Engineers profit from model design

Structural engineers and other specifiers of stormwater systems are being saved days of work and uncertainty by Tubosider’s calculation tools such as our Micro Drainage software.

Not only do our tailor-made designs win out time and again because every project is always sure to meet the exact specifications required. Engineers can also see how each of the parameters affects the potential solution using our online design tools.

Using Micro Drainage means giving engineers the benefit of industry standard methods in support of our own in-house expertise. We use the source control module of WinDes to size stormwater attenuation tanks and soakaways.

This assists compliance with the drive by the Environment Agency and SEPA (Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) towards sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS). It also supports Mandatory Requirement H3 of the Building Regulations referring to rainwater drainage.

Tubosider’s software provides a complete analysis and design solution, integrating infiltration techniques seamlessly with conventional design solutions.

“We know that our calculations give engineers a service they either do not have or would need considerable amount of effort to work out themselves,” says MD Jim Dwyer.

“What’s more, understanding the merits of different systems and designs can be an essential resource for new or established engineers from practices anywhere in the country. That’s why our free seminars are so useful.”
