InfoSWMM v11.1 Changes to Date

InfoSWMM v11.1:
Support ArcGIS 10.1. InfoSWMM or H2OMAP SWMM import: corrected the typos in error messages. (HsHxfSvr.dll, N/A, 6/22/2012) Improvement: for better hours/minutes listing in Report Manager Report Table for Continuous Simulation with Odd Report Time Step Intervals.  For example, this fix improved the output time display for irregular (in
60 minute sense) output time steps.  Now it displays 00:50, 01:40, etc. more correctly than before (00:49, 01:39, etc). (HsOutPkg.dll, N/A, 6/21/2012) Improvement or Bug Fix: Added an IF statement to the RDII Unit Hydrograph Convolution for the  rare instances in which the user sets the time base of the UH to zero by setting either T or K to zero.  The Time Base is T*K in the
convolution integral and zero values are not allowed.  This bug was also forwarded to the EPA for a future SWMM 5.  The convolution uses the value of R and the Time Base to estimate the amount of Infiltration and
Inflow in the Sewer Network.  The short, medium and …

How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?by dickinsonreSubject:  How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?
The Real Time Control Rule for Orifice Setting can be a function of a Setting constant, Setting from a Curve, Setting from a PID controller and a Setting from a Time Series (Figure 1).    The Setting affects the Full Depth of the Orifice at each time step.  The setting which ranges from 0 to 1 can either completely close or open theorifice (Figure 2).   You will have to use the equivalent in ICM or else the settings derived from the SWMM 5 time series need to be multiplied by the orifice depth to have the same effect in ICM that it had in SWMM 5.

How to Simulate Pipe Blockage in InfoSewer

Subject:  How to Simulate Pipe Blockage in InfoSewer

For making one or more of your pumps inactive you just need to use the Facility Manager and make the pumps inactive (the grey lines in Figure 2).   The other method of making the gravity mains have a really small diameter will not work as the flow is pushed through anyway and the value of q/Q full is very high.   One way to do what you want to do is to use a Flow Split and make the flow in the blocked link very small as a fraction of the incoming flow.   You will need to add a new link and out fall to handle the excess flow from the pipe blockage (Figure 1).

Subject:  How to Use the H2OMAP SWMM Calibrator for RTK Calibration
Step 1.Initial Guess of the RTK data as the start of the Messy Genetic Algorithm process

Step 2. Use Min and Max Bounds of 50 and 150 Respectively and Apply the Solution at each iteration

Step 3. Check the Comparison Graph and Correlation Coefficient at Each Step


Step 4.  It should take just a few iterations if you have a good estimate of the initial RTK parameters

Step 5. Final Values with a Rsquare of 0.96 between Observed and Simulated
