Discover the main functionalities of Autodesk InfoWorks WS Pro®, which helps hydraulic modelers effectively plan, design, and operate water distribution systems.
Multiple users can edit the same model simultaneously, with conflict resolution and version control
Build and keep models up to date automatically by connecting to third-party data such as GIS and telemetry
Infer missing network values from existing data to fill in data gaps with reasonable values
Assign customer point and area-based (land use) demands to nodes in the network using various methods
Use the connection to telemetry to perform demand area analysis, calibration, and leakage simulations
Share computing resources across teams with multi-core simulations to maximize hardware resources
Run a simulation many times using cloud scalability, modifying one or two values each time
Improve water systems, including fire flow, water quality, flushing, and pipe shutdown
Realistically represent pump and valve controls and demands, and model elements (hydrants, meters) explicitly
Find customers affected by an incident and show where parallel pipes can add resilience with criticality link analysis
Color-coded contours and thematic maps of the network clearly show element properties and results
Use a built-in library of SQL queries to review results and add as many queries as you need
Database cross-version compatibility
InfoWorks WS Pro supports different versions of the database – enabling backwards compatibility – by toggling on available features and off unsupported functionality. When changing the version, you get a warning message that includes the impact of updating a master database. (video: 2:05 min.)
Import and export of SQLs
By importing and exporting, users can now share the InfoWorks WS Pro subset of SQL (Structured Query Language) between models and teams to select and update network objects using specified criteria.
Large data management
Import, track, audit, and interpret the large quantities of data associated with complex projects quickly and easily.
Tracing tools (including Upstream/Downstream, Boundary, Connectivity, Proximity, and Isolation Trace) help you locate problems or anomalies in the network, identify isolated areas, and understand system layout.
Update demand patterns
As an essential part of the calibration process that precedes a simulation, InfoWorks WS Pro calculates a domestic demand profile within a demand management area (DMA). Automate this calculation to derive the patterns directly from observed telemetry data.
Demand area analysis
Demand area analysis interrogates live data to provide a time series of water usage, unmetered consumption, and water losses, including leakage.
Compare model elements
Compare elements and results in graphs, long section profiles, and annotations displayed on your network for a better understanding of the model.
