Storm Sewers comes with a few sample IDF files but you will most likely have to create your own. Here in the Denver area, the IDF curves change depending on what part of town you are in. Take the rainfall data you have for the location you are at and create the IDF curves within Storm Sewers. If you do get lucky, you might find someone in your area that's already put some together.
I'm resurrecting this thread, as we want to start using Hydraflow within Civil 3D and bin the hideous and expensive WinDes that everybody is forced to use.
So, are there any UK curves/templates/IDF files available anywhere?
The Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis has some UK functionlity built in. IDF Curves for Hydraflow would need to be built with the local records.

In that case does anybody know of a way to export the localised rainfall data from Windes? It won't create .idf files AFAIK.
I'm assuming somebody here will be UK based and therefore will more-or-less be tied to using WinDes themselves...
Thanks for that. I assume you are UK based. I have used Windes for about 25 years and although its a good package I'm now looking at alternatives especially as you suggested the costs are high and BIM is becoming more relevant.
I'm currently trying to run both systems but am having trouble using SSA to do storage assessments as it doesn't run on UK Mod Rat. I'm not that familiar with the other rain fall generators or inputting hydrographs or creating rain fall files, hence to post!!
Would be nice to get the views of other UK users like yourself who may be looking to use SSA for UK projects.
