InfoDrainage is an advanced full design and analysis solution used to design and audit drainage systems. It delivers speedy, sustainable, cost-effective, and compliant designs with tailored reports for compliance that accelerates the building information modeling (BIM) cycle.
InfoDrainage provides a true-to-site view where users can see the accurate extent of a pond, how the under-drain connects swales, and the exact lengths of pipes. The technology includes built-in detailed hydraulic analysis for pipes, manholes, storage, and green infrastructure to reduce the risk of flooding downstream.
It also offers templates that make designing drainage systems easy, and validation tools that provide solutions to potential problems.
InfoDrainage easily integrates with Civil 3D, allowing for round-trip interoperability to update pipe networks and surfaces. Its 3D view allows users to display objects in 3D with real-time animations. It is recommended that users dedicate a video card with at least 1 GB of VRAM to support this.
After completing this course, you'll be able to:
- Prepare surface models for drainage design.
- Add and connect drainage system objects to the model, developing a flow path.
- Design pipe systems to meet maximum rainfall intensities and stormwater controls to prevent overflow.
- Design for sustainable drainage systems and exceedance.
