DEK s.r.l. – Software e Servizi per l'Ingegneria
Marte is the comprehensive software package for modeling and design hydraulic networks. Developed and commercialized by DEK, it is a powerful and reliable tool for engineers specialized in design and management of hydraulic networks.
In the process of developing and maintaining a complex system, the modeling of the network is a key part: customers must be supplied in a secure, reliable and efficient way at any time. Any decisions regarding this process may have a strong impact on anybody is involved in the process itself.
In this scenario, Marte has become more and more important for many Italian companies as an efficient tool for the analysis and the design of distribution networks.
Based on AutoCAD and Microsoft Access, it delivers powerful data managing and plotting features and simplify integration with third-party solutions.
The advanced calculus features of Marte and the possibility to make accurate models of the network behaviour can be the value added and the successful key in the actual scenario of integrated hydraulic services.
Urban drainage network modelling
SWMM 5 is a dynamic rainfall-runoff simulation model available in Marte DEFLUX: it is used for single event or long-term (continuous) simulation of runoff quantity and quality from primarily urban areas). The runoff component of SWMM operates on a collection of subcatchment areas that receive precipitation and generate runoff and pollutant loads. The routing portion of SWMM transports this runoff through a system of pipes, channels, storage/treatment devices, pumps, and regulators. SWMM tracks the quantity and quality of runoff generated within each subcatchment, and the flow rate, flow depth, and quality of water in each pipe and channel during a simulation period comprised of multiple time steps.
SWMM is widely used throughout the world for planning, analysis and design related to storm water runoff, combined sewers, sanitary sewers, and other drainage systems in urban areas, with many applications in non-urban areas as well.
SWMM accounts for various hydrologic processes that produce runoff from urban areas. These include:
*evaporation of standing surface water;
*snow accumulation and melting;
*rainfall interception from depression storage;
*infiltration of rainfall into unsaturated soil layers;
*percolation of infiltrated water into groundwater layers;
*interflow between groundwater and the drainage system;
*nonlinear reservoir routing of overland flow.
Spatial variability in all of these processes is achieved by dividing a study area into a collection of smaller, homogeneous subcatchment areas, each containing its own fraction of pervious and impervious sub-areas. Overland flow can be routed between sub-areas, between subcatchments, or between entry points of a drainage system.
SWMM also contains a flexible set of hydraulic modeling capabilities used to route runoff and external inflows through the drainage system network of pipes, channels, storage/treatment units and diversion structures. These include the ability to:
*handle networks of unlimited size;
*use a wide variety of standard closed and open conduit shapes as well as natural channels;
*model special elements such as storage/treatment units, flow dividers, pumps, weirs, and orifices;
*apply external flows and water quality inputs from surface runoff, groundwater interflow, rainfall-dependent *infiltration/inflow, dry weather sanitary flow and user-defined inflows;
*utilize either kinematic wave or full dynamic wave flow routing methods;
*model various flow regimes, such as backwater, surcharging, reverse flow, and surface ponding;
*apply user-defined dynamic control rules to simulate the operation of pumps, orifice openings, and weir crest levels.
