Open BIM Water Supply

Program features

Fast network introduction, with no design limits, that can be supplied by one or several points.

It uses a simultaneity coefficient to increase or reduce the consumption and an increase coefficient for drops caused by special elements.

The analysis is carried out according to the duct types, diameters, required flow and supply pressures.

Special elements can be inserted in their actual position in the pipes (valves of various types: regulating, pressure control, flow control, etc., and booster pumps).

Reads digital terrain models in IFC4 format if the job is connected to a BIM model hosted in containing the IFC4 file with the terrain data defined in an entity such as "IfcGeographicElement".

Project documents

As well as the results that can be consulted onscreen (node analysis data and section analysis data with results by loadcases, combinations or building envelopes), the program generates the following project documents (reports and drawings). These documents can be printed from the program, exported in various formats and exported to the BIM model hosted on the platform if the job has been connected to a BIM model.


  • Design report
    Description of the hydraulic network, the materials used and the terrain, formulation, combinations, list of nodes, list of sections, list of elements, building envelope and measurement (ducts, excavation and backfilling).

  • Results for nodes
    Numbering of nodes, coordinates, transition elements, elevation, installed flow, required flow, piezometric head and available pressure.

  • Results for spans
    Length, diameter, installed flow, required flow, flow and velocity.


  • Installation drawings

    • Quantities tables
    • Excavations tables
    • Analysis results information by loadcases, combinations or building envelopes of:

      • Nodes: flow, deposit level, elevation, ground level elevation, soil elevation, piezometric head 
      • Spans: dimension, material, flow, pressure drop and velocity

Urban infrastructure marketing

Urban infrastructure programs are marketed in two ways:

  • Urban infrastructures
  • Urban infrastructures LT
    Includes the same tools and features as the full version, but the maximum number of nodes that can be entered is limited to 50.
