With InfoWater Pro, you can run steady state simulations on a new model project to take a snapshot in time before going more in-depth. Steady state simulations capture the results for a single timestep with no variance in modeling inputs and are useful for simulating peak hour and fireflow scenarios.

  1. Open the appropriate .aprx file in ArcGIS Pro.
  2. From the ribbon, InfoWater Pro tab, click Initialize.
    The InfoWater Pro tab of the ribbon with Initialize called out as being selected
  3. In the Model Explorer, open the Operation tab.
    The Model Explorer, with the Operation tab called out for selection
  4. Expand Simulation Time.
  5. Double-click BASE, Base Simulation Time.
    Selecting the Base simulation from the Operation tab of the Model Explorer
  6. In the Simulation Time dialog box toolbar, click New.
    The Simulation Time dialog box, with the New command called out in the toolbar

Note that you can also open the Simulation Time dialog from the Run Manager, Simulation Time Browse button.

  1. In the New Simulation Time dialog box, New ID field, type, “SS, Steady-State Analysis”.
  2. Click OK.
    The New Simulation Time dialog box, with the new ID entered into the New ID field
  3. In the Simulation Time dialog box, enable Steady State.
  4. Click OK.
    The Simulation Time dialog box, with Steady State enabled and the OK called out for selection

The new steady state simulation now appears in the Model Explorer under Simulation Time.

The Model Explorer, with the Simulation Time node expanded and under that, the new "SS, Steady State Analysis" highlighted
