Integrated calculation

Good design also means that the calculations for the installation are correct. Stabicad offers as standard a wide range of quick calculations in order to select the right parts, for example radiator selection / transmission, slider calculation for air ducts and distribution of sprinkler heads on the basis of the correct prescribed class. In addition to the standard options for rule of thumb calculations, Stabicad has integrated calculations that comply with the standard for calculating ventilation ducts (incl. air leakage), gas pipes, tap water, including circulation pipes, central heating and cooling pipes, sprinkler and sewerage conform the following norms:

The calculations give direct insight into the best design choices. The extensive reports can be stored as documents and submitted to an approval authority. So you can later demonstrate the calculations on which your design is based. Read how ABT uses the Stabicad calculation modules in the article below:
