This course is aimed at anyone who is inexperienced in InfoWorks ICM and those who will be undertaking model build and verification of sewer models in accordance with the CIWEM UDG Code of Practice for the Hydraulic Modelling of Urban Drainage Systems.
The InfoWorks ICM software will be introduced, exploring the flagging functionality, connectivity and model validation tools. The attendee will explore model build requirements undertaking contributing area definition, pipe and ancillary structure modelling with initial model testing. The course will then explore assessing rain gauge and network monitor data, identifying operational issues and appropriate verification event selection.
The attendee will then be taken through the range of dry weather flow inputs to achieve the verification criteria. The course will then cover the runoff volume models for use in the UK, area take-off within InfoWorks ICM and how to set initial conditions for storm verification. Finally, historical verification for flooding and overflow performance will be undertaken.
The attendee should leave the course with a good understanding of the model build and verification process and applying these in accordance to the CIWEM UDG Code of Practice.
The courses will be conducted using WebEx/GoToTraining software, which allows two way communication between the instructor and the class.
To participate you will need two screens, one to run the software and the other to watch the presenter or their screen. A headset with microphone would also be very useful.
You will operate the software using a ‘virtual’ computer which we will provide and which you can access from your computer, whether from home or in the office. We will provide you with login details a day or so before the course starts. This virtual machine includes the software and data required to run the course. In other words, there is no need for you to install the software on your computer, to participate in the training.
Training notes will be posted to you in advance of the training.
Class sizes will be strictly limited as we understand the challenges associated with remote learning.
