  1. FEH13 Peak intensity fix

    Fix required for over estimation of summer peak intensities within FEH13 design rainfall brought on by a smaller timesteps being used and not a minimum % of the total duration.

    Also to separate out the Areal Reduction Factor and Seasonal Correction Factors for clarity of the data.

    Thank you for the requests, as the urgency is around the ability to submit user defined timesteps, the areal reduction factor and seasonal correction factors will be treated as a separate request.

    As a further update to any previously provided, we can confirm that an additional feature for the ReFH2 rainfall is due to be included in the next release scheduled of InfoWorks ICM for the middle of February. Rather than the current approach, this will allow a user to set a timestep for ReFH2 rainfall generation in the generator dialog.

    In this first iteration it is likely that a single timestep entry will be available. We appreciate that ideally multiple entries corresponding to multiple durations defined would be better so will look at options for this enhancement for a future release.

  2. Model results as TVD connectors

    We'd like to have model results as an input in the TVD connectors. An example is where we have observed flows that we would like to use at a tributary and then switch to catchment flows when the observations run out. We know this can be done using a set up of sluices and dummy objects but it would be a lot more elegant to simply have the subcatchment as Input B. I'm sure there are plenty of other examples of where using model results as an input would be useful.

  4. Calculating volume storage on river reaches

    In the application of ICM, we often count the regulation volume of river channels.But at the moment we can only calculatethe total available volume of channels/river reaches between two cross sections by using length and cross sectional areas.If the number of river sections is very large in the model,it will take a lot of time and effort to accomplish this work. It would be great to have the tool to calculate volume storage on river reaches automatically.

  5. Statistic Report Batch Processing

    As a use the ability to 'schedule' statistical reports would be extremely useful. currently if i'm generating a spill report on several overflows for a 10yr TSR series this can take several hours. The process effectively locks the software and prevents any other operation from been undertaken. This is highly inefficient and costly especially when optioneering if several iterations are needed. Shorter TSR's can be run in this case however even a year with several CSO's can take 20-30mins.

  7. Show water levels at Bridge Linear Structures

    We would like to see the water levels at the bridge linear structures as it is important for us to be able to see the water levels with respect to the bridge openings and decks.

  9. 'Find and Replace Flags' tool on multiple networks.

    As a large organisation with multiple users of InfoWorks ICM we have a set up with one masterdatabase and everyone using groups off this in order to keep all users on the same version. The downside is, that as users import previous models more flags get added, which are now obsolete in our current specification leading to hundreds of flags in the masterdatabase. It is not practicable to use the find and replace flags tool on each network individually, if this feature was expanded to be able to use on multiple networks, it would make administering our model flags much…

  10. License management functions

    As ICM is fundamentally a workgroup environment, so shared across multiple offices and multiple users, we need to be able to understand license usage of user interfaces and simulation engines. We need ICM to log usage so we can then develop tools to interpret that information or build this into ICM so we can see usage. We often have instances when users cannot get licenses but there is no way to log this so we can establish a business case for purchasing more licenses. Similar with simulation engines we need to be able to report usage to demonstrate the need…

    We are currently developing an updated license system for all Innovyze products. This will include the ability to identify license usage information.

    We are currently gathering additional requirements for these features. We are more than happy to discuss these requirements.

  11. User URL for X/Y Coordinates

    Currently, the User URL option for the "View Online" menu in Innovyze ICM only allows for the output of longitude and latitude coordinates. Our GIS system is built on the BNG projection and therefore uses X/Y coordinates in its URL. Can you enable X/Y coordinates to be used in the User URL generated by ICM?

  12. Report InfoSWMM available capacity against theoretical flow for specified d/D

    InfoSWMM provides Pipe/Conduit summary report with values for Max flow divided by "Full Flow". Here the "full flow" is based on Manning's equation for when the pipe is full. However as a sewer utility, we're not allowed to fill pipes. We must keep pipes below 80% full as a constant benchmark.
    We'd prefer all our reports are compared against 0.8d/D instead of Full Flow.

  13. bottom opening

    Beside an upstanding vertical orrifice, it would be practical to be able to implement horizontal 'bottom holes' from one node to an underlaying node. e.g when a ditch can drain to an underlying conduit by means of a bottom opening. This might be a more straight forward implementation then the weir circumference workround method which is now often used. if possible both circular and rectangular.

  14. Include weirs and orifices in xpswmm ensemble statistics

    Please include weirs and orifices in the ARR Ensemble Statistics summary. Currently, only conduits or natural channels are included.

  15. Sim Slots

    There should be an option to select to limit sim slots to be used by a model so other models dont go in waiting when running sims simulataneously .

    Hello there,

    If my understanding of the request is correct then I believe that this capability does already exist in the agent options. If you are able to start the InfoWorks ICM agent manager, then here it is possible to set a maximum number of concurrent simulations which can be active at any one time.

    Thanks,
    Pascal

  17. Ability to access databases where Workgroup Data Server and databases don't reside on same server

    With the large amounts of data generated it would be beneficial if a supported configuration would be to have a WDS installed on a server but pointing at databases (and solves etc) over the network on a remote storage system (such as NAS). This would make the whole solution far more scalable as the need arose.

  18. Have multiple Workgroup Data Servers

    I want to be able to segregate databases between different parts of the business so they only have visibility of, and access those specific to them. Having the ability to install multiple WDS on a single server makes sense from a cost/configuration/data segregation perspective but currently this isn't possible.

  19. Integrate a Template option for setting out run group in Infoworks ICM

    I am working on project which includes 50 models. where we have to give runs for different return periods and durations for each model. It is a time taking process, which unnecessarily create chances of error by creating run setup every time. is it possible to include a run set up template, which can be changed as per the user requirement and saved for the further use.?

  20. Speed up the creation/amending of ICMTs

    Creating or amending ICMTs is slow, especially if they contain ground models. Even deleting or creating new 'folder' items in ICMTs is slow. Speeding this process up would increase productivity.
