Bentley SUDA to combine automated hydraulic design functionality of its sewer and storm products with the physical design and terrain modelling capabilities of its civil products.
The V8i (SELECTseries 5) update of SewerCAD, SewerGEMS, StormCAD, and CivilStorm is scheduled for release this year along with Bentley’s upcoming Subsurface Utilities Design and Analysis (SUDA) product. SUDA and the sewer and stormwater products will share the same file format to help ensure full compatibility.
“Bentley’s sewer and stormwater analysis and design products are typically used for site development, roadway, or municipal projects,” explained Gregg Herrin, Bentley Systems director, product management, hydraulics and hydrology. “The release of SUDA will combine the automated hydraulic design functionality of our sewer and storm products with the physical design and terrain modelling capabilities of Bentley’s civil products. SUDA files can be used directly in the sewer/storm products (and vice versa), without the need for importing and exporting. The shared format of these products will enable SUDA users to have seamless access to advanced hydraulic capabilities.”
In addition to sharing the same file format, SUDA and the V8i (SELECTseries 5) release of the sewer and stormwater products will also share other common functionality, such as access to online content libraries, and inclusion of new lateral pipe elements.
