Urban Sanitary and Combined Sewer Modeling and Management


What's new in SewerGEMS?

Bentley offers the first and only urban sewer modeling solution with AutoCAD support and ArcGIS, MicroStation, and stand-alone interoperability.

SewerGEMS V8i joins WaterGEMS and HAMMER as the only water resources modeling software to run within AutoCAD, ArcGIS, and MicroStation, or as a stand-alone application, underscoring Bentley’s commitment to interoperability.

“As an engineer, I always want to leave as many doors open as possible,” said Jonathan Bedsole, PE, Staff Engineer at Athens Utilities Water Services in Alabama. “When I began looking for a wastewater model, I wanted to be able to integrate a model into AutoCAD and ArcGIS. SewerGEMS met that need as well as adding flexibility with a stand-alone platform.”


Key new features in SewerGEMS V8i (SELECTseries 3):

INTEROPERABILITY

Common file format with other Bentley sewer and stormwater products: With SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, and StormCAD's new unified file format, the .stws file replaces the .swg, swc, csd, and .stc files. This common file format makes modeling teams’ workflows more efficient, since a model created in any one of these products can now be seamlessly opened and edited in another.

Updated support for ArcGIS: You can run SewerGEMS from within ArcGIS 10.2, 10.1, and 10. An ArcGIS license is required – if you don't have an ArcGIS license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in its stand-alone mode.

Updated support for MicroStation: You can run SewerGEMS from within MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3). A MicroStation license is required – if you don't have a MicroStation license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in its stand-alone mode.

Updated support for AutoCAD: You can run SewerGEMS from within AutoCAD 2014 (32- and 64-bit), in addition to AutoCAD 2012 and 2013. An AutoCAD license is required – if you don't have an AutoCAD license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in its stand-alone mode.

i-models publishing: SewerGEMS can now publish i-models (containers for the open exchange of infrastructure information) in 2D or 3D.

HYDRAULICS

Multiple solvers: The SewerCAD and StormCAD solvers (gradually varied flow convex and gradually varied flow rational) are now included in SewerGEMS, making SewerGEMS a full superset of SewerCAD, StormCAD, and CivilStorm.

Automated design: SewerGEMS now offers automated constraint-based design capabilities for sanitary and storm sewers.

LID elements: Low-impact development (LID) controls can now be analyzed in SewerGEMS.

HEC-22 inlet calculations: HEC-22 inlet capture efficiency calculations can be performed when using the SWMM solver in SewerGEMS.

New gutter shapes: Support for v-shaped and parabolic gutters is now available in SewerGEMS.

Node headloss: Node headloss calculations in accordance with HEC-22 3rd Edition are now available in SewerGEMS.

DATA MANAGEMENT

Automated field filters: The input and results fields are automatically filtered according to the solver used.
