  1. Export statistical template results automatically as part of the manifest.

    Particularly CSO spill statistics - enabling models to be run maybe weekly with historical data, the statistics exported - spill nr, duration and particularly predicted volume. This data can then be analysed in tools outside of ICMLive. This data would significantly enhance the understanding of CSO spills by adding volume to the normal Event Duration Monitoring

  2. Un-ticking All Objects under ICM Properties and Themes

    The "Properties and Themes" provides the option to Display certain model Object Layers (i.e. Node, Conduit, 2D Zone, etc.). It is a very long list of about 50 layers.

    It would be helpful if there is an option to Tick (or Un-Tick) all layers at once.

  3. Commit history for scenarios

    Commit history for scenarios
    Show an extra column in the commit history window to indicate how many scenarios exist in this version of the network. Ideally, there would be a button or column through which you can see the names of the scenarios for this network version.

  4. Use tracers for water on mesh elements

    Our clients are more and more trying to figure out if damage to a property is caused by water from the public area (which is the responsibility of the client) or from private areas (which is not). When rainfall on mesh can pick up a tracer (eg. from existing objects like infiltration zones or roughness zones) we think we'll be able to better help our clients.

  5. Spread automatic inserted vertices in Bank Lines equally

    The "Update from ground model" provides the option to “Insert vertices on lines to give maximum spacing of x m”. This is very useful for creating Bank Line vertices at small intervals. It would be helpful if those inserted vertices are spread equally over the Bank Line section.

    At the moment new vertices are created at the specified interval (e.g. 10m), which often results in new vertices created very close to the existing downstream Cross-section end vertices. This can result in tiny internal triangles during meshing.

    Spreading out the inserted vertices at equal distance over the Bank Line will provide…

  6. section view of ground model and 2d mesh

    It would be very usefull to be able to generate a section view of both a ground model and a generated 2d mesh. At the moment this is only possible in a flood section after a simulation.

    So it should be not too difficult to move this possibility also to a network before simulating.

  7. Built-in mapping capabilities, like PCSWMM and Civil 3D have

    Other software has built-in background mapping capabilities for free, using OpenStreetMaps or Bing satellite/hybrid road maps for georeferenced models. The current capability of supporting WMS servers falls way too short and there are no free options available anymore.

    This should have been included ages ago.

  8. As a user i want to see 'failed' simulations within the Results Management Window rather than 'completed' status

    When a sim completes as status Incomplete the sim icon changes to red and the Job control window states sim status Incomplete. However, in the Results Management window the sim status is ‘Complete’!

    For consistency and user friendliness; Please can you fix to reflect the status Incomplete? This change will make re-running sims so much easier and save end users not having to delve into IDs to work out which sim need investigation.

  10. It will great if we can control the display of the labels in ICM to have a better visualization.

    For example : the possiblity of changing the precision in the labels (the decimal number of the value )

  11. Inflow files with different timesteps or ability to import multiple inflow files to a Run file.

    For inflow files, sometimes you have 15-min data for one gauge, and 5-min data for another location, and you want to import them both to the model. It would be helpful to be able to import inflow files with different timesteps for the same date range, so you don't have to manipulate data outside of ICM in excel. Or, allowing the ability to import multiple inflow files to the same run.

  12. Mesh zone on Mesh Zone

    The ability to have a mesh zone on a mesh zone. This would be useful when modelling Attenuation basins in 3D (using ground model / breaklines). It would easily allow to have a coarse mesh for the basin floor to improve the stability of Outfall 2Ds (where small triangles can limit flow to the outfall 2D) but still allow for a finer mesh for basin sides and in your study area.

  13. ICM - HEC-22 Combination Inlet for continuous grade inlets

    Currently ICM has 6 FWHA Gully Inlet types:
    ContCo Continuous Curb Opening
    ContG Continuous Grate
    SagC Sag Combination
    SagCO Sag Curb Opening
    SagG Sag Grate and
    UPC Grate

    A commonly used Inlet type (particularly in QLD Australia) that is missing from this list is the combination (curb opening + grate) on a continuous grade.

    Section 4.4.4.4. in the HEC-22 manual discuss the capacity of these inlets where the curb opening precedes the grate in the direction of flow. It would be particularly useful to include this option in ICM rather than assuming a grate only inlet type or having to…

  14. As a user I want to be able to adjust dry weather flow diurnal profiles easily to account for day light savings

    Diurnal wastewater and tradewaste profiles shift over the course of the year due to day light saving time adjustments. I would like to see ICM include the ability to phase shift the diurnal patterns to account for DLS. I believe this adjustment would be best placed in the "monthly calibration" tab where in addition to the scaling "factor' there is also a time adjustment factor

  15. Volume on a discharge graph with results section

    When we display the graph of the discharge (flow through line) of a results section (line object), we don’t have access of the information about the volume (usually when we display a discharge graph, the volume is indicated at the bottom of the graph, but it’s not the case with a results section).
    It could be interesting to have this information about the volume (especially because the results section are a tool very useful to use).

  16. Need additional Timestep function for "Between episodes" of "Simulation runoff only"

    It needs creating a new Timestep function in ICM Run window that allows setting up timestep for "Simulation runoff only" for the "Between episodes" separately with "Timestep (s)" in Run window. This new function saves a lot of running time when the model can simulate the runoff only with larger time step using the "Episode Collection"

  17. Pump Station Modelling

    Infoworks ICM pump station modelling principle is very basic, adding a pump between two nodes is highly hypothetical. There is no way to add pump station head losses.
    I would like to suggest incorporating pump station modelling (for Rotodynamic pumps) with pump curve and system curve theory. Then the model results would be much more realistic.
    There must be a tool to incorporate all the accessories in pump stations, between two nodes. Like pump station type, drywall wet well. And Parameters to calculate Pump suction and discharge losses, like all fittings, non-return valves, discharge valves, flow meters etc. This would…

  18. Scenario assigned 'official' ID numbers within software

    I would like for scenario names to be prefixed with a built-in ID number, in the same way that model commits have official version numbers, and wastewater and trade waste profiles have ID numbers. ICM clearly tracks ID numbers behind the scenes, since it is able to keep the scenarios in the same order (rather than sorting them alphabetically or similar).

    When specifying exactly which 'model' was used to produce a set of simulation results, it is necessary to specify network ID, version ID and scenario ID - so it would be helpful to be able to just point to…

  19. compatibility with WMTS servers

  20. Remove Need to Validate When Changing Background Layers

    Suggest that a network not need to validated or show that it was edited (red circle) for only switching on/off a background (e.g., aerial)layer would be appreciated. Keeping scenarios straight is tough enough w/out the additional heart attack when I don’t recall changing anything.
