Trench hydraulics

Trench Hydraulics

askACO to propose the correct size drain for your next project

ACO can provide accurate channel recommendations with its proprietary software. ‘Hydro’ is a purpose written, hydraulic design program modelled on differential calculus for non-uniform flow in open channels. The program was further refined with empirical data, following a series of experiments modelling lateral intake into trenches.

Grate hydraulics

Grate Hydraulics

askACO to propose the correct inlet size grate for your next project

ACO can provide accurate grate recommendations with its proprietary software. The hydraulic intake capacities of ACO’s grates have been independently measured by experimentation at the UNSW under varying flow rates and catchment approach slopes.

Ponding Analysis

askACO to restrict flow by undersizing drain

ACO provides ponding analysis for situations when temporary ponding can be tolerated. It allows a more economical, yet still efficient system that will perform under most weather conditions.
