Provision of a pipe tank sizing calculator based on data from the Polish Atlas of Rain Intensity (PANDa).
The aim of the project was to create a pipe tank sizing calculator based on data from the Polish Atlas of Rain Intensity (PANDa), which contains up-to-date information on indicative rainfall intensity for all cities in Poland.
Pipe tank sizing calculator was prepared together with Amiblu Poland Sp. z o.o., a producer and supplier of GRP pipe systems. This tool allows for a quick selection of an underground horizontal storm and melt water retention basin, using the data given by the user. As a result, the user gets an illustrative design of the basin together with its parameters such as basin’s diameter, length and capacity. All calculations connected with basin’s capacity are done in accordance with DWA-A117 guidelines (for catchment areas of ≤ 200 ha with sewage systems or systems with flow time of ≤ 30 min). The calculator makes work easier and reduces time needed to prepare necessary calculations when selecting the appropriate retention basin.
The calculator is available in the WaterFolder application www.waterfolder.com
