How to change the Maximum Infiltration in a DB Table of InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM

Image
How to change the Maximum Infiltration in a DB Table of InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM  There are a lot of methods in InfoSWMM and H20MAP SWMM to change the infiltration data.  You have the ability to change it for  1.      an individual Subcatchment using the Attribute Browser 2.      by soil type and 3.      the coverage of the soil over all of the Subcatchments – this will alter the areal weighted average of the infiltration data  You have layers of infiltration data in the interface to your model data.  The infiltration parameters are defined per soil as in a real watershed and the Subcatchments will use the areal weighted infiltration values of all of the soils on the Subcatchment.  You get more flexibility and closer to the physical reality of the Subcatchment by having layers of soil on the Subcatchment rather than one set of infiltration per Subcatchment.  Of course if you set up one soil type per Subcatchment then you will have 100 percent coverage of the same infiltration set of parame…

Build SWMM 5.1.008 (04/02/2015) New Features with Images

SWMM 5.1.008 (04/02/2015) New Features 1. Monthly adjustments for hydraulic conductivity used for rainfall infiltration and for exfiltration from storage nodes and conduits was added.This was added to the Monthly Adjustments Table// Data formats are:// TEMPERATURE v1 ... v12 // EVAPORATION v1 ... v12 // RAINFALL v1 ... v12 // CONDUCTIVITY v1 ... v12  
2. LID drains can now send their outflow to a different node or subcatchment than the parent subcatchment in which they were placed.drainSubcatch; // subcatchment receiving drain flow //(5.1.008) drainNode; // node receiving drain flow //(5.1.008) 3. Conveyance system Outfall nodes now have the option to send their outflow onto a subcatchment, to simulate irrigation or complex LID treatment options. // --- add outfall's flow to subcatchment as runon and re-set routed // flow volume to 0 subcatch_addRunonFlow(k, Outfall[i].vRo…

QA/QC Process for the Import of an XP-SWMM model to InfoWorks ICM

Image
The following section shows how the XP-SWMM file (MyXP.XP) was converted to an ICM 6 model using the ICM SWMM 6 import tools. The XP-SWMM model was converted to ICM 6 using a combination of the import process in ICM of a SWMM5 input file (MySWMM5File.INP ) and an Extensive QA/QC process using the .XP file of XP-SWMM (MyXP.XP). Figure 1 shows how the file MySWMM5File.INP looks inside of SWMM 5.1. Figure 2 shows the model summary of the file MySWMM5File.INP which was exported in SWMM 5 format from XP-SWMM. Figure 3 shows the Import process in ICM for any SWMM5 file. Figure 4 show how the file MySWMM5File.INP looks like ICM after the Import. Figure 5 shows the element summary in ICM of the imported file MyXP.XP. The number of links, nodes, Subcatchments and diversions match the input file and the summary shown in Figure 2. There are approximately 7000 nodes, links, diversions and Subcatchments in the model. After import into ICM the imported data was checked using the Network Validation to…

SWMM 5.1 Update History - Build 5.1.008 (04/02/2015)

SWMM 5.1 Update History ======================= -------------------------- Build 5.1.008 (04/02/2015) -------------------------- Engine Updates: New Features: ============= 1. Monthly adjustments for hydraulic conductivity used for rainfall infiltration and for exfiltration from storage nodes and conduits was added. 2. LID drains can now send their outflow to a different node or subcatchment than the parent subcatchment in which they were placed. 3. Conveyance system Outfall nodes now have the option to send their outflow onto a subcatchment, to simulate irrigation or complex LID treatment options. 4. A new LID practice, Rooftop Disconnection, has been added. It allows one to explicitly model roof runoff with an optional limit on the flow capacity of their downspouts. Disconnection is specified by setting the Return To Pervious Area field in the [LID_USAGE] section to 1. 5. An optional soil layer has been added to Permeable Pavemen…

Here’s a photo of my dad holding me when I was super little outside my childhood home at The University of Florida. Yes, I actually grew up on campus! And the other photo is of me at the pool we always went to.  Read about my dad’s obsession with water.
My Dad is Obsessed with Water He always has been now that I think about it. When I was a little girl living in Gainesville, FL, he would take me down a path less traveled to get to the pool. We’d walk in the creek and through a tunnel, instead of walking on the sidewalk and on the crosswalk. He showed me that you can make your own rules. Through the daily treks in the creek, I learned that what is important is the adventure that you make for yourself, no…
