Introduction to InfoWorks ICM SE (UK)

This 2-day course is the starting point for anyone new to Storm and Wastewater modelling and should be considered a basic introduction to the operation of InfoWorks ICM SE. In this course participants will learn to use basic point-and-click functionality and will gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts underlying InfoWorks ICM SE and waste water modelling in general.


This is a 2-day computer hands-on training course.

Teaching Method

Participants are guided through a series of practicals by computer hands-on training.


A basic understanding of computers is required. Some familiarity with GIS or MicroSoft Office programs would be advantageous although not essential. Understanding of sewer networks would also be helpful although not a requirement.

Course Agenda

  • Database Functionality.

The database functionality of Infoworks ICM SE will be introduced and explained.  The concept of storing and moving data within a database will be detailed.

  • Navigating the Network.

Panning and zooming around the network, plus the various methods of viewing the data will be demonstrated. Interaction with other data, such as background maps, will be shown. Participants will be taught how to find and highlight data.

  • Version Control and Scenarios.

 Infoworks ICM SE contains a number of tools which provide a significant audit trails to assist the user during the model creation process. The database structure enables users to edit networks with a number of ‘what if’ scenarios which can be created and edited in parallel.  These tools will all be utilised as part of this training course.

  • Building a Network.

The attendee will be taken through the process of creating and editing a small section of urban area within a model. Arange of import methods will be covered as well as the fundamental elements of building a model.

  • Event Data.

The various types of event data such as rainfall, wastewater and inflow hydrographs will be demonstrated. 

  • Running a Simulation and Analysing the results.

Using the network and event data created above, the course attendee will be introduced to the model run options.  They will then run a range of simulations and be introduced to the numerous tools available for analysing the simulation results.

The use of obeserved flow survey information will be introduced.
