  1. Rating curves / equations as downstream boundaries

    At the moment we can use 'user control' links to act upstream of the DS boundary. These links have head/flow/power as their inputs. It would be useful to have a dedicated object that could be either a look up table of levels (rather than heads) and discharges, or an equation that would define the level / discharge relationship. Note that if an equation option were selected then it would need to be multi-part to allow for a changing relationship as water goes out of bank.

  2. Agricultural pollution.

    Including agricultural pollution in the model. Such as fertilization and pesticide application. These pollutions can buildup rapidely on the surface and washoff during irrigation and rainfall period. Some common model softwares such as SWAT and WASP have this simulation process.

  3. Water environmental capacity calculation

    Add environmental capacity calculation in ICM, user can easily find how much pollution the river can receive at each time step and each river’s total environment capacity during the whole simulatiton.
    Water Environmental Capacity Calculation
    Background
    Water environmental capacity is an essential component of water environmental assessment and must be monitored and managed for economic, engineering, and human health reasons. Many efforts have been made to study methods for the calculation of water environmental capacity. This content reviews available literature on water environmental capacity. The evolutionary history and application scenarios of major water quality models, and water environmental capacity calculation…

  4. "jet flow" and agitation (inflow with a certain speed)

    In China, efforts are being made to improve black and smelly water bodies. One of the measures is to increase water fluidity to improve water quality through natural purification of water bodies. So there are two measures to increase the fluidity of water body: "jet flow" and agitation. We need to add these two measures to ICM. In one-dimensional river or two-dimensional water body, the simulation of "jet" device is added to realize the setting of an inflow into the model at a certain speed. In a two-dimensional water body, the addition of local agitation facilities can realize the change…

  5. Calculatiton speed with diffusion needs to improve.

    Diffusion will seriously slow down the model culculation. But generally the water quality models have to run for several years. With current simulation speed that would be unlikely to do a water quality simulation with diffusion.

  7. Export Flood Profile from ICM to AutoCAD Civil 3D Profile file

    While exporting to AutoCAD DWG file format is ok - we used AutoCAD Civil 3D for drawing profiles. Can you just create a Profile file? or use LandXML to represent this information.

    From the Autodesk Help:
    About the Format Requirements of Profile Files

    Use profile files to record layout data for points of vertical intersection (PVIs) in a profile.

    A profile file is a simple text file in ASCII format. The file contains a series of stations along an alignment, the elevation of each station, and optionally, the length of curve at the station. Each line can include up to…

  12. Get time-series values from an existing (rainfall/inflow/level) event in ICM Exchange

    In ICM, we can open a rainfall event as graph. However, since we cannot query the time-series data from existing events in ICM Exchange, it's also impossible for us to do any visualization for these events.

  13. Implicit SQL link between River reaches and associated storage area

    It should be possible to write a validation query to check if the lowest vertex of a River reach bank line does not lie below the ground level of the storage area it overflows to. With an implicit link between the river reach and the left and right storage areas it overflows to, the query would be easy:

    Object type: river reach
    SELECT WHERE min(leftbank.Z) < leftnode.groundlevel;
    SELECT WHERE min(right
    bank.Z) < rightnode.groundlevel;

  14. Enable TIN Reference in Scenarios (Enable/Disable)

    All other layers in XPSTORM/XPSWMM are able to be deactivated for different scenarios.

    If you could allow for the Topography tins to be activated and deactivated (like Fill Areas, Elevation Shapes etc), this will allow for multiple scenarios (i.e. pre- and post-development) and minimise the complexities of trying to model two identical scenarios on two seperate models.

  16. Expanded Arithmetic Functions in the Statistics Templates for Events

    "We are exploring possibilities of doing some post-processing within Infoworks. Right now, we are looking for an option that would summarize CSO volume with an offset instead of threshold; i.e. instead of ignoring anything smaller than a threshold and counting everything greater than that as a whole we want it to subtract a certain amount"

  17. Modelling of Pressure Sewer System Storage Vessels

    In the modelling of pressure sewer systems you often need to represent the same (standard) storage vessel (storage function) in your network over and over again. However, there is no storage tab in the node grid that would allow you to create and assign a common (named) storage function to multiple nodes.
