    Modelling SUDs in ICM

    I am attempting to model a swale using a conduit in ICM. Can anyone provide guidance on sensible base and side coefficient values?

    The hydraulic performance in a swale is highly different to a conduit. If you use IWCS i would not be surprised that a conduit might be utilised to represent a swale. However in ICM i suggest that you do not model a swale using a conduit which isn't appropriate. Would suggest you to build the swale using 2D element with direct rainfall, releveant roughness and infiltration zones. good luck.
