Audytor H2O

Audytor H2O

Program Audytor H2O is meant for graphical aiding of cold- and hot water systems design, as well as circulation in both dwelling- and public buildings. Allows selection of thermostatic valves in circulation systems.

 

 

The program enables performing the complete hydraulic calculations for the system, within which it:

 

  • Estimates calculation waterflow in the pipes.
  • Selects pipe diameters.
  • Estimates hydraulic resistance of individual system components, together with required disposable pressure.
  • Selects pressure governors.
  • Performs water flows control in the circulation domestic hot water system, by selecting suitable governing components(initial preset valves, orifices, thermostatic valves)
  • computes the required domestic hot water circulation system water flows by the thermal method.
  • selects three-way mixing valves for the domestic hot water system
  • selects heat insulation for the pipes

Benefits of the program

  • The ability to design several systems in one project.
  • Unlimited size of the installation (even thousands of accessories and draw-off points).
  • fast calculation process.
  • Building underlays in the most popular vector and raster formats.

 

While calculations last, the full data correctness check is conducted, including among others:

  • the picture,
  • individual data range (numbers - room symbols, pipes, catalogue symbols, etc.),
  • pipe-run linking coherence within the system (unlinked pipes, incorrectly linked pipes, etc.),
  • accessories location

Correctness check for calculations results include among others:

  • agent pipe flow velocity,
  • water pressure before the receivers,
  • unchoked pressure in circuits caused by the total lack or insufficiency of governing accessories in circulation circuits,
  • pipes insulation,
  • pipe water cooling.

The list of detected errors as a result of the data- and calculations results correctness check is created, where types of errors and their locations are listed.

 

The program is equipped with the fast error locating mechanism (automatic table location, row and column with the error data, together with indication of the erroneous item in the installation diagram).

Calculations results are presented both in the graphic, as well as table form. Picture layers format and label format for individual system components can be freely modified (the choice of highlighted quantities, color, font size, etc.). Calculations results can be also presented in the system plan view.

 

The contents of all tables can be formatted (choice of shown columns and rows, font size) and sorted according to freely selected filter.

Tables with calculations results can be printed and moved to other applications functioning in the Windows environment (eg. spreadsheet, word processor, etc.). Print preview function enables viewing the pages before printing.

 

Calculations results as plan views and installation diagrams can also be plotted onto the plotter or printer. The user can choose the plotting scale. Plot preview function enables to check the pictures before plotting. Larger pictures are printed or plotted in fragments which then can be combined into one-piece printout, so even large pictures can be executed with the ordinary A4 printer.

Using the program

Working in MS Windows environment makes the program user-friendly. Principles of cooperation with other standard programs for MS Windows make easier the  use for those familiar with Windows enviroment.

The program uses a lot of solutions that simplify the work. The most important of these are:

  • graphical data entry process that gives the opportunity to present the results of calculations in the installation diagram
  • help system while performing calculations the program will store error warning message and info on detected error
  • The ability to view multiple types of data, results, etc. simultaneously
  • access to the help info on quantities being entered
  • fast access to daa directory: pipes, receivers and fittings

Entering data 

Thanks to graphic designing process, most info on the installation being designed is entered into the drawing of the installation diagram. Necessary information on the drawn elements are introduced in the tables associated with the installation diagram. This makes it possible to edit both single wires, radiators, fittings and whole selected group.

The program checks, whether no errors, disabling the continuation of calculations, have been encountered. If further calculations are not possible, the calculations’ process is stopped. Info on errors is stored in the file with encountered errors.

In order to facilitate entering data program is equipped with:

  • simultaneous edition of more than one system element,
  • ability to use ready blocks
  • function of copying any fragment ofthe picture vertically or horizontally, togheter with automatic renumbering of rooms and pipe-runs,
  • function of defining unlimited number of own blocks consisting of freely seected fragments of the picture
  • fast access to the most commonly viewed system elements, with the application of pull-down buttons
  • dynamic linking of data in the picture with the relevant table data
  • aided linking of pipes, draw-off points, accessories and other syste elements.

The program is accompanied with the library of the typical picture fragments (blocks), such as storey risers, dwelling system- and manifold elements, and enables fast creation of the installation diagram. Additionally, the user has the possibility to define practically unlimited number of own blocks consisting of freely selected picture fragments. Such blocks can be then used in following projects

Thanks to the copying function for the freely selected picture elements, it is possible for example to enter the fragment of the installation diagram onto the whole storey (subsequent risers or dwelling systems), and then automatically create the diagram and data for the subsequent storeys.

Drawing graphic elements 

The program's graphic processor enables drawing individual system components and other graphic elements, with their later edition (moving, copying, pasting, deleting, editing components data).

Drawing and edition methods in the program are very similar to the methods you are familiar with from other popular graphic programs of the MS Windows environments.

It is possible to modify dimensions, as well as the rotation angle of previously drawn components. It is possible to add the remaining layer parameters, such as the line style, thickness, color, filling ecc. Drawing properties enable modification of the picture's appearance, element selection method, undo history, system components linking aid and many other features concerning creating the system picture.

Building underlays

The program enables creation of the complete graphic documentation of the system design, thanks to the possibility of displaying the calculations results on the storey plan views. It is often required to enter the picture of the project under design. Pictures can be entered by reading pictures from a file, scanning or pasting from clipboard. After being entered, pictures frequently require levelling, calibrating, cropping and additional correction.

Technical drawings (eg. underlays) are now as a default created using computers. They are then available in the electronic format as files. Vector formats (eg. DWG, DXF, WMF, EMF) are the most suitable for technical drawings. Picture files can also be created as scans, then they are almost always available in the raster format (BMP, JPG, JPEG, TIF, TIFF, GIF, ICO, PNG).

Usually, while loading the picture, it will be necessary to complete information from the dialogue Picture units. After the picture has been inserted into the program it is usually necessary to perform its levelling and cropping, also the calibration might prove necessary to adjust the picture to its electronic equivalent. It is possible to choose the resolution and quality of the scan and to save scanned documents in a selected graphical format. The program is equipped with scanners compatible with the TWAIN specification.

Floor projections

The program allows to draw storeys on the views. Thanks to that, when using the program you can create the whole drawing specification for the central heating installation’s design. It is necessary to draw a floor plan, and then enter the radiators, pipes and other components. The program describes the radiators and then gives pipe diameters and valve settings.

If drawings are available in the electronic form (CAD, CorelDraw, MS Word drawings), it is possible to copy them directly to the program and use as architecture drawings. The program accepts the drawings in WMF and BMP formats. This allows the close cooperation between the architect and the designer of heating system. It contributes to a significant shortening of the design process.

Data control and calculation results

While entering data the program maintains the control of their correctness.. The program will store error warning message and info on detected errors in the error file. Error list window has been equipped with the function of positioning errors. The program will highlight the relevant fragment of the picture and display the data table, marking the cell referring to the error that has been found.

The error diagnostics allows the designer to evaluate the quality of the project. The program features a fast search mechanism that indicates he place of error(finds the tables, rows and columns with incorrect data and identifies incorrect components in the installation diameter).

Results

Calculations results can be viewed both in table- and in graphic format, as well as table form. Picture layers format and label format for individual system components can be freely modified (the choice of highlighted quantities, color, font size, etc.). Calculations results can be also presented in the system plan view.

The contents of all tables can be formatted (choice of shown columns and rows, font size) and sorted according to freely selected filter. Tables with calculations results can be printed and moved to other applications functioning in the Windows environment (eg. spreadsheet, word processor, etc.). Print preview function enables viewing the pages before printing.

Calculations results as plan views and installation diagrams can also be plotted onto the plotter or printer. The user can choose the plotting scale. Plot preview function enables to check the pictures before plotting. Larger pictures are printed or plotted in fragments which then can be combined into one-piece printout, so even large pictures can be executed with the ordinary A4 printer.

The program is equipped with a function to save drawings in DXF or DWG format. Saved drawings can then be loaded into the program such as Auto CAD. Drawing in DXF or DWG format is divided into layers, and the typical components of the system are stored in the form of blocks.The tables with the results of calculations can be printed as well as transferred to other applications running in a Windows environment (such as a spreadsheet, word processor, etc.).

Print Preview function allows you to view the appearance of the pages before they are printed on paper. Program Auditor C.O. 3.8 has been designed to work with the program OZC Auditor 4.0 and newer versions (5.0 OZC 3D). Program C.O. version 3.5 or lower is not possible to import data from the latest public version of OZC. Auditor C.O. 3.8 runs on both 32 and 64 bit Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7
