OpenFlows CivilStorm

Stormwater Modeling and Analysis Software

All-in-one stormwater management

Stormwater systems can be very complex to model, with flow backups and reversals, surcharged pipes, and more.
OpenFlows CivilStorm is one solution for all your stormwater modeling needs.

What is OpenFlows CivilStorm?

OpenFlows CivilStorm performs analysis of all aspects of stormwater systems: rainfall, runoff, inlet capture and bypass, gravity and pressure piping, ponds, outlet structures, open channels, culverts, and more. Detect system bottlenecks, improve capacity, and limit stormwater flooding, so you can comply with stormwater regulations. Minimize capital investments on your infrastructure with optimized network designs and master plans for your entire system. Better understand surface flood depth and velocity, flood hazard, and inundation times with the new user-friendly 1D/2D hydraulic analysis capability.

    One Solution for all Stormwater Modeling

    Low Impact Development (LID) Controls

    Leverage tools that help evaluate best management practices such as porous pavement, rain gardens, green roofs, vegetated swales, and rain barrels.

    Flexible Storm and Runoff Calculations

    Use a wide range of storm data formats, including a simple table of depth vs. time, methods based on intensity/duration/frequency tables and curves, to special regional methods. For rainfall, you can use synthetic or gauged storm data formats, synthetic rainfall distributions, intensity-duration-frequency curves, and other methods. Runoff calculation methods include SCS and other unit hydrographs, EPA-SWMM runoff, ILSAX, Time-Area, and Rational.

    Analyze Inlet Capacities

    Calculate the proportion of stormwater runoff that will enter an inlet versus the proportion that will be carried downstream in a gutter or pond on the road surface. Quickly confirm that the spread of flow in a gutter doesn’t exceed design requirements.

    Simulate Water Quality

    Simulate the generation, inflow, and transportation and treatment of any number of user-defined pollutants, such as total suspended solids or heavy metals.
