  2. Modelling of Septicity

    As a sewer modeller I have occasionally been asked about odour generation in sewer networks. I have noticed that DO (dissolved oxygen) and BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) are both inputs in the wastewater and trade-waste model groups of Infoworks ICM SE. Given that these are possible inputs in a sewer model, is it possible to model the consumption of DO by BOD within the network to determine where and when the sewage becomes anaerobic and prone to odour generation? This would be particularly useful if you wanted to model the addition of a high BOD low volume trade waste stream…

  3. Apply RTC / observed values to Sluice Linear Structures

    At the moment we cannot move sluice linear structures in 2D. We're wanting to model a river entirely in 2D but the river is subject to a series of barrages that would require control. Therefore it would be essential to apply RTC and observed settings to the gates.

  4. Alert on river sections without having to make 1D results points

    We'd like to create alerts on river sections without having to create either results points or having the reach split at the cross section in question

  8. Interface Utility export efficiency

    Hi Paul,

    Can I make a suggestion regarding the InterfaceUtils.exe utility?

    Seeing that we are now dealing with considerably more rainfall data associated with ARR2016/2019 rainfall & temporal patterns, can Innovyze (or whoever created the abovementioned utility) look at updating the executable such that one doesn’t have to browse for a particular file in the “File name” field. As an alternative, it would be handy if we had the option to simply update the file name manually in the “File name” field and press a “reload button”. Furthermore, it would also be beneficial if there was an additional function to…

  10. Improvement on the Numerical Correction Process in ICM

    The current procedure for ‘Numerical Correction’ in ICM requires users to remove any existing values to calculate the correction (for Preismann and Base flow) before the inbuilt routine is run. If this wasn't made the calculated correction values are added on top of any existing value thereby reducing the total storage in the system. However, the correction for 'Storage Compensation' deletes any existing values before calculating the compensation value. Therefore, there is inconsistency in the approach which has the potential to reduce the total storage at a node. Either, the inbuilt process for 'Numerical Correction' should be revisited or the…

  11. Realign Feature Tool

    For XPSWMM and Infoworks (any GUI editor you have actually):

    Moving an existing line substantially is something that occasionally happens. If we could do this without having to delete the entire thing, or click and drag each vertex one at a time, it would be a big help at times.

    A new feature I’d like to see for lines/polygons is a ‘realign feature’ tool. When selected, if you clicked on a vertex in a line or on a polygon boundary (single click and release), it would ‘grab’ that vertex and allow you to move it. Once you place it by…

  12. Sort by Validation Error in Grid View

    Allow columns in grid views to be sorted by validation error(s). This would make fixing validation errors much easier.

    For example, when modelled pipes/nodes are updated from the GIS, the Subcatchments sometimes lose their Node ID link as the node names may have changed. Being able to sort these validation issues to the top of the grid would make fixing the errors much easier. This would be particularly useful across multiple scenarios since the selection list created from the validation can't be saved with the "un-shown" objects from a different scenario.

  13. RTC - New time range to allow "between 2 dates" every year

    In a similar way to the way "time repeat" works, can we have an RTC range that works between the same 2 dates every year. I have a catchment where the operating protocol works differently in the Bathing Season from the rest of the year. Having a way to check with one range if we are in the bathing season or not would avoid the clunky work arounds.

  14. Total sediment ( SF1+SF2).

    In the result “graph” and “table” window add a new field for “total sediment” which presents the mass flow and the concentration of “sf1”+”sf2”

  15. Local water quality settings.

    User can set local water quality parameters and local initial condition of Water Quality in ICM rather than globally.
    Local WQ parameter should at least contain decay rate, DO process coefficient etc..
    As for the local initial condition, DO concentration and other pollutants concentration could be set for each river reach.
    For example, for one node or one link it could have a local “decay” in itself. And for the initial condition every node or link can have different intial pollution concentrations.

  18. Add a modelling confidence field into the User Defined Flags

    This could simply be an additional free text field in the "User Defined Flags" window labelled "confidence" OR the user is able to define their own but they are limited to 5-7 options.

    The benefit is that when users pick up a model they better understand the confidence associated with each flag. Generally the "Description" field is currently seen as a "source" field. The users can then use SQLs / Ruby to build their own model confidence tools as they see fit while allowing greater transparency and functionality.

  19. Export results to CSV/Database with a more flexible selection list in ICMLive

    In ICMLive, we can now export results to CSV/Database with a pre-defined selection list. In ICM, we can have a more flexible way.
    For example if I hope to export results point (2D), initially I may have 1 million points. What we can do in ICM is, run a SQL to query points with sim.max_depth2d > 0.05, then save them to a selection list. We may only have 0.1 million points to export.
    Can we have a similar function in ICMLive, which combines SQL and selection list?
