The latest version of PC-Convey ...
has been used daily by Melbourne Water, one of Australia's foremost Water Authorities, as a primary flood-level calculation tool for 25 years and has been used by Land Development Engineers, Consultants and Councils for 20 years,
has been written specifically to simplify the design and analysis of single, unobstructed open channels of any shape, with varying Manning's n,
includes shear stress calculations, both unfactored as calculated by HEC-RAS and factored,
includes a Constructed Waterway Designer to vastly simplify the design of these waterways,
includes 4 Input Modes to simplify data input,
includes the ability to create and load Templates - for example of standard roads,
includes detailed "Windows-style" Help,
can be used for cross-sections incorporating levees,
can be used for cross-sections with different grades for the Main Channel and the Left and Right Overbank Areas,
includes a feature to view/print the freeboard for a cross-section,
includes the ability to save Rating Tables to a .txt file,
includes weir flow calculation,
can easily import cross-section data in (chainage, elevation) format from, for example, spreadsheets, notepad or Hec-Ras,
can easily import data via a .csv file,
can estimate safety risk values of velocity x depth (average and maximum) in overbank areas and the main channel,
has powerful editing tools which enable you to quickly alter the dimensions or Manning's n values of your cross-section and see the change in the discharge, velocity etc.
can output results to a text file for importing into a spreadsheet program for preparation of rating curves, graphs etc.
includes a pipe flow calculator to estimate pipe capacities and print rating tables,
can combine PC-Convey cross-sections in a format that can be easily imported into Hec-Ras,
can be used in any situation with free tailwater conditions and steady flow where the use of Manning's equation is appropriate,
provides quality printouts of data and results (including a graph of the cross-section),
reduces errors by having the software carry out calculations for you,
saves money by increasing productivity (fast and easy to design, analyse and edit cross-sections),
has been written by a Civil Engineer with over 30 years experience in hydrology/hydraulics, drainage design and analysis and modelling.
