Conduct Advanced 1D/2D Modeling
Hydraulic and hydrologic modeling is fundamental to drainage analysis and flood risk assessments. The Innovyze portfolio of advanced modeling solutions empowers you to build models that you can trust. InfoWorks ICM and XPSWMM employ coupled 1D/2D modeling to accurately depict stormwater, sewer, and overland flows. This can give you a better understanding of which areas are prone to flood. With Innovyze solutions, you can simulate intense storm patterns to evaluate where system stresses would emerge. In turn, you are enabled to develop resiliency plans when faced with high flood risk potential.
Make Confident Decisions with Real-Time Flood Forecasting
The combination of InfoWorks ICM and ICMLive enables you to conduct near-real-time operational forecasting, receive early warnings, and plan for emergency management. Using these tools, you and your team can employ confident and proactive decision making for addressing flood risks. Activate the potential of live modeling with ICMLive. It integrates current field instrumentation readings and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems with hydraulic models and rainfall forecast data. This information – based on near-real-time information and radar forecasts – gives you a glimpse into how future rainfall will impact likelihood of flooding. Your model outputs help identify the pre-emptive actions operators can take to reduce the chances of floods or overflows.
Identify Critical Facilities that Might be at Risk
Innovyze software can seamlessly exchange data from multiple sources. You can import all your GIS and existing model data. With this baseline for your model, you can add even more system elements to conduct a thorough analysis in the face of extreme storm patterns. Use InfoWorks ICM to calculate potential damage caused by specific flood events. You can identify which critical infrastructure – like highways, dams, and bridges – may be at risk during intense storms or floods. With XPSWMM, you can define high pedestrian hazard areas and compute the best evacuation routes from critical facilitie
Perform Accurate Floodplain Mapping
Innovyze solutions make use of dynamic and probabilistic modeling simulations to ensure that you are accurately representing what could happen during flood events.
Leave static analysis behind as advanced computational technology provides modelers with significantly more accurate methods for in-floodplain mapping.
Tested and approved by regulatory institutions, XPSWMM empowers modelers to confidently develop floodplain maps. Your team can actively evaluate the risks associated with both nuisance flooding and federal designated floodplain zones.
Test Flood Risk Mitigation with Powerful Scenario Management
It’s impossible to know every outcome from storm scenarios, but with the right tool you can confidently analyze a wide range of simulation outputs to select the best course for action. InfoWorks ICM can distribute model simulations across a networked environment of licensed machines and XPSWMM can run multiple simulations in parallel to compare a variety of outcomes. Simply set your models to run in the background while you continue to work and analyze the comparative results when they are ready. Using this information, you can actively plan for mitigation strategies with model outputs that have been vetted for reduction in estimated annual damage, lower flood heights, or shorter flood durations. Find the right engineering solutions to identify the best course of action with extensive optioneering. The ends result lets you employ cost-effective flood reduction strategies and actively plan for better operations in the future.
