InfoWater 2D – The Comprehensive Solution for Water Main Breaks

When a water main breaks, the utility has to figure out an emergency response plan within a short period of time. Numerous analyses including hydraulic simulation are required to answer the following questions:

  • How to isolate the broken water main?
  • How large is the main break flow?
  • How much is the total water volume loss/spill?
  • What is the flood extent/flow path due to the main break?
  • What is the maximum flood depth due to the main break?
  • How to assess the damage to properties from flooding?

InfoWater 2D provides a comprehensive solution to address all these questions.

The user can do a break analysis to get the break flow and volume with a few clicks of selecting the target pipe, specifying the break time and the break location, running the break analysis, and viewing the break graph.

The user can then perform a detailed 2D hydraulic simulation by defining a flooding scope, creating a mesh, specifying 2D boundary conditions, running the 2D simulation, and viewing the flow path, maximum depth, and other 2D hydraulic parameters.

The user can also produce a property damage report based on the maximum flood depth from the 2D simulation outputs.
