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].vRouted/tStep);
        massbal_updateRunoffTotals(RUNOFF_RUNON, Outfall[i].vRouted);
        Outfall[i].vRouted = 0.0;

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 Pavement or Porous Pavment LID's so that a sand filter or bedding layer beneath the
    pavement can be modeled.

6.  Several new built-in variable names can now be used in
    custom groundwater flow equations for porosity, unsaturated
    hydraulic conductivity, infiltration rate, and percolation
    rate. See the Help file for more details.

GWvariables {
      gwvHGW,                  // water table height (ft)
         gwvHSW,                       // surface water height (ft)
         gwvHCB,                       // channel bottom height (ft)                 //(5.1.007)
         gwvHGS,                       // ground surface height (ft)                  //(5.1.007)
         gwvKS,                         // sat. hyd. condutivity (ft/s)                    //(5.1.007)
         gwvTHETA,                     // upper zone moisture content         //(5.1.008)
         gwvK,                         // unsat. hyd. conductivity (ft/s)               //(5.1.008)
         gwvPHI,                       // soil porosity                                           //(5.1.008)
         gwvFI,                        // surface infiltration (ft/s)                      //(5.1.008)
         gwvFU,                        // soil percolation (ft/s)                          //(5.1.008)
         gwvA,                         // subcatchment area (ft2)                      //(5.1.008)

7.  A Groundwater Summary table has been added that reports 
    several groundwater statistics for each subcatchment.

"\n                                                       Total    Total  Maximum  Average  Average    Final    Final"
"\n                          Total    Total    Lower  Lateral  Lateral       Upper    Water    Upper    Water"
"\n                          Infil     Evap  Seepage  Outflow  Outflow   Moist.    Table      Moist.    Table");

8.  A new option, the Minimum Variable Time Step, was added that
    limits the smallest time step that can be computed under
    variable time stepping for dynamic wave flow routing. In
    previous releases it was fixed at 0.5 seconds which remains
    the default. The smallest value it can now have is 0.001 sec.

9. The dynamic wave routing procedure was parallelized to take advantage of multiple processors, making it run several times faster. A new option, THREADS, sets the number of parallel threads to use, where the default is 1.


10. A new column was added to the Node Depth Summary report table
    that shows the maximum depth recorded at the Reporting Time Step
    so it can be compared to the maximum depth attained over all
    routing time steps also shown in the table.

"\n                                 Average  Maximum  Maximum  Time of Max    Reported"
"\n                                   Depth    Depth      HGL   Occurrence   Max Depth");

11. Control rule premises can now contain conditions that compare
    the values of a node or link variable at two different locations
    (e.g. IF NODE 123 HEAD and NODE 456 HEAD) and node volume was
    added as a condition clause variable.

//  - Support added for r.h.s. variables in rule premises.
//  - Node volume added as a premise variable.
