New Modified Rational Formula in InfoSWMM

New Modified Rational Formula in InfoSWMM
InfoSWMM H2OMap SWMM now offers 12 choices for modeling surface runoff including the new Modified Rational Method (MRM)
1. EPA SWMM 5 Nonlinear Reservoir
2. The Colorado Urban Hydrograph Procedure (CUHP)
3. NRCS (SCS) Dimensionless Unit Hydrograph Method
4. NRCS (SCS) Triangular Unit Hydrograph Method
5. Delmarva Unit Hydrograph
6. Snyder Unit Hydrograph Method
7. Clark Unit Hydrograph Method
8. Espey Unit Hydrograph Method
9. Santa Barbara Urban Hydrograph Method
10. San Diego Modified Rational Method
11. Modified Rational Method (NEW!)
12. German Runoff (NEW!)
The Rational method is a widely used technique for estimation of peak flows from urban and rural drainage basins (Maidment 1993; Mays 2001). Stormwater modeling applications such as the design of detention basins require knowledge of total inflow volume obtained from runoff hydrographs. For these applications peak flow information alone may not be sufficient.  The San Diego modified rational formula is a technique adopted by the San Diego County to generate runoff hydrograph by extending the traditional rational formula. However, the San Diego Modified Rational Method (MRM) has an alternating balance hyetograph and not a constant rainfall. Starting with the release of InfoSWMM and H2Omap SWMM v13 Update 9 a new Modified Rational Method has been added with a constant Rainfall.
The peak of the runoff per Subcatchment is given by the equation Q=CIA (Figure 1).

where,
A = Subcatchment Area (hectares or acres)
C = Runoff Coefficient (dimensionless and varies from 0 to 1)
I = Rainfall Intensity (mm/hr or inch/hr)

Innovyze Releases SWMMLive and ICMLive Generation V7.0, Powering Real-Time Stormwater, Wastewater and Watershed Modeling

Innovyze Releases SWMMLive and ICMLive Generation V7.0, Powering Real-Time Stormwater, Wastewater and Watershed Modeling

Latest Release Delivers Improvements to Model Development Productivity, Insight and Performance

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, August 2, 2016

Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide release of the V7.0 Generation of its SWMMLive and ICMLive for real-time operational forecasting, modeling and management of urban drainage systems. The latest release sets the scene for the next quantum leaps in smart water modeling, giving wastewater utilities an unsurpassed tool for operating and managing their collection systems, identifying flood-vulnerable assets and formulating sound and cost-effective remediation/mitigation strategies.

SWMMLive and ICMLive combine the comprehensive urban drainage modeling capabilities of industry-leading InfoSWMM (and H2OMAP SWMM) and InfoWorks ICM, with sophisticated real-time operational forecasting, early warning, and emergency management. These powerful risk assessment and real-time decision making tools allow utilities of all sizes to operate and manage their collection systems more efficiently and effectively than ever before. They enable engineering managers and operators to consider the influence of a full range of catchment factors in three key areas: management of flooding and reduction of unregulated discharges; optimization of storage, green alternatives and existing infrastructure, leading to savings on capital works; and optimization of pumps to lower energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions.

SWMMLive can directly import any InfoSWMMH2OMAP SWMM or EPA SWMM5 project while ICMLive can seamlessly import any InfoWorks ICM project. Both are designed to work automatically. Once a system is configured, real-time data is continually and automatically harvested and quality checked. This data can be defined by a number of parameters, including observed and forecasted radar rainfall, online water quality measurements, and ancillary structure and pump operation time series. Simulations are run automatically at a user-defined frequency using the full hydrodynamic and advanced technological capabilities of InfoSWMM (and H2OMAP SWMM) and InfoWorks ICM. They include water quality assessment, pollution prediction, urban flooding, green LID and BMP alternatives, and real-time control. Simulation frequency can change in response to user-defined conditions. For example, increased rainfall intensity can trigger a reduction of the interval between simulations.

Warnings or alerts triggered during the forecast period are instantly displayed via the rich SWMMLive and ICMLive user interface, allowing system operators to see at a glance which areas need attention and what actionable options might be taken. Comparison alerts can be used to highlight differences between observed and modeled results, enabling users to refine their models — and creating unprecedented confidence in simulation results.

SWMMLive and ICMLive also allow operators to perform simulations that explore alternative real time control scenarios — such as the impact of switching on a pump earlier than planned — and quickly see the effect of these changes on the system. Users can also create Post Event Reports displaying results from automatic simulations within a specified time range for a selection of locations. This enables them to better assess the accuracy of forecasts against the latest observed data, ensuring complete confidence in the simulation run results. The wide range of capabilities inSWMMLive and ICMLive make it a key tool in the decision making process, enabling operators to take action to avoid system issues, release timely alerts, and quickly deploy response teams if necessary.

The new version also introduces a range of usability enhancements to model development productivity, insight and performance. They include direct accessibility to geocoding addresses, automatic animation of results, horizontal scrolling in long section views, support for Esri ArcGIS 10.4, and more than 25% gain in computational speed.

For a complete listing of new features and capabilities in SWMMLive and ICMLive V7.0, visit the “What’s New” section in the online help.

“The latest version of SWMMLive and ICMLive continues to improve on what is already the industry-leading product for real-time operational forecasting, modeling and management of urban and rural catchments,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, President, COO and Chief Innovation Officer of Innovyze. “The advances in this latest release confirm the products’ standing as the ultimate decision support system for operating and sustaining safe, efficient and resilient infrastructures and enabling wastewater utilities worldwide to harness the power of real-time data.”
