  1. Modelling of mud and other non-Newtonian flows

    We've a lot of work at the moment modelling the failure of tailings dams. Tailings dams typically have material that acts in a non-Newtonian manner. To effectively model these sorts of fluids would require the inclusion of additional fluid properties. The Bingham method (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bingham_plastic) has been successfully applied in other applications.

  2. Auto-space custom labels

    We use custom labels a lot in reporting how we model ancillaries, and for complex assets spend a long time adjusting labels so they don't overlap and do show up properly.
    It would be great if a more "smart" label engine could be used so that labels don't overlap each other, and a few simple other rules e.g. as close to the object as possible, avoid line crossing, and automatically show any newly generated label within the current view extent.

  3. Merge more than two polygon in one go

    Merging polygons representing for instance mesh zones can help reducing the number of triangles, particularly small ones, and reduce simulation time. The version of ICM I am using can only merge two polygons at the time. I currently do the polygon merge as part of my data pre-processing before importing the data into ICM as I can merge more than two polygons at the time. However, it would be useful to be able merge several polygons in one go in ICM.

  4. RTC updated to support scripting

    It would be good to have RTCs available through direct scripting rather than through the RTC editor alone.

  5. Use edit flag for selection of fields only

    By using the Use edit flag option, all changed fields are now set to the edit flag. For a lot of fields (for example the us and ds node or the suffix) it is not necessary to set this flag to the Edit flag.

  6. Inverse Distance Weightage in ICM

    We have Thiessen in ICM. It will be great if we have IDW like what we have in RS.

  7. Create selection list from level or inflow events

    In some of our older or larger models the number of profiles in level or inflow events have grown to > 100. Through the time quite a number of these have become obsolete because of consecutive model updates (resulting in many log warnings), but it is a very painstaking task to check them all one by one. Therefore it would be a big help if there were a possibility to create a selection list from these events that contains all the profile IDs (and vice versa to create a new event with profiles based on an existing selection list).

  8. Tile only for selected windows

    Choose which Windows are used for Tile Horizontally or Tile Vertically. If a Geoplan and two Long Sections are open, we want to tile only the Long Sections, so a selection for the tiling would be useful.

  10. User defined results fields

    Can we have user defined results fields? these would allow us to generate time series results that could include the total flows from a series of subcatchments or the total flow going to a node. another example is where we are required to generate a WQ 'score' where the score is a combination of a number of water quality parameters. There would be implications for live modelling as well. We'd be comfortable with having to write a SQL to get what we need.

    Thanks for this idea, while it can already be done for themes, extending this out for results generation sounds good. The assumption is that a retrospectively applied SQL to populate User Text 1 with the desired result isn’t sufficient for this requirement?

  11. River reach theming

    It would be great if a river reach could be themed individually across the left and right banks and if theming were more flexible for storage areas too.

  12. Intelligently select nodes in river reaches

    When clicking on a node over a subcatchment, the software can recognise the user is after the node. When the same is done for a node on a river reach, the node is not automatically selected but rather the choice is presented to the user.

  13. Infer ground levels only for non existent entries

    At the moment it is possible to infer ground levels for several object types, but it tends to be either infer all entries from ground level or none, it would be good if only the non entered values were inferred. You might have survey data to a point and want to infer from ground level above this.

  14. Simple means to set initial storage area water surface elevations

    Please incorporate a system for setting initial water surface elevations in storage nodes that works as easily as the process is in XPSWMM or HEC-RAS. The program should hold this water level during warm-up stabilization.

  15. NOAA Atlas 14 Rainfall Designer

    With NOAA Atlas 14 available in Texas and most of the United States - I would like to get a NOAA Atlas 14 rainfall designer in InfoWorks ICM. [The SCS Design rainfall is no longer applicable]

  16. Refine selection to include subcatchments draining to multiple links or other subcatchments

    Subcatchments draining to a single link can already be added to an existing selection of node and links by using the refine option, if the upstream node of that link is selected. It would be interesting to have a similar extension for subcatchments draining to multiple links or to other subcatchments. E.g. when I select part of a network by routing and I want to know the total contributing area of it, regardless of the connecting mode of the subcatchments.

  17. Automatically add network details when copying a network from commit history

    When a version of a network is copied via the commit history dialog box, the standard commit detail generated is "created from copy". Could this be extended by automatically inserting the original network name and version number ? It would help a lot in retracing the network history.

  18. Hyperlinks to specific pages not just files/documents

    When adding hyperlinks to features within the properties, enable the ability to link to a specific page within the document itself rather than just a folder location or document opening on the first page.

  20. Can ICM add particle tracking module?

    When there are pollutants that enter a system from various sources then it would be good to have pollutant tracing functionality which shows the source and the pollutant moving through the system, giving an idea of the rate at which it travels and impacts areas downstream.
