This blog contrasts the St Venant Solutions for InfoSewerH20Map Sewer (1), InfoSWMM/H2OMap SWMM and ICM/ICM SE. 1.  Assumptions for the St. Venant EquationsThe assumptions behind Lumped and Distributed Models along with the assumptions of the St Venant equations.  InfoSewerH20Map Sewer, InfoSWMM, H2OMap SWMM, SWMM5, ICM and ICM SE are all Distributed models for Unsteady flow.  InfoSWMM and InfoSewerH20Map Sewer have options for direct steady flow.  ICM and InfoSWMM can also use a quasi steady flow solution.   All of these Innovyze models use the Continuity Equation and Momentum equation for routing flows in links.  The numerical solution differs between the three Innovyze main  platforms: InfoSewer and H2OMap SewerInfoSWMM,  H2OMap SWMM and SWMM 5ICM and ICM SE

InfoSewer - Minimum Travel Distance

InfoSewer - Minimum Travel Distance Note:   The minimum travel distance in an InfoSewer or H2OMap Sewer model can be related to the mean link length in the Pipe DB Table.  Here is a table of the Mass balance check for one network versus the minimum travel distance in feet for the default values of network accuracy, minimum time length and maximum number of segments at a report time step of 1 hour.   As you can see making the Minimum Travel equal to the mode of the length histogram yields the best results even for the default model parameters.

How to Make an InfoSewer or H2OMap Sewer Model from SWMM5

Image
Innovyze has a broad range of programs which you can see on www.innovyze.com but each of our programs has many ways to import and export model data between programs.  All of our products have CSV and shapefile import and export.  One way to use a SWMM 5 model in H2OMap Sewer or InfoSewer is to import CSV files from H2OMap SWMM or CSV file constructed using SWMM 5.  In H2OMap Sewer you can import:
1. Manhole
2. Pipe
3. Outfall
4. Pump
5. Wet Wells
6. The DWF values can  copied to the Other Loading DB Table
7. DWF Patterns can be copied and pasted into the Pattern Tables in H2OMap Sewer and InfoSewer


Reasons to use the Advanced Force Main Network Support Option in InfoSewer and H20Map Sewer

See the image for the two main reasons but another reason is that you get a better continuity error with this new(er) feature or option in InfoSewer
