InfoSWMM Version 12 Revs Up Modeling Performance With HEC-22 and 64-Bit Support

Latest Software Release Supports Faster Time to Design and Lower Analysis Costs

Broomfield, Colorado, USA, July 25, 2012

In its ongoing quest to equip the wastewater industry with the world’s most comprehensive and innovative smart network modeling and management solutions, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced the worldwide availability of the V12 Generation of its industry-leading InfoSWMM for ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA). InfoSWMM V12 enables engineers to work more efficiently and reliably with very large and complex network models, thanks to improvements in such areas as HEC-22 inlet support, built-in 64-bit simulation, enhanced water quality modeling, and batch run scenario management that will positively impact modeling teams each and every day.

The only urban drainage modeling solution certified by the National Association of GIS-centric Software, the full-featured InfoSWMM analysis and design program delivers the highest rate of return in the industry. All operations of a typical sewer system — from analysis and design to management functions such as water quality assessment, pollution prediction, sediment transport and deposition, urban flooding, real-time control, and record keeping — are addressed in a single, fully integrated geoengineering environment. The program’s powerful hydraulic and water quality computational engine is based on the current SWMM 5 version, which is endorsed by the USEPA and certified by FEMA. These features and more result in an enhanced modeling experience and greater realism of displayed results — advantages that translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, higher accuracy, better efficiency, and improved designs.

InfoSWMM also serves as a robust base platform for advanced modeling, operational, capital planning, and analytics-driven asset management extensions. Some of these critical applications include InfoSWMM 2D (two-dimensional surface flood modeling), CapPlan (risk-based capital planning and asset performance modeling), InfoMaster (GIS-centric asset management), and RDII Analyst (rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration planning and analysis).

The release of InfoSWMM V12 extends previous generations’ capabilities with significant modeling enhancements and groundbreaking innovations in geoengineering productivity and efficiency. These improvements greatly simplify, accelerate, and integrate urban drainage network engineering, helping wastewater engineers develop better designs and operational improvements faster. Key new built-in modeling and computational tools include:

  • ability to explicitly model five HEC-22 inlet types connecting overland and underground systems (continuous grate inlet, continuous curb-opening inlet, sag grate inlet, sag curb-opening inlet and sag combination inlet),
  • complete 64-bit functionality resulting in faster simulation runs,
  • enhanced hydrogen sulfide and corrosion modeling,
  • flexibility in run time scheduling, 
  • direct control of the number of dynamic solution threads or cores for parallel processing, and
  • ability to run multiple scenarios in batch mode at one time or to schedule the model runs at future times.

“Our priorities have always been to advance the frontiers of smart network modeling technology and support our customers’ successes by helping them be more productive and competitive,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President and Chief Operating Officer of Innovyze. “This major InfoSWMM release delivers on our promise to equip our customers with the ultimate ArcGIS-centric decision support tool for sewer collection and urban drainage systems. Like its predecessors, InfoSWMM V12 sets a new standard for quality and high-performance network modeling and management with unrivaled power, cutting-edge capabilities, rich functionality, and ease of use. From top to bottom, this release is designed for record modeling performance that enables users to increase their productivity and quality while achieving their engineering and business goals.”
