Fluidit Storm

Urbanization disrupts the natural water cycle as catchments are developed, landscapes altered and natural flow paths compromised. These transformations can lead to flash flooding, prolonged dry periods and severe water quality degradation. Detailed modeling is required to plan and design safe and reliable systems to cope with unpredictable weather events of the future.

Main features

  • Supports all SWMM hydrological features (Runoff, infiltration, snowmelt, groundwater flow and aquifer, LIDs, pollutants buildup and washoff…
  • LIDs and land use assignment tools. Manage green infrastructure of all catchments at the same time.
  • 2D fast flood inundation model. Parallelized computations (Multi-core CPU and graphics card GPU)
  • Flood model simulations using a Cellular Automata Model (simulations usually much faster than traditional hydrodynamic models)
  • Overflows from nodes, catchment’s runoff and rainfall can be used as input for the flood model.
  • Unlimited pipes / channels, nodes and components in all versions
  • Fast GIS-based interface
  • Support for all EPSG-coordinate systems
  • Affine coordinate transform tool
  • Online background maps (Bing Maps, OpenStreetMap, Satellite maps, custom WMS/WFS…)
  • Integrated elevation model, automatic elevation retrieval for junctions and hill shading
  • Reference maps (shp, dxf, geotiff, mif, geojson, GML…)
  • Versatile visualization of components and results
  • Model validator for checking validity of model
  • Calculated raster data from node and user data
