      GPU runtime results for 2D InfoWorks ICM models (2016 update)

      gpuIt’s been almost four years since I first published a blog on run times for 2D simulations conducted on GPU cards back in December 2012. Since that time, NVIDIA have continually evolved their GPU technology. By comparison, over the same period of time, the CPU world has gone rather flat in terms of outright speed improvements.

      InfoWorks ICM is able to leverage technological improvements as new GPU cards come onto the market. The tables below show runtimes for two of our standard 2D testing models. Each model was run on NVidia GeForce 970 and 1080 cards, on an NVidia Quadro K5200 card and on a TESLA K20c card. Continue reading

        German Hydrology in InfoSWMM 14.5 and H2OMAP SWMM 14.5

        This blog describes how the German Runoff hydrology converts precipitation excess (rainfall and/or snowmelt less infiltration, evaporation, and initial abstraction) into surface runoff (overland flow). InfoSWMM is a distributed model as it allows a study area to be subdivided into any number of irregularly shaped Subcatchment areas to best capture the effect that spatial variability in rainfall, topography, drainage pathways, land cover, and soil characteristics have on runoff generation. Generation of runoff is therefore computed on a Subcatchment by Subcatchment basis with the option of having the runoff go to a node or another Subcatchment.  All of the ancillary processes possible in InfoSWMM: LID’s, 5 types of infiltration (Horton, Modified Horton, Green Ampt, Modified Green Ampt and SCS CN), groundwater, evaporation, snowmelt, 2D processes and water quality are active and used in the German Hydrology Option.

          Pump Controls in InfoSewer and H2OMAP Sewer

          Water Pump

          Five ways to control the pump by controls in InfoSewer and H2OMAP Sewer. Here are a few examples and important features of the various InfoSewer Pump Controls. A pump in InfoSewer and H2OMAP Sewer uses a Newton-Raphson iteration process for 50 iterations or until the successive iterations between pump flows are 0.001 cfs.

          • By Volume – control the pump by the pump volume (cubic feet or cubic meters). The on and off settings, pump curve and the iteration process applying to pumps are the controlling simulation features.
          • By Level – control the pump by the pump level or depth ( feet or meters). The on and off settings, pump curve and the iteration process applying to pumps are the controlling simulation features.
          • By Discharge – control the pump by the pump pattern in flow units. The pump pattern (discharge), pump curve and the iteration process applying to pumps are the controlling simulation features. The pump speed adjusts to main the pump pattern.
          • By Inflow – control the pump by the inflow to the Wet Well. The Wet Well inflow, the iteration process applying to pumps are the controlling simulation features. The pump flow equals the inflow to the Wet Well and the Wet Well stays at a constant level.
          • By Time – control the pump by the time speed pattern. The pump curve is used when the pump is turned on by the pattern.

            Import of German ISYBAU XML 2006 Files using a new tool in the InfoSWMM Exchange Menu

            InfoSWMM_medium

            Globally, aging water and wastewater infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating and sometimes failing, with potentially dire human, environmental and financial consequences.  A vital background to investigating and understanding the infrastructure is having inspection data and images, the infrastructure history and the hydraulic characteristics of the infrastructure.  A key format in Germany and Europe is the ISYBAU 2006 XML format.  ISYBAU is an acronym based on the words “Integriertes DV-System-Bauwesen” or “Integrated IT System-Building”.  ISYBAU was a collaboration of German federal and state governments, the late 1980s and early 1990s to help document and understand the wastewater infrastructure.  This blog describes a new InfoSWMM Exchange tool (Figure 1) to import the ISYBAU hydraulic data which is one of the eight Tags für Datenkollektive or layers in the ISYBAU XML file (Figure 2 and Figure 3).  The XML file can be also be read with Excel and has tags and hot links to both DWG/DXF files and inspection images.

            InfoSWMM allows you to use the Windows Regional Settings for either German, Spanish, French or Italian (Figure 4).  The dialogs, attribute browser and InfoSWMM menus will be in the selected language.  This is not necessary for the import but allows the XML data imported from ISBYBAU to be better understood in the InfoSWMM Interface.

              Stochastic flood maps in InfoWorks ICM

              Flood hazard maps are usually based on a unique flood extent generated by running deterministic models for a single set if boundary inputs. However, various factors can affect drainage systems and the flood hazard map generated is not generally unique. To overcome this issue, a methodology to generate stochastic flood maps with InfoWorks ICM was recently published in the Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment Journal:
              http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00477-016-1283-x

              This methodology considers the variable capacity of sewer inlets to generate flood hazard maps and was tested in the Zona Central catchment, Coimbra, Portugal. This catchment had suffered from several floods that have essentially been caused by the limited capacity of sewer inlets due to steep slopes and clogging during rainfall events. The catchment has an area of approximately 1.5 km2 and the ICM model includes 1008 inlets.

              The methodology presented is based on running several simulations with variable capacity of the sewer inlets prone to clogging. After the identification of the critical inlets prone to clogging, their maximum capacity was considered variable according to a probabilistic distribution (Beta-PERT). Then, each run is based on a set of simulations which consider the overall results and therefore dictate a flood probability. In more detail, Monte Carlo analysis are carried out to define the number of simulations necessary for stable results. The results are based on the analysis of the maximum water depth of 2D elements, which are considered flooded if the water depth is higher than a defined threshold. In the end, each 2D element have a probability of flooding according to the set of simulations analysed. Continue reading

                Innovyze Workgroup Data Server (WDS)

                Overview of the Innovyze Workgroup Data Server (WDS)

                The Innovyze Workgroup Data Server is a server component which manages access to Workgroup databases from InfoWorks ICM and InfoNet Clients. The Data Server is designed to improve the performance and reliability of database operations in a Workgroup environment.

                Innovyze Workgroup Data Server (WDS)

                Prerequisites: Hardware: Physical or virtual server running a 64 bit Windows Server operating system.
                Compatible 64-bit OS: Server OS: Windows Server 2012 R2 or later.
                Hardware Requirements: Processor: At least two cores for physical or virtual server.
                Memory/RAM: A minimum of 4GB of RAM, more recommended if database size is large. For standard databases for maximum performance on a physical machine you would have more RAM than the size of the largest network WDB file on the server up to about 16GB. If pushed for a recommendation we would say 16GB for a physical server and start with 4GB allocated for a virtual server, then monitor memory usage and increase if necessary.
                Disk Space/Location: For best performance and reliability the directory used to store standard databases (default C:\ProgramData\Innovyze\SNumbatData) should local to the machine running the Workgroup Data Server (WDS). It should not be on a file share.
                Networking: The Workgroup Client software communicates with the WorkgroupData Server using TCP/IP. By default, the port used is 40000. The port number may be changed if required.

                    Cross Network SQLs – Running an SQL Query Across Multiple Networks

                    It is possible to run an SQL query across more than one network. This can be achieved by selecting the main menu Tools > Run Query Across Multiple Networks. Let say I am interested in knowing the total length of pipes in a number of networks.

                    The query I’d write for one network might look something as follows.

                      InfoWorks ICM 7.0 comes with the Clark Unit Hydrograph routing model

                      InfoWorks ICM 7.0 was recently released and amongst many new features, a new hydrological model is now available. Innovyze responded to requests from our user community and implemented the Clark Unit Hydrograph routing model.

                      Runoff routing models simulate stormwater flow along overland surfaces. ICM includes the most complete solutions in the market for runoff routing, as it can simulate runoff directly on the 2D overland mesh and on delineated catchments. The first approach applies the rainfall directly on the 2D mesh and runoff is simulated within the 2D model. The second approach based on catchments is the traditional way of modelling runoff routing and ICM includes the following models: Clark, Desbordes, Kadoya, Large Contributing Area, Non-Linear Routing, ReFH Unit Hydrograph, SCS Unit Hydrograph, Snyder Unit Hydrograph, SPRINT, SWMM, Unit Hydrograph, Wallingford Runoff Routing, Rational Routing. The Clark Unit Hydrograph model was the last one added to this list and was requested by several members of our modelling community, mainly from the USA.
