How to Understand the OUT directory in InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA

Note: How to Understand the OUT directory in InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA

How you understand the files in the .OUT directory:

.OUT OUT directory of the InfoSWMM project

Scenario Location of all Scenario Output Files

Base The Base Scenario in this case

JOB The temporary output file for inp, out and txt files during the simulation – this should be cleaned outand copied at the end of the simulation

  • HYDQUA Header.html is the left side of the browser page
  • HYDQUA.html is the text output file from SWMM 5
  • HYDQUA.inp SWMM 5 “like” input file for InfoSWMM, It is the same information as in SWMM5 but as a CSV file.
  • HYDQUA.out Binary Output File
  • hydqua.rpt.lid.txt LID Text Output File
  • hydqua.rpt.txt InfoSWMM Text Output Comprehensive Storm Water Management Model: based on EPA-SWMM 5.0.022
If you have an data abort in some of the older InfoSWMM models the txt and inp files are still in the JOB directory and NOT the BASE directory. They can still be viewed in the JOB directory using the Notepad icons and searching for the files.

HYDQUA.html,  HYDQUA Header.html and hydqua.rpt.txt together in the browser.
