  1. Urban (or modified) ReFH rainfall inputs

    ICM currently supports the use of ReFH And ReFH2 parameters. However, it does not support the Urban (or modified) ReFH rainfall that is more commonly used in urban environments. Please could ICM introduce the ability to use Urban ReFH parameters in their system.

  2. Implement the Nash-Sutcliffe coefficient to evaluate the quality of the calibration

    Developp this tool would help the customer to analyze their calibration and justify the used coefficients.

  3. Call the 'Total storage calculation' function from a ruby script and write the output into a csv-file

    It would be a great feature to call the 'Total storage calculation' function from a ruby script and write the output into a csv-file.

    If it is not possible to call the build-In function from ruby, it would also help to call the 'storage calculation function' from InfoWorks ICM UI for a set of nodes (maybe from a selection list) and write the output directly to csv-file(s).

  4. Export Max Flood Contours - Elevation

    It would add value to ICM if users could export the Maximum Flood Contours as Elevations in the same way that we can for Depth. This would be particularly useful as currently Depth is the only property that be be exported as an ASCII Grid file.

    It appears that the contour intervals used in the export is taken from the "Flood" theme. Perhaps under "Map Type" there could be options to add "Flood Elevation - Filled/Show Layers/Transparent/etc" and hence with a Flood Elevation map type chosen the Max Flood Contours could be exported as elevations.

  5. Would like MSI installer licensing option flags

    As an IT admin, I would like to install XPSWMM/XPSTORM using the MSI installer with flags to set the licensing options, so that I can automate the installation.

  6. RTC Debugging Interface and Support

    It would be really useful to have a debugging module for the RTC components in InfoWorks ICM so that one can go step by step through a simulation to display in simulation RTC values-things like variable values (e.g. timers), range/logic values, active/deactivate rules and so on to make isolating RTC schemes simpler. This would be kind of like a debugging module for computer programming in languages such as VBA or C++ or perhaps another grid view. I also find that there are a lot of RTC concepts that we find our by trial and error and it would be useful…

  7. I want to be able to open a layer list using Exchange (Ruby)

    As part of a ruby script, I would like to add a specific layer list to a network to enable a Spatial SQL to be run. This script needs to be run on all our networks as part of a regular update. We have 1100 models which would require an extensive manual activity.

    There is an existing method "WSOpenNetwork.openmolayer_list" but this i sonly available internally to Innovyze. Could you please make it available to all?

  8. Long-sections: Centre Geoplan on the selected link

    It would be handy if the Geoplan centred on the selected link when selecting a long section. It seems every time select a long-section the windows split into two halves, one for the geoplan, the other for the long-section. As a result the link I just selected is seldom visible in the geoplan frame, meaning I have to manually re-center the geoplan before I can carry on selecting links for the long section.

  9. 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.

  10. As a user I need to represent and optimise for throttled discharge from subcatchments to node or conduit objects

    Many cities are limiting maximum stormwater dicharge to drainage networks.
    ICM should include more efficient modelling regarding
    - Limiting stormwater flows from subcatchments via throttle requirement (e.g. 0-10 l/s*ha subcatchment), suggesting a new subcatchment data field.
    - And quickly analyse how much stormwater (e.g. 10 m³ ) needs to be managed/retained on each subscatchment site via SUDS such as greenroofs, swales, etc. in order to meet and optimise throttle requirements.

  11. Selection List Subtraction

    I was looking for a way to subtract one selection list from another. In other words, we would like to remove overlaps between selection sets but it seems there is no way to do that easily in ICM.

    It is highly recommended to include this feature for future versions as competitors such as Bentley SewerGEMS have already had this for years now.

  13. Better performance and functionalities of the recycle bin

    In a workgroup database, the Recycle Bin today is more a nuisance than a useful feature. When there are too many items in it, it can delay the connection to the database considerably or even make it impossible to connect. The functionalities for selectively restoring or removing items are also very poor. E.g. you cannot select on the user who deleted items, or find the original path in the database where items were deleted from. The only real use is when you accidentally delete something and restore it immediately, but then maybe a personalised recycle bin which only exists during…

  14. 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.

  16. TSDBs to produce logs of SQL queries

    This is important to assist troubleshooting issues related with TSDB performance during implementation and maintenance of TSDBs. The log should include the exact queries produced by their streams when data is updated.

  17. More gems available ICM Exchange that allow for a better user interface (shoes, tk, RubyFX, etc.)

    I would like more gems to be available within ICM Exchange that allow for a better end-user experience with ICM Exchange (not command line prompts). The specific gems I would reccomend are shoes, tk, and RubyFX - or any other gems that have applications for user interface

  19. Infoworks ICM- Sewage Temperature Modelling and Heat Losses

    The following features should be added to Infoworks ICM for modelling temperature impacts for Heat extraction or heat insertion projects:
    - Sewage temperature to be added in WWG file as a pollutograph parameter and can also be defined in a diurnal pattern to consider trade temperature profiles
    - I&I temperatures can be extra entered
    - Linear heat losses can be defined for standard pipe configurations towards an equilibrium temperature
    - Temperature mixing at each node, based on WQ simulation engine
    - Heat extraction or insertion possible at any model node

  20. Run a SQL Query that requires sim and sim2 to be active from ICM Exchange
