Designing a large drainage system can be a challenging task especially when considering the multiple calculations that are required to ensure the correct flow rates and capacity levels across the system. ACO has simplified this task by launching a new cloud based secure development tool called ACO Hydraulic Design Software. Targeted at engineers the software will speed up the design stage and will auto amend a design to take into account revised flow rates and capacity levels.
Surface water management system design can often be a complex task. Success in combining products and processes requires a thorough understanding of how these different elements interact. The powerful project based software from ACO empowers engineers to undertake hydraulic design employing ACO components to satisfy those requirements and offers a number of benefits, such as:
- Easily change design criteria (rainfall intensities, product type, additional runs)
- Quickly and confidently assess any alterations and/or alternative products
- Own allocated space to store designs
- Designs are kept confidential on the server
- Create/provide PDF summary document
The ACO Hydraulic Design software is exceptionally accurate and uses proven algorithms to calculate the correct flow rates for surface water conveyance across multiple channel profiles. Because the system is cloud based the engineers can be confident that their designs are available wherever they are working. Security of access is closely controlled and all data is backed up on a regular basis.
The ACO Design Services Team is able to work closely with you through the entire design process to ensure accurate and cost effective product selection. Some of the services offered by the ACO design team, include: whole system design, from collection to the attenuation of surface water; specification, design and installation advice; hydraulic calculations & AutoCAD detailing; parts schedules.
