What's new in InfoWorks ICM 2021.6?

The team has worked hard to implement a number of updates including requested features, such as:

Up to 90% faster 2D validation and pre-processing

  • The time required to validate a network that contains thousands of mesh zones has been reduced significantly. Pre-processing times for 2D simulations with large numbers of elements can now be reduced by more than 90%.


Depth varying manning's roughness

  • The option to include roughness definitions implemented in 2021.4 has now been extended to SWMM networks. This allows users to better define ground conditions and calibrate models to different flow conditions.

New ICM 2021.6 Updates


New results selection object

  • A new results selection object has been added to allow users full flexibility with the result types being stored, reducing file sizes and reducing UI lagging when analyzing large simulations.
