2D Fast, Accurate and Detailed Surface Flood Modeling

  for InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA



Two-dimensional (2D) simulation is better suited than one-dimensional simulation (1D) for modeling flows through complex geometries (such as urban streets and buildings, road intersections and other transport infrastructure) and open ground, where either source or direction of flow is problematic to assume. In urban areas the situation is exacerbated further by the presence of sewer networks, in which flows can both enter and exit the system during flood events.

Modeling such complex flow scenarios both accurately and efficiently requires a model with both 1D and 2D engines. Using exceptionally robust and efficient numerical simulation capabilities, InfoSWMM 2D seamlessly integrates advanced 1D and 2D functionalities in one environment, enabling users to model the most complex storm and combined sewer collection systems and surface flooding with incredible ease and accuracy.  Its unparalleled 1D/2D dynamic linking capabilities give you the unprecedented power to analyze and predict potential flood extents, depth and velocity and accurately model the interaction of surface and underground systems in an integrated 1D/2D environment.

InfoSWMM 2D combines a number of distinctive features:

• Analysis and prediction of potential flood extent, depth and velocity
• Comprehensive functionality to completely model the interaction of surface and underground systems
• Fully integrated 1D and 2D modeling environments
• Multiple surface mesh design optimizes modeling flexibility and accuracy
• Multiple results views, both static and animated


InfoSWMM 2D is available as a fully-integrated add-on extension to InfoSWMM and InfoSWMM SA for comprehensive urban drainage modeling and management.
