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 5):
SewerGEMS V8i (SELECTseries 5) is now available. Learn how to get this new version.
New support for OpenRoads-based products: You can now run SewerGEMS from within the upcoming release of OpenRoads-based products.
Updated support for MicroStation: You can run SewerGEMS from within the latest releases of MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3). A MicroStation license is required – if you don't have a MicroStation license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in stand-alone mode.
Updated support for ArcGIS: You can run SewerGEMS from within ArcGIS 10.3 and 10.2. An ArcGIS license is required – if you don't have an ArcGIS license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in stand-alone mode.
Updated support for AutoCAD: You can run SewerGEMS from within AutoCAD 2016 and 2015. An AutoCAD license is required – if you don't have an AutoCAD license, you can choose to run SewerGEMS in stand-alone mode.
New support for MicroDrainage: MicroDrainage model files can be imported in SewerGEMS.
Lateral elements: Include lateral pipes in hydraulic models without the need to split the pipes they connect to.
Improvements to automated design: Ground elevations from terrain models may be used during an automated design run to consider cover along a pipe’s length.
New low impact development (LID) control types: New LID control types are now available when using the SWMM engine, making it easier to model a range of LID controls for stormwater management..
Improvements to H2S calculations: Hydrogen sulfide calculations using the SWMM engine now include reactions in wet wells.
Improvements to profiles: Terrain model elevations can now be added to profiles, improving result visualization and understanding of the physical network.
