Job progress window description
The following information regarding the current simulation is displayed in the Job Progress Window:
Simulation  The simulation currently being processed 
Run 
The title of the run being processed 
Network 
The network for which the simulation is being run 
Activity  Progress messages displaying current activity, loading networks, initialising etc. 
Total(s) 
Inflow and outflow profiles during the simulation InfoWorks networks only. 
Duration 
The total period in minutes to be covered by the run 
Elapsed 
The amount of time that has elapsed so far during the simulation 
Rainfall 
The rainfall intensity at the elapsed time InfoWorks networks only. 
Surcharged 
The number of pipes that were surcharged at the elapsed time InfoWorks networks only. 
Flooded 
The number of nodes that were flooded at the elapsed time InfoWorks networks only. 
Timestep(s) 
The timestep (in seconds) being used in the calculation at the elapsed time. If a stable solution cannot be found, the timestep will be halved and the calculation will be performed again. This process is repeated until either a stable solution has been found or the timestep has been halved a specified number of times. The timestep is restored to its original value for the next stage in the simulation. 
Iterations 
The number of iterations performed so far for the current timestep InfoWorks networks only. 
Link fail H 
The last link where a stable solution could not be found for the level calculation. The failure of a link at a particular time is not a problem providing that the simulation as a whole does not fail. The link will be displayed here until the simulation is complete or another failure has occurred InfoWorks networks only. 
Link fail Q 
The last link where a stable solution could not be found for the flow calculation InfoWorks networks only. 
Node fail 
The last node where a stable solution could not be found InfoWorks networks only. 
Inflow 
The inflow value at the elapsed time InfoWorks networks only. 
Outflow 
The outflow value at the elapsed time InfoWorks networks only. 
Minimum 2D timestep 
For each element in a 2D zone, the timestep required in order to achieve stability is calculated using a CourantFriedrichsLewy condition Each zone is assigned the minimum calculated timestep of all of its elements. The Minimum 2D timestep is the minimum timestep of all the 2D zones in the network. 
2D Zone ID 
The 2D zone for which the Minimum 2D timestep was calculated. Useful for checking which areas are responsible for limiting the speed of the run. 
Element ID 
The 2D zone element for which the Minimum 2D timestep was calculated. Useful for checking which areas are responsible for limiting the speed of the run. 
Wet area 
The total area of all the elements in a 2D zone whose depth is above the depth tolerance. 
Inundated area 
The total area of all the elements in a 2D zone whose depth is above the inundation threshold. 
Max wet area 
The total area of all the elements in a 2D zone whose depth has been above the depth tolerance at some point during the simulation. 
Max inundated area 
The total area of all the elements in a 2D zone whose depth has been above the inundation threshold at some point during the simulation. 
2D volume 
The total water volume for all the elements in a 2D zone. 
2D volume error 
The total of volume errors accumulated during a simulation for all the elements in a 2D zone. 
2D rainfall 
Average rainfall falling onto 2D elements during the last run time step. i.e. total rainfall volume divided by the area of all the elements in the 2D zone. 
2D average inflow 
Average inflow into a 2D zone during the last time step. 
2D average outflow 
Average outflow from a 2D zone elements during the last time step. 
WQ step 
Shows which Water Quality solver is being used. The possible values are:
InfoWorks networks only. 
WQ iteration 
The number of iterations performed so far for the current timestep (Water Quality) InfoWorks networks only. 
WQ node fail 
The last node where a stable solution could not be found (Water Quality) InfoWorks networks only. 
WQ change 
Change in concentration during initialisation period (Water Quality) InfoWorks networks only. 
WQ solving 
The name of the sediment fraction or determinant the solver is currently working on. InfoWorks networks only. 
GPU status 
A suitable GPU card can be used to improve performance of 2D simulations. Note
When using a GPU card for carrying out 2D calculations, it is recommended that the latest available NVIDIA driver for the GPU card is installed. The GPU status indicates whether the GPU is being used or not. Possible values are:
