  1. Add a result grid window for cross sections

    Currently there is not a grid results window to show all cross sections. Would be helpful to have one. Also would be good if the grid window can show geometric elements of each cross section, such as bank levels, flow area, wetted perimeter, hydraulic radius, critical depth, etc.

  2. Transportabele database (.icmt) containing an earlier version of the commited network without losing the commit history

    For the moment we can only 'branch' an earlier version from the commit history interface or 'copy' this earlier version.
    - the branch can't be disconnected from the 'mother' network
    - the copy looses the commit history
    It would be nice to deliver a .icmt file that contains only the earlier version of a network we are working on including the commit history and detached from the original network, so no branch.

  3. Rename Pages in Observed vs Predicted Graphs to Flow Monitor/ Depth Monitor nos

    Provide way to rename Pages on Observed vs Predicted Graphs to Flow Monitor/ Depth Monitor nos. If there are considerable nos of FM/ DMs, an individual has to go through page nos to find out which FM is checked/verified. Facility to rename the pages to relevant FM/DM would help quick viewing of graphs.

  5. blockage

    Applying pipe blockage is a standard required in Australia and the functionality in ICM to do this is not user friendly (using blockage links). A simple % pipe blockage in the conduit properties should really be an option. This is particular the case for cross drainage and also orifice and pipes leaving detention basins (where a pit isnt used)

  6. 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

  8. Zoom graphs on either axis

    Many software suites allow the option to zoom in on both y and x axes on their graphs. However, ICM only allows zooming on the x-axis which often takes away the ability to see trends for lower or higher conditions. I am aware that it is possible to change the y-axis range in properties, but that is not desired since it requires changing the range numerous times as you pan through the data. This is a major caveat which sometimes changes our choice of modeling software, especially for systems which require heavy calibration and data visualization.

  9. 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…

  10. Export river cross sections for an ICM model

    At present, ICM river cross sections can only be exported to dwg one by one. It would be helpful to be able to export all the modelled cross sections in a single operation (eg via data export centre)

  11. New polygon to represent "buildings" geometry and hydrology

    This polygon would allow the user to set the roughness, porosity and flood threshold level all within a single polygon object - negating the need for many overlapping ones. Furthermore, the user is able to set the runoff characteristics for the building. These will be generated as per subcatchment with a single runoff surface and routed to the specified location. Additionally, the user has the ability to set a capacity limit, any flow above this will be capped from entering the 1D network. Instead the flow will be passed out on to the elements surrounding the building. Much as the…

  12. ICM - Statistics Template: Daily events

    I want to be able to break my events into daily values. Currently this would require setting up 7 separate templates each with the unique day set under the 'Time Window' button. I want a tick option added that will allow me to do this within the single template.

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

    I would like to run a SQL query from ICM Exchange that requires two simulations to be active. I would like to be able to call multiple simulations simultaneously from Exchange.

  14. Add Date Properties to Scenario Objects (Ruby)

    This would add a date_created or date_last_committed field to Scenario Objects in the WSApplication.current_network.

    It could be used to delete (or archive) old scenarios.

    For example, this would allow users to write a ruby script that can loop through and delete any scenarios greater than 3 years old.

  15. Get the elapsed time of the simulation in ICM Exchange

    It is not possible to get the information of the Job Control window with the current ICM Exchange, but it would be very useful to be able to create a dashboard using ICM Exchange to manage simulations and coordinators.

  16. Assign InfoWorks Agent Groups by hostname prefix or wildcard

    The InfoWorks Agent coordinator settings allow simulation machines to be grouped by hostname. However, when using Azure virtual machine scale sets (and likely other similar auto scaling cloud environments) a preconfigured hostname includes an incremental suffix (00001, 0000A...FFFFF) that cannot be predetermined. It would be useful if it was possible to assign machines to groups using just the initial characters of the hostname (without the suffix) or by using a wildcard.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Our clients would like to see InfoWorks ICM apply daylight savings time corrections to wastewater and tradewaste inflows

    As a toggle setting in the run settings or in a wastewater/tradewaste pattern, this would shift the diurnal patterns based on the simulation date and daylight savings time start/end dates instead of working on standard time all year long. Mathematically, this is really straightforward, but may require internal indexes (and warning messages?) for the DST start/end dates. It would also require something to turn this feature on and off as there are several areas that do not observe DST. This feature would help us more accurately predict combined sewer overflow volumes and durations where base wastewater flow has a significant…

  20. Using SWMM5 treatment equations at a node or link in ICM Networks

    Users would like to use SWMM5 Buildup Washoff in ICM Networks AND the SWMM5 treatment equations at a node or link in the ICM St Venant solution.

    ICM SWMM networks have both options but for the purposes of using the powerful routing solution in ICM - It would be good to have at least a treatment feature at node/link even as a simple percentage pollutant removal LID/SuDS do have this simple BMP water quality removal.
