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.
