NISAC Tools: WISE
Water Infrastructure Simulation Environment (WISE)
The Water Infrastructure Simulation Environment (WISE) is an integrated software framework for modeling, simulating, and analyzing interdependent water infrastructures. WISE allows quick and accurate management and analysis of large infrastructure networks across the dams and water sector. This framework includes the following:
Flood Infrastructure Simulation
Objective: Provide capability to quickly and accurately estimate flood risk area from wide range of event scenarios.
Infrastructure Consequence Flood Inundation Tool 2D is a two-dimensional shallow water equations flood inundation model capable of simulating overland flow:
Seamlessly integrated one-dimensional flood model within a GIS:
Water Sector Modeling-Building Tools
Many of the infrastructure simulation models developed by NISAC require extensive input datasets that are normally costly to preprocess, making these tools useless in emergency events. To facilitate the preprocessing task, WISE includes tools that take available data and create/convert it into compatible and usable model formats.
Water Distribution Model Builder (WDMB)
WDMB is a GIS-based tool that readily converts water distribution networks into IEISS compatible format:
Channel Morphology Tool (CMT)
Channel Morphology Tool is a GIS-based tool which builds and converts open channel network models for several hydraulic models, including an IEISS open channel infrastructure solver:
