The following list provides the new and exciting features in the latest release of XPSWMM/XPStorm in version 2020.1. (Coming soon!)
Sub-Grid Sampling for XP2D Extreme
Sub-Grid Sampling (SGS) enables the sub-2D cell terrain data of the DEMs, TINs, and Z shapes to be used to construct the model, rather than represent each 2D face and 2D cell as having one elevation. This methodology prevents trapped water and accounts for cells partially in channels, which results in sharper 2D maps and more accurate flood extents.
SGS is available when XP2D Extreme is enabled in 2D Job Control Settings. It is accessible to all users with existing 2D functionality.
XP2D Extreme – Quadtree for Multiple Domains
The Quadtree for Multiple Domains feature enables variable-sized grids to focus on detail where needed and allows flexibility to reduce simulation memory and computational speed. As seen in the following example of an urban area, applying Quadtree mesh to the model produces sharp details for a greater focus area.
Quadtree for Multiple Domains is available when XP2D Extreme is enabled in 2D Job Control Settings. The Multiple Domain module is accessible to existing users on Complete and Premium bundles only.
