ProStructuresSteel and Concrete Design Software
WaterGEMS is a hydraulic modeling application for water distribution systems with advanced interoperability, geospatial model building, optimization, and asset management tools.
WaterGEMS provides you with a comprehensive yet easy-to-use decision-support tool for water distribution networks. The software helps improve your knowledge of how infrastructure behaves as a system, how it reacts to operational strategies, and how it should grow as population and demands increase.
Efficiently create accurate 3D models for structural steel, metal work, and reinforced concrete structures. ProStructures lets you create design drawings, fabrication details, and schedules that automatically update whenever you change the 3D model. Complete projects quicker thanks to customizable user standards and the open working environment. Comprehensive software built by experienced design engineers, ProStructures, which includes ProSteel and ProConcrete, can help increase your productivity and profitability.
- Automatically create accurate documentation and details.
- Easily produce detailing such as stairs, handrails, ladders, and circular stairs.
- Automatically receive 2D drawings from your 3D model, including bills of materials, NC data, and PPS data.
- Eliminate duplication of effort through integration with Bentley products as well as third-party products.
Use hydraulic model results to help optimize the design of complex water distribution systems and utilize built-in scenario management features to keep track of design alternatives. Alternatively, WaterGEMS users can optimize the design for you using the built-in Darwin Designer network optimization tool.
Jumpstart the model-building process and manage your model effectively, so that you can focus on making the best engineering decisions. Leverage and import virtually any external data format, which maximizes ROI on geospatial and engineering data, and automate terrain extraction and node allocation.
Connect your calibrated hydraulic model to your SCADA system so that the initial boundary conditions for the model are automatically updated with the latest real-time data. Use this real-time model to keep an eye on the system and help ensure it is operating effectively.
Conserve water and increase revenues by reducing water loss. Leverage flow and pressure data to find locations for detailed sonic leak detection. Study the amount by which you can expect to reduce leakage by reducing pressure and see the impact on customer service.
Model pumps accurately using hydraulic modeling, including complex pump combinations and variable speed pumps, to understand the impact that different pump operational strategies have on energy usage. Minimize energy related to pumping costs while maximizing system performance.
Find the weak links in water distribution systems and assess the adequacy of isolation valves. Evaluate the ability to isolate portions of the system and serve customers using different valve locations. WaterGEMS automatically generates network segments once the isolation valve data is supplied.
Use a water distribution hydraulic model to access and identify where fire protection is inadequate. Design improvements such as the sizing and location of pipes, pumps, and tanks in order to meet fire-flow and protection requirements.
Optimize flushing programs with multiple conventional and unidirectional flushing events in a single run. Increase velocity in mains to flush out solids and stale water, with the primary indicator of the success of flushing being the maximum velocity achieved in any pipe during the flushing operation.
Identify the pipes that should be considered for replacement or repair. Pipe links are ranked based on several aspects, including property- and performance-based criteria. Benefits that result include improved asset planning, increased distribution capacity, and maximum returns on capital expenditures.
