Innovyze Launches Technical Webinar Series
Inaugural Eight-Week Series for Wet Infrastructure Utilities and Consultants Begins February 7
Webinars begin on February 7, 2012, and continue into September. These comprehensive one hour sessions are open to utilities and their consultants, and registration is free of charge.

With CapPlan Sewer, utilities and their consultants can maximize both their existing CCTV information and GIS data to create a prioritized rehabilitation plan. Users can choose whether to weight their plan towards current conditions or towards a calculated risk. CapPlan Sewer also includes the ability to a build multi-step decision tree flow chart of rehabilitation techniques based on current pipe condition and hydraulic capacity.

IWLive is the first product of its kind to combine hydraulic modeling, weather predictions, and current SCADA information to give water system operators a clear picture of how their system will behave in the future. IWLive can be used to propose fixes to operational problems before they occur; common examples include: water main breaks, peak demand periods, real time fire flow evaluation.

Explore InfoWorks ICM, the first software in the world to successfully combine advanced 1D and 2D modeling capabilities in a single simulation engine. It fully integrates 1D simulation of flows in rivers, open channels manholes, inlets, natural and man-made channels and pipe networks with 2D simulation of surface flooding in the urban environment and river floodplain. The resulting model contains common hydrology and can include both catchment and floodplain data.

InfoWater Sustainability and Scheduler give water utilities invaluable energy efficiency management capabilities to reduce both power costs and carbon footprint. A large percentage of energy input to a water distribution system is lost through three key areas: pipe friction (and minor losses at bends and fittings); control valves (e.g., pressure reducing and sustaining valves, flow control valves); and the customer tap failing to maintain a minimum level of pressure. By auditing these losses throughout a system, Sustainability helps engineers design a "greener" wet infrastructure. Scheduler optimizes pump schedules against both hydraulic and energy cost constraints.

Two-dimensional (2D) simulation is better suited than one-dimensional simulation (1D) for modeling flows through complex geometries. These include urban streets and buildings, road intersections and other transport infrastructure, and open ground, where either the source or direction of flow is problematic to assume. In this seminar, you'll learn how to use Innovyze tools to perform a 2D overland flow analysis.

As the rapid deterioration of underground infrastructures progresses, many utilities are struggling to develop a rehabilitation and replacement program that addresses the most critical pipes in the system. Many capital improvement programs spend millions of dollars annually on projects that do little to lower total system risk. You'll see how one off-the-shelf software package, CapPlan Water, allows utilities to use GIS, hydraulic modeling, and other enterprise data to analyze the likelihood and consequence of pipe failure in a water network — and use this information to devise risk-based capital plans.

Transients in water distribution systems are a major concern for pipeline analysis, design and operation as they have the potential to wreck or damage pipeline systems and equipment, reduce system efficiency, induce adverse water quality conditions, and threaten the integrity and quality of supply as well as public safety. Learn how to use InfoSurge to affectively diagnose and solve distribution system transient issues.

Unidirectional flushing (UDF) is the most effective way of cleaning water mains and maintaining water quality and system capacity. It also requires the least amount of water of any cleaning method. Valves are closed and hydrants opened to create a one-way flow that accelerates the speed of water in the mains, maximizing shear velocity near the pipe wall and producing a scouring action that effectively removes sediment deposits and biofilm. Learn how the automated design tools in InfoWater UDF, allow engineers to create these flushing sequences in record time.

Discovering and responding to contamination events continues to be a challenge for water utilities. Learn how InfoWater SLM can help water utilities identifify the optimal placement of online water quality monitoring sensors, IWLive can be used for monitoring and warning of possible contamination threat, and InfoWater BTX can be used for event backtracking analysis (following the detection of a contamination event) and identify the most likely source locations.

The amount of data available to sewer utility management continues to explode and drawing conclusions from it continue to be difficult. Whether the data is coming from field inspections (CCTV, manholes, smoke testing), customer service requests, repair activities, flow monitoring, GIS, or other 3rd party systems, InfoMaster can aggregate and analyze these data sources. InfoMaster is provides ArcGIS based out-of-the-box management and analysis for sewer systems and is available in desktop, server/web, and iPad/iPhone versions for ease of use by the entire enterprise.
