SUMMARY: This three-day course will introduce you to key concepts in using InfoWorks ICM for drainage system modeling. All aspects of sanitary, storm, combined and overland systems can be represented along with all the inflows such as population flows, rainfall, infiltration and trade discharges that contribute to them. This training is designed to help users optimally model, calibrate, and design their system. Upon completion of this course, participants will have fundamental knowledge of InfoWorks ICM and will be able to maintain, run, analyze and optimize sewer, storm and combined collection systems.


INSTRUCTORS: Nathan Gerdts, MS, EIT, is a water/wastewater/river modeling specialist with a range of experience in numerical modeling of hydraulic and hydrologic systems. Since joining Innovyze, Mr. Gerdts has been a significant contributor to model-build projects for clients, training services, technical support and product document development. Currently Nathan is in a Product Specialist role for real-time modeling software of storm and sewer systems such as ICMLive and SWMMLive. He received his Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2015 and has since been working with Innovyze. As part of his thesis, he investigated the hydraulic impacts of vegetation on currents, wave energy, and turbulence through an open source 3D ocean circulation model. During the same time as a teaching assistant, Nathan gained experience and passion for teaching technical content.

Shawn Huang, PhD, PE, PH, CFM has worked for Innovyze for 8 years and is currently Technical Support Manager for Americas. Dr. Huang graduated from the Pennsylvania State University, where he completed his PhD in Water Resources Engineering. He has 12 years of working experience including hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, two-dimensional hydraulic modeling, flood map revision, sediment transport modeling, bridge scour analysis, and GIS application development. In his current role at Innovyze, Dr. Huang provides in-depth technical support to water/wastewater/river hydraulic engineers who use Innovyze products such as InfoWater, InfoSurge, InfoSWMM, and InfoWorks ICM, and presents numerous training courses to public and provide clients across the United States.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Consulting engineers, water resource planners, engineers employed by local, state, or federal government agencies. Participants should have some experience in urban hydrology and hydraulics.

• Manage a version-controlled and multi-user database,
• Build models and scenarios from GIS and Non-GIS data,
• Import a HEC-RAS model and enhance it with bridges and new cross sections,
• Set up a 2D Mesh for simulations and connect it with the 1D model for full dynamic coupling,
• Configure the mesh to account for streets and buildings,
• Simulate hydrologic processes on the mesh, including direct rainfall and infiltration,
• Modeling 2D structures such as walls, dams, and weirs.
