HydroCAD® Stormwater Modeling - Since 1986
HydroCAD Supports ACO StormBrixx®
HydroCAD-10 provides built-in support for modeling the ACO StormBrixx® chamber system. The StormBrixx system offers a unique solution for underground stormwater storage and infiltration that is cost-effective and easy to install.
ACO StormBrixx chambers can be modeled with HydroCAD-10 build 17 or later. If you have an earlier 10.0 build, you can get the latest build at no charge by using your previous HydroCAD-10 download details. If you have an earlier version of HydroCAD, you must obtain a program update in order to model ACO StormBrixx.
StormBrixx systems are constructed of a standard module which provides approximately 14 Cubic-Feet of storage in each module. Modules may be arranged in different configurations to achieve any desired storage requirement.
The HydroCAD chamber library includes StormBrixx data for systems up to three modules high. Each height is supported by a separate HydroCAD chamber definition. For example, ACO StormBrixx 2 refers to a system that is two units high.
Browsing the HydroCAD chamber library makes it easy to evaluate the exact size of the specific modules, and simplifies comparisons with other storage solutions.
Easy storage calculations
The HydroCAD chamber wizard makes it easy to layout and model StormBrixx systems. After selecting the system height and layout, and the entire system is instantly sized and displayed. For systems that will be embedded in stone, just specify the voids and thickness of the stone envelope and the total system storage is calculated automatically.
Flexible storage options
Each pond may include an unlimited number of storage definitions as required to describe its overall storage characteristics. This makes it easy to model complex storage arrangements, such as a combination of multiple chambers, pipe storage, catch basins, or other contributing volumes. You can even include above-ground areas, such as a parking lot, that may provide overflow storage for certain events.
