Visual INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPILING SWMM5.EXE USING MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO 2017 =======================================================================
1. Create a sub-directory named VS2017-CLE under the directory where    the SWMM 5 Engine source code files are stored and copy SWMM5.DEF    and VS2017-DLL.VCPROJ to it. 2. Launch Visual Studio 2017 and use the File Open command to open    the VS2017-DLL.VCPROJ file. 3. Issue the Build Configuration Manager command and select the    Release configuration. 4. Issue the Build VS2017-DLL command to build SWMM5.DLL    (which will appear in the Release subdirectory underneath the    VC2017-DLL directory).

How to See the Highest Continuity Errors Table in the Output Report Manager In InfoSWMM and SWMM5

Image
How to See the Highest Continuity Errors Table in the Output Report ManagerIn the output text report file of InfoSWMM, InfoSWMM SA and SWMM5 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 defined by Node Outflow - Node Inflow.   This  table is  also shown in the Output Report Manger  table   The same value of Node Outflow - Node Inflow is shown in the Junction Summary table under the column flow volume difference.  The units of flow volume difference will be the same as the RPT file if the units are changed in the Output Unit Manger.

How to change the volume units  in  the Output Unit Manger.  Change the volume to MG or ML (for SI units).

The flow volume difference can also be seen in Map Display by picking the Active Output variable Vol_Diff or Flow Volume Difference.

InfoSWMM and InfoSewer from Innovyze both are Extensions inside of Arc Map (versions 10 to 10.6 and counting)

InfoSWMM and InfoSewer from Innovyze both are Extensions inside of Arc Map (versions 10 to 10.6 and counting).   As Innovyze Arc GIS products they (and InfoWater) share a common menu structure: Project, Edit, View, Exchange, Scenario, Tools, Utilities, Applications and Help.  InfoSewer only has one Application, InfoSewer Load Allocator, whereas InfoSWMM has many additional Applications.  These series of blogs attempts to show the commonality in tools between InfoSWMM and InfoSewer.

Building Sewer Collection System models using InfoSewer

Image
Building Sewer Collection System models using InfoSewer InfoSewer is developed to take full advantage of the capabilities of GIS and relational database management systems (RDBMS) technology. By embedding GIS mapping functions and utilizing proven and efficient tools for information exchange and graphical data entry, maintenance and display, InfoSewer provides the user with an efficient easy-to-use vehicle for network model construction and management.In InfoSewer , a sanitary and storm sewer collection system model consists of two major components:Network schematic - The network schematic provides a critical role as a model input, providing information on the connectivity, length, and shape of network components and it also plays an important role in the display and analysis of model results, acting as the vehicle for results presentation.Modeling attributes - Information associated with network elements act as the primary input to the hydraulic network simulator. This informa…

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

Image
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 form) loss. The local (minor) loss associated with a particular fitting can be evaluated by where   V         =          mean velocity in the conduit (m/s, ft/s) K         =          loss coefficient for the particular fitting involved. The table given below provides the loss coefficients (K) for various transitions and fittings. Table 3-3: Typical Minor Loss Coefficients Type of form loss K Expansion Sudden D1 < D2 Gradual D1/D2 = 0.8 0.03 D1/D2 = 0.5 0.08 D1/D2 = 0.2 0.13 Contraction Sudden D1 > D2 Gradual D2/D1

Subcatchment Hydrological (Modeling) - Data TableThis table contains all subwatershed data that is used to estimate the amount of  runoff and pollutant yielding from Subwatersheds. For more information on each of the input (data fields) in this table, Subcatchment editor may be referred.  The following table is in invert colors and shows the whole first row of the DB Table on separate rows in the image.
Field Description Subcatchment ID User determined ID.  It can only be changed with the Change ID command. Raingage ID Specify Raingage ID used to input rainfall data to Subcatchment. Receiving Node ID Node ID for node receiving rainfall hydrograph from Subcatchment. Subcatchment Area Area of Subcatchment Subcatchment Impervious (%) Percentage of the Subcatchment covered by impervious surfaces. Subcatchment Width Characteristic width of the Subcatchment (feet or meters). Subcatchment Slope (%) Slope of the Subcatchment. Subcatchment Curb Length Total length of curbs in the Subcatchment (any length un…
