously they could only treat impervious area     runoff).
3.  Permeable pavement LID units subjected to clogging over time can now     have their permeability only partly restored at periodic time     intervals
4.  The following options were added to control flow out of LID units     through their underdrains:     - A storage layer water depth above which…
