The software helps improve your knowledge of how infrastructure behaves as a system, how it reacts to operational strategies, and how it should grow as population and demands increase. From fire flow and water quality simulations, to criticality and energy cost analysis, OpenFlows WaterGEMS has everything you need in a flexible multiplatform environment. OpenFlows WaterGEMS provides numerous software capabilities for: Intelligent planning for system reliability: The capability of the water network to adequately serve its customers must be evaluated whenever system growth is anticipated.

With OpenFlows WaterGEMS, effectively identify potential problem areas, accommodate service area growth, and plan capital improvements. Optimized operations for system efficiency: Realistically modeling the operation of complex water systems can be difficult.

With OpenFlows WaterGEMS, model pump accurately, optimize pumping strategies, and plan shutdowns and routine operations to minimize disruption. Reliable asset renewal decision support for system sustainability: When it comes time to renew or replace your water infrastructure, the amount of asset-related information you must consider can be overwhelming. OpenFlows WaterGEMS capabilities such as Pipe Renewal Planner makes the task much easier by analyzing and comparing a wide range of variables to prioritize renewal decisions.

Capabilities Analyze pipe and valve criticality Find the weak links in water distribution systems and assess the adequacy of isolation valves. Evaluate the ability to isolate portions of the system and serve customers using different valve locations. Design improvements such as the sizing and location of pipes, pumps, and tanks in order to meet fire-flow and protection requirements. Build and manage hydraulic models Jumpstart the model-building process and manage your model effectively so that you can focus on making the best engineering decisions.

Leverage and import many well known external data formats, which maximizes ROI on geospatial and engineering data and automates input data generation. Design water distribution systems Use hydraulic model results to help optimize the design of complex water distribution systems and utilize built-in scenario management features to keep track of design alternatives. Increase velocity in mains to flush out solids and stale water, with the primary indicator of the success of flushing being the maximum velocity achieved in any pipe during the flushing operation.

Study the amount by which you can expect to reduce leakage by reducing pressure and see the impact on customer service. Minimize energy related to pumping costs while maximizing system performance. Pipe links are ranked based on several aspects, including property- and performance-based criteria. Benefits that result include improved asset planning, increased distribution capacity, and maximum returns on capital expenditures. Use this real-time model to keep an eye on the system and help ensure it is operating effectively.

WaterGEMS Tutorial: Model Applications and System Planning

What is the software used for? They consist of the following items: Options Descriptions Flow Units Units in which nodal demands and link flow rates are expressed. Choosing units in gallons, cubic feet, or acre-feet implies that the units for all other network quantities are Customary US. Selecting liters or cubic meters causes all other units to be SI metric. Use caution when changing flow units as it might affect all other data supplied to the project. Options Description Headloss Formula Formula used to compute headloss as a function of flow rate in a pipe. The welcome dialog box opens.
