Innovyze Releases InfoSWMM Generation V13, Spearheading New Era in GIS-Centric Smart Wastewater Modeling
Latest Release Gives Communities Groundbreaking Network Simulation Power and Full Compatibility with SWMM 5.1
Broomfield, Colorado, USA, October 21, 2014 — In its ongoing quest to equip the wastewater industry with the world’s most comprehensive and innovative smart network modeling and management solutions, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide availability of the V13 Generation of its industry-leading InfoSWMM for ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA). InfoSWMM V13 provides unique new capabilities and enhancements that comprise the most advanced approach to guiding and optimizing collection systems planning, designs, operations and management.
The only urban drainage modeling solution certified by the National Association of GIS-centric Software, the full-featured InfoSWMM analysis and design program delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sewer system — from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, pollution prediction, sediment transport and deposition, urban flooding, real-time control, and record keeping — are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. The program’s powerful hydraulic and water quality computational engine is based on the latest SWMM 5.1 version, which is endorsed by the USEPA and certified by FEMA. These features and more deliver an enhanced modeling experience and greater realism of displayed results — advantages that translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, higher accuracy, better efficiency, and improved designs.
InfoSWMM also serves as a robust base platform for advanced modeling, operational, capital planning, and analytics-driven asset management extensions. Some of these critical applications include InfoSWMM 2D (two-dimensional surface flood modeling), CapPlan (risk-based capital planning and asset performance modeling), InfoMaster (GIS-centric asset management), and RDII Analyst (rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration planning and analysis).
The release of InfoSWMM V13 extends previous generations’ capabilities with over 50 new features, improvements, and groundbreaking innovations in geoengineering productivity and efficiency. These advances greatly simplify, accelerate, and integrate urban drainage network engineering, helping wastewater engineers develop better designs and operational improvements faster. Among the new features are new LID modules specifically for Green Roofs and Rain Gardens, addition of a modified Horton method for infiltration, the ability to use a second user-supplied equation for groundwater outflow as well as a conduit’s OPEN/CLOSED status in both control rules premise conditions and action clauses, addition of both evaporation and seepage from conduits, ability to save a hot start file that contains the full state of the system, the addition of conduit flow volume as a time series output variable, and summary tables enhancements.
“Our priorities have always been to advance the frontiers of smart network modeling technology and support our customers’ successes by helping them be more productive, innovative and competitive —imperatives in today’s economy,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, NAE, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President, COO and Chief Technical Officer of Innovyze. “This major InfoSWMM release delivers on our promise to equip our customers with the ultimate ArcGIS-centric decision support tool for sewer collection and urban drainage systems. Like its predecessors, InfoSWMM V13 sets a new standard for quality and high-performance network modeling and management with unrivaled power and speed, cutting-edge capabilities, rich functionality and ease of use. From top to bottom, it is designed for record modeling performance that enables users to increase their productivity and quality while achieving their engineering, sustainability and business goals.”
