  1. Integrate a Template option for setting out run group in Infoworks ICM

    I am working on project which includes 50 models. where we have to give runs for different return periods and durations for each model. It is a time taking process, which unnecessarily create chances of error by creating run setup every time. is it possible to include a run set up template, which can be changed as per the user requirement and saved for the further use.?

  3. Speed up the creation/amending of ICMTs

    Creating or amending ICMTs is slow, especially if they contain ground models. Even deleting or creating new 'folder' items in ICMTs is slow. Speeding this process up would increase productivity.

  4. Include weirs and orifices in xpswmm ensemble statistics

    Please include weirs and orifices in the ARR Ensemble Statistics summary. Currently, only conduits or natural channels are included.

  5. ICM Status bar to show more significant figures

    The status bar currently only displays levels (ground model level, water depth) to 1 decimal place. 2 Decimal places would be much more useful, Especially to ensure a node is at a low point or in the gutter invert..

  6. Reintroduce ICM 11 searching for a viewer licence if a full licence isn't available

    We use ICM version 7, 9 and 11 as per client requirements. We have 2 full licences and 2 viewer licences. When the full licences were already in use, ICM version 7 and 9 would automatically open with a viewer licence. This doesn't happen anymore with ICM 11 and I have to switch between different licence types through the licence key setup each time. Can you bring back the function from ICM 7 and 9?

  7. I want Long-Sections of a pipe to show the unconnected pipes which cross

    On a Long-Section of a pipe, I would like ICM to show the unconnected pipes which cross that long-section. This would illustrate potential pipe clashes.

    I imagine the unconnected pipes would be shown as circles on the long-section similar to how connected pipes are currently shown.

    Interesting idea.

    We need more information on the problem of pipe clashes. Are these unconnected pipes in the model or are they referencing Asset networks, or Water networks?

    How granular of a view does one need? I.e. are you interesting in generally where these crossing occur, or are you trying to identify how close you can cross something else?

  8. Restrict use of a simulation server to specific users - to give priority to certain workflows

    In a workgroup setting with ICM with several simulation servers it is possible to limit a named group of simulation servers (a "group" can be just one server) for use with specific ICM model databases.

    We would like to be able to limit use of a server group to specific users who will be working on many databases over a period of time. We don't want to restrict other users from running models in these databases; they can run on other servers.

  9. Ability to access databases where Workgroup Data Server and databases don't reside on same server

    With the large amounts of data generated it would be beneficial if a supported configuration would be to have a WDS installed on a server but pointing at databases (and solves etc) over the network on a remote storage system (such as NAS). This would make the whole solution far more scalable as the need arose.

  10. Have multiple Workgroup Data Servers

    I want to be able to segregate databases between different parts of the business so they only have visibility of, and access those specific to them. Having the ability to install multiple WDS on a single server makes sense from a cost/configuration/data segregation perspective but currently this isn't possible.

  11. Detention Time Modelling

    We would like the model to calculate detention time of sewer in a simulation. The idea is similar to water age calculation in WS. The aim is to use this as a proxy for odour study, in essence we would like to be able to create thematic maps to show where sewer is older, where it gets diluted with fresh, non-pumped, sewer and so on

  12. Support for overlapping roughness zones in 2D

    I have a model that has masses of roughness polygons. invariably some of these overlap. I also have overlapping roughness zones where I have 'donut' features. My life would be SO much easier if meshing didn't fail when the roughness zones overlap. Can we p[ease have the restriction on these relaxed? If we have to specify a priority then that would be acceptable. It doesn't seem to be a problem with HEC-RAS or TUFLOW.... :-)

  14. Attribute table copy function

    A better copy function between networks might be usefull: e.g. Also copy the 'link head discharge' or 'conduit shape geometry' tables when copying a link from one network to an other. Or at least a popup allowing you to select which lists to copy or not.

  15. Run SQL Query across multiple simulation results

    Similar to how ICM lets me run a SQL query across multiple networks, I want to use SQL to summarize results in a custom way across multiple simulation results objects.

    Ideally they could be joined in one table similar to the way one can query from sim.depnode and sim2.depnode when an alternate results is applied to the map. But simply running a query on each simulation in isolation would be helpful as well

  16. Assign Channel shape from ground model using cross section

    In ICM I can sample elevations from ground model to cross section line and use that for river reaches, but sometimes I just want to use simple Channel links or maybe I'm using the SWMM engine which doesn't have rivers.

    I want to pull the channel shape profile from a cross section line on the map to quickly configure simple 1D storm systems.

  17. Set up runs more efficiently

    Is there a matrix type tool in ICM that allows you to easily set up complicated run set ups? i.e. for this 1 Model Network, these runs with use these rainfall files, inflow files, WWG, etc are needed.

    Model Name
    Base Model

    Rainfall Inflow WWG Tradeflows
    M5-30 Inf-M5-30 WWG1 Trade1
    M5-240 Inf-M5-240 WWG1 Trade1
    M5-960 Inf-M5-960 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-30 Inf-M10-30 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-240 Inf-M10-240 WWG1 Trade1
    M10-960Inf-M10-960 WWG1 Trade1

    With same timesteps and 2D parameters?

  18. Can the simulation log file be broken up into sections

    Can the simulation log file be broken up into sections, as models get bigger and many with several 2d zone trying to find what is actual causing a simulations failure is becoming a bit more difficult having to scroll through big log files for that one line of information. Im thinking a summary sheet on why sim failed, along with a 1d, 2d possible river as well. Would help you look for issues.

  20. Incorporate ARR2019 Initial Loss & Continuing Loss (IL/CL) infilitration type for 2D Infiltration surfaces

    ICM currently allows 4 infiltration types in 2D infiltration types:

    -fixed
    -Horton
    -Constinf
    -GreenAmpt

    Australian Rainfall and Runoff 2019 talks default initial loss and continuing loss parameters for rural catchments, values for which which can be found in the BOM data hub.

    A new 2D infiltration type which allows the simple IL/CL would allow 2D modelling more inline with ARR2019.
