Innovyze understands that civil engineering students need to be academically and professionally prepared for an engineering career. For students and professionals alike, there is no substitute for hands-on experience. Knowing this, more and more universities are helping students gain access to state-of-the-art and practical tools used in the classroom whenever and wherever they need them. By tailoring their undergraduate and graduate courses around Innovyze technology, engineering faculty members can be assured they are helping their students have direct access to the powerful tools and latest advances in smart water resources modeling technology they need to succeed — not only in the classroom, but ultimately as professional engineers.

“Innovyze InfoWater and InfoSWMM software has become a standard for many of the world’s largest water and wastewater utilities and top engineering firms,” said Scott Yost, Ph.D., P.E., Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Kentucky. “I can see this software being used by the best engineering schools. The Student Analysis and Design Workbooks are also excellent. Having training and education in this mission-critical technology is a major asset in validating our students’ expertise to prospective employers as well as preparing them for a rewarding career.”

Built atop ArcGIS (Esri, Redlands, CA), InfoWater’s innovative network modeling technology addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. The software seamlessly integrates sophisticated predictive analytics, systems dynamics and optimization functionality directly within the powerful ArcGIS setting. From fire flow and dynamic water quality simulations, valve criticality and energy cost analysis to pressure zone management and advanced Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm optimization, the suite comes equipped with everything water utility owner-operators need to best plan, design, operate, secure and sustain their distribution systems.

InfoWater also serves as a base platform for advanced smart network modeling, operation, capital planning and asset management extensions. Among these critical applications are IWLive (real-time operations and security); InfoWater UDF (unidirectional flushing); CapPlan (risk-based capital planning); InfoMaster and InfoMaster Mobile (asset integrity management and condition assessment); InfoWater MSX (multi-species modeling); InfoWater BTX (event/particle backtracking); InfoSurge (surge/transient analysis); Sustainability (carbon footprint calculation); BalanceNet (real-time energy management and operations optimization); PressureWatch (real-time network hydraulic integrity monitoring); QualWatch (real-time network water quality integrity monitoring); SCADAWatch (real-time business intelligence and performance monitoring); DemandWatch (water demand forecasting); and DemandAnalyst (real-time water demand and diurnal pattern estimations).

As a complete ArcGIS-centric urban drainage modeling solution, 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 an enhanced version of the latest SWMM 5.1.010, which is endorsed by the USEPA and certified by FEMA. These features and more deliver 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 platform for advanced modeling, operational issues, short-term, long-range and capital planning, urban stormwater treatment and analysis, and analytics-driven asset management extensions. Some of these critical applications include InfoSWMM 2D (two-dimensional surface flood modeling), SWMMLive (real-time urban drainage modeling), CapPlan (risk-based capital planning and asset performance modeling), InfoSWMM Sustain (optimal selection and placement of LIDs/BMPs), InfoSWMM SFEM (dynamic sewer flow estimation model), InfoMaster (GIS-centric analytics-driven asset management), and RDII Analyst (rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration planning and analysis).

“Innovyze InfoSurge software utilizes the powerful Wave Characteristic Method, the fastest and most efficient algorithm for solving hydraulic transients in large and complex water distribution systems,” said Don J. Wood, Ph.D., Hon. D.WRE, Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at the University of Kentucky. “The software is being used by water utilities and top engineering firms worldwide. Having training and education in this mission-critical technology is a major asset in validating our students’ expertise to prospective employers as well as preparing them for rewarding careers.”  

Anticipating and controlling transient response is critical to ensuring the protection, integrity, and effective/efficient operation of water distribution systems. Transient responses can introduce pressures of sufficient magnitude (upsurge) to burst pipes and damage equipment. The resulting repercussions can range from extended service outages to loss of property and life. In addition, transient responses can produce subatmospheric pressures (downsurge) that could force contaminated groundwater into the distribution system at a leaky joint, crack, or break, leading to grave health consequences. Sustained subatmospheric pressures can also cause cavitation and water column separation, resulting in severe water hammer effects as the vapor cavity collapses.

The state-of-the-art, full-featured InfoSurge transient flow analysis solution delivers the highest rate of return in the industry by addressing every facet of pressure surge analysis and its role in utility infrastructure management and protection. The program utilizes the powerful Lagrangian-driven Wave Characteristic Method, with proven superior performance in both numerical accuracy of solution and computational efficiency for transient analysis of large water distribution networks. It provides the engineer-friendly framework needed to quickly assess the effects of pump station power failures, pump startups, valve closures, rapid demand and pump speed changes, then determines the efficacy of any combination of surge protection devices. Its SurgeAnimate module enables users to create live animations of pipe profiles and see and experience model transient activities in real time, helping them assess the effectiveness and strength of their systems. InfoSurge also accurately simulates transient cavitation and water column separation, evaluates their intensity, and estimates their potential effects on the system.

Armed with this information, engineers worldwide can more accurately predict the development of unacceptable operating conditions, identify vulnerable areas and risks, evaluate and design sound protective measures, and devise improved operational plans and security upgrades. The software’s blazing simulation speed and seamless GIS integration totally transform the task of transient analysis, making it simpler, more straightforward, and even enjoyable.

A comprehensive Student Design and Analysis Workbook is also included for each program. In addition to background theory, the workbooks provide step-by-step approaches to water and wastewater network model construction, simulation and analysis, and are illustrated with a variety of carefully selected case studies to reinforce the hands-on nature of learning. By representing real-life network modeling situations, the workbooks are ideal for students to familiarize themselves with the day-to-day problem-solving work in engineering practice.
