AAEES 2017 Innovyze Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology Award Presented to Dr. Qian Zhang

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, May 23, 2017 – Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced that Dr. Qian Zhang, Research Scientist with the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science at the USEPA Chesapeake Bay Program, has been chosen to receive the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES) 2017 Innovyze Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology Award. This prestigious annual award recognizes a student whose research contributes to the knowledge pool in Computational Hydraulics & Hydrology. Selection is based on original, innovative research of publishable quality and other factors. Both Master’s and Ph.D. students are eligible.

Administered by AAEES and co-sponsored by Innovyze, the award consists of cash honoraria of $1,500 for the student and $500 fo…

How to approximate the Flood polygon created in InfoSWMM RAM by using Arc Toolbox

How to approximate the Flood polygon created in InfoSWMM RAM by using Arc Toolbox and Subcatchment Manager Tools Step 1 – Run InfoSWMM and use Map Display to show the Maximum HGL. This is just for reference to the later created polygons. Step 2 – not needed but as a check to Steps 3 to 5.  Use InfoSWMM RAM to show the area flooding based on the Maximum head or HGL.  This is an approximation of the flooding you would show with have with InfoSWMM 2D.  The maximum HGL is intersected with the DEM or TIN and the DEM elevations below the Maximum HGL are shown in Blue.
Step 3 – Create a contour based on the Maximum HGL in the InfoSWMM run.  Use Contour in the InfoSWMM Browser to create the contour. Step 4 – The created Contour from the Maximum HGL
Step 5 – Use the Polyline to Raster Arc Toolbox command to make a Raster from the Contour
Step 6 – Optionally you an create a Raster using Convert in the InfoSWMM Subcatchment Manger. The tool creates a DEM from a Contour
Step 7 – Use the CutFill too…

How to use a Small INI file with the Batch Program of #SWMM5

Image
A great feature of SWMM5 is the ability to use batch files to call the Console engine of SWMM5 or SWMM5.EXE.  This is used by many students and professionals for Monte Carlo and other analysis.  Here is a sample batch file and Figure 1 shows the screen output.

swmm5.exe Example1.inp Example1.rpt Example1.out
swmm5.exe Example2.inp Example2.rpt Example2.out
swmm5.exe Example3.inp Example3.rpt Example3.out
REM RPT is the text output file   
REM OUT is the binary graphics output file

How to Model and Display Peaking Factors in InfoSWMM

How to Model and Display Peaking Factors in InfoSWMM 
A significant difference between InfoSewer/H2OMap Sewer and InfoSWMM/H2OMap SWMM is how peaking factors are applied to the dry weather flow (DWF) at the nodes.  InfoSewer has unspeakable and peakable flow with the peakable flow equation defined in the peaking tab of the Run Manger (Figure 1).  The peakable flow equation is only used in the Steady State solution of InfoSewer. InfoSWMM only has unspeakable flow and no way to define peakable flow.  This blog shows a way to externally calculate the peakable flow in Excel and apply it as a DWF Scenario DB in InfoSWMM/H2OMap SWMM.  Here is a list of steps you can take to show the peakable load in InfoSWMM/H2OMap SWMM.  Figure 12 contrasts the peakable flow estimate in InfoSWMM compared to the InfoSewer peakable steady state flows. Step 1.  Enter the DWF Unpeakable flow in the InfoSWMM DWF DB table without a DWF Pattern (Figure 2).  We will run the model with constant inflow to sim…
