Design software is an essential tool in hydraulic design. The design procedure includes estimation of hydraulic characteristics of both the inlet and outlet, calculation of elevation loss and discharge, analysis of hydraulic head, determination of the design depth, determination of opening span and the natural cross section area and design of the culvert.
For simple applications, the Culvert Design Software (CDS) by simiplart can be used. The open source, freely available CDS is based on Excel and is therefore accessible to most culvert designers. This type of software is most useful because it is available to the individual but it is not as powerful as other packages. By using the additional supplied macros, the culvert designer can easily extend the basic functions.
The Culvert Design System (CDS) is a series of proprietary computer programs, developed by Cresson Engineering and sold by Dodge Engineering . CDS consists of two main components: a spreadsheet and a graphic interface to the spreadsheet. These programs are designed to be straightforward and easy to use, allowing the user to see and change the basic properties of a culvert design throughout the design process. The CDS programs are available for the following platforms: Macintosh, Windows, and Unix (Solaris/Gentoo Linux). For any one culvert project, the only cost is for the purchase and installation of the spreadsheet software (also known as the Administrative System, or AS). CDS is a powerful package providing support for hundreds of characteristics in one single spreadsheet. A generic spreadsheet program draws a given design on a piece of paper and requires at least a drafting compass to be usefully implemented. CDS will create the general shape of a culvert, and will generate a support sheet allowing calculation of hydraulic parameters. Additional CDS programs are available for additional culvert analysis.
CDBM-100 is a jazz album by saxophonist Coleman Hawkins and pianist Teddy Charles. It was released by Columbia Records in January 1953. Many of the original sessions with Tesch were ghost recorded, as he died of stomach cancer in August 1954.Tracklist:No '07s d2c66b5586
