Provides access to duct calculation and sizing capabilities either as a standalone Windows program or from within the Autodesk Building Mechanical, the new HVAC-oriented version of AutoCAD. Based on the engineering data and procedures outlined in the ASHRAE Fundamentals Handbook Calculation Methods, Duct Calculator features an advanced and fully interactive user interface. Slide controls for air flow, velocity, friction and duct size provide real-time, interactive feedback; as you spin one, the others dynamically respond in real time. When used with Autodesk Building Mechanical, Duct Calculator streamlines the design process by automatically re-sizing whole branches of ductwork. Screen Shots

Product just released October 2001.
Engineers, designers and CAD users.
User inputs desired air flow and velocity, friction or duct size and the program solves calculates the other duct characteristics.
Program displays the results or passes them on to a duct design in Autodesk Building Mechanical.
Windows 98, 2000, Me or XP.
Fast, interactive duct calculations. Can be configured to calculate sizes in rounded, "real-world" increments that users can specify using Dimension Rules.
Does not analyze or size whole duct systems.
