V8i SELECTseries 5 release for SewerGEMS/CivilStorm/SewerCAD/StormCAD

We are pleased to announce that V8I SELECTseries 5 releases are now available for Bentley SewerGEMS, Bentley SewerCAD, Bentley CivilStorm, and Bentley StormCAD. As a benefit to SELECT subscribers, these new releases can be downloaded at any time from the SELECTservices site.

Highlights of this release are listed below. More details on these improvements will be available in a separate Bentley Communities article, available shortly.

• Integration with Bentley's OpenRoads, which provides hydraulic analysis and simultaneous 3D modeling of storm and sewer features. Data produced in the integrated environment is accessible using the standalone platform without the need to move files between products. Note: this functionality will be available upon the SELECTseries 4 release of OpenRoads products
• New Tap and Lateral elements which enable the user to add inflows along a conduit or channel without the need to break the link element into multiple elements. (GVF Rational, GVF Convex and Explicit solvers)
• The ability to import and use Digital Terrain Models (DTM) has been significantly enhanced and includes the ability to account for cover along a link in profiles and automated design if a DTM is activated.
• MicroDrainage model files can be imported (StormCAD, SewerGEMS and CivilStorm)
• GIS style symbology is now available when working in MicroStation integrated mode, to control drawing characteristics in element symbology.
• Manhole loss calculations using HEC-22 3rd edition have been improved.
• Hydrogen sulfide calculations now include reactions in wet wells. (Explicit solver)
• Management of control sets in the GVF Convex solver has been improved. (SewerCAD and SewerGEMS)
• The SWMM5 import feature can now distinguish between ponds and wet wells. (SewerGEMS and CivilStorm)
• Minor functionality improvements in Flex Tables and other grids.
• RSS feeds about Bentley and Bentley Communities search are available from within product.
• AutoCAD ribbon layout is available.
• Added support for ArcGIS 10.3 (SewerGEMS) and AutoCAD 2016
• Other improvements and additions.

We will be offering a free webinar (for various times and languages) where we will discuss these new features in more detail. You can find the session that fits you best through our event registration site.

We hope that these new releases will help you find continued success!
