(posted Aug 24, 2011)

music v5 is here!

What’s New

music Version 5.0 includes a number of significant new features and enhancements, summarised below.

  • New Graphical User Interface
  • Bioretention treatment performance has been further updated in music based on the latest research from the Facility for Advancing Water Biofiltration (FAWB). Treatment performance now follows a continuous relationship instead of the lookup table relationships in music version 4.
  • Node multi select and edit allows easy comparison and edit of multiple nodes of the same type.
  • Advanced Charting allows comparison of outputs from multiple nodes and pollutants simultaneously on the one chart.
  • New Outflow and Storage Interface is included for selected nodes to allow outflow and storage characteristics to be completely customised.
  • New Detention Basin Node is now available.
  • Peak outflow is now reported on Mean Annual Loads and Treatment Train Effectiveness dialogs.
  • New Pre and Post
  • Development nodes are incorporated to allow improved comparison of pre and post-development outputs.
  • MSF file changes (MSF and CSV files can now be exported from music in addition to imported, the MSF file format has been simplified and is now more robust, Meteorological Template can now be specified in the MSF file, music projects can be opened directly by double clicking the MSF )
  • Reporting of results at a custom timestep (there is no longer the restriction for the reporting timestep to be a direct multiple of the model timestep)
  • New time series formats for rainfall data (including DTF, TTS, CSV, WISKI, Met Office (UK) and Met Eirran)
  • Life Cycle Costing (LCC) Regionalisation (allows different LCC specifications for different countries/regions)
  • New background image format support (e.g., jpg, ecw, sid, tif), ability to incorporate multiple background images, ability to zoom to catchment diagram and image extents, zoom rectangle, and inclusion of real world coordinates.
  • Bioretention outflow oscillation bug when certain combinations of filter depth and saturated hydraulic conductivity were selected can now be rectified by enabling a check box within the Preferences dialog (Settings >> Preferences...).
