Bentley Systems announces the release of new software products developed specifically for the analysis and design of wastewater and stormwater systems. Bentley specialises in comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure.
The new software releases include SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, and StormCAD V8i (SELECTseries 4), all providing advanced hydraulic and operational capabilities for an increased depth of information modelling that empowers users to make better-informed decisions in terms of cost, time, and efficiency resulting in better system performance. The SELECTseries 4 releases also help streamline the information modelling process saving time and money.
Gregg Herrin, Bentley director, product management explains that the SELECTseries 4 releases of SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, and StormCAD V8i enable users to evaluate every aspect of existing systems, compare possible new designs and employ simulations to predict everything from flooding to hydrogen sulphide formation, and then assess the effect of alternative designs to alleviate problems.
New functionalities enable users to create their models faster so that their time is better spent on analysis and design instead of data management.
The new functionality in the SELECTseries 4 releases provides users with the following capabilities:
SewerGEMS users can leverage SCADA systems and data loggers through SCADAConnect, supporting calibration and operational efforts; and model hydrogen sulphide formation to decrease the risk of pipe damage, prevent odour complaints, and improve safety.
SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, and StormCAD users can conveniently trace and display the surface water flow direction across any terrain, ensuring proper location of inlets and other drainage infrastructure; import MX drainage files easily and efficiently, facilitating ready access to the data; automatically assign elevation data to manhole elements for faster model building and updating; and model headwalls and endwalls for culverts more efficiently.
SewerGEMS and CivilStorm users can design stormwater ponds more quickly and easily using PondMaker.
SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, and CivilStorm users can now utilise ILSAX hydrologic calculations.
Users of any of the new SELECTseries 4 releases now benefit from the products’ support of AutoCAD 2015, giving them the ability to model from within the latest AutoCAD version.
