H2X Product Update – 1.8.3

Product update version 1.8.3 was released on March 7th 2022 and includes a new Design Report and Calculation Export.

Design & Calculation Report Export

Whilst H2X already allows you to view detailed calculations and results within the platform, this new feature will allow you to export the information, save it locally, and undertake a thorough QA review on your projects.

Watch the video below to get a full walkthrough of how the new feature works!

Design Report

The following information is provided within the report:

  • Cover Sheet – Includes general project information
  • Contents
  • Design Summary – Provides an overview of the project and summarises the project calculation methodology
  • Design Parameters – Includes a summary of the velocities, materials, etc. of each system
  • Product Information – Provides the technical properties of the products used e.g. pipe internal diameters, calculating Residual Static Pressure loss through valves, etc.
  • Reference PDFs

An example of the Design Report can be seen in the image below.

Water, Gas, and Drainage Calculation Spreadsheets

Every component of your design is included within a spreadsheet export.

For example, after completing a water design, you will receive a spreadsheet that includes the following information for each component within the design:

  • Flow Sources
    • Residual Pressure
    • Static Pressure
    • Height
  • Pipes
    • Loading Units
    • Continuous Flow Rates
    • Peak Flow Rates
    • Nominal Diameter
    • Internal Diameter
    • Material
    • Velocity
    • Colebrook White Coefficient
    • Pressure Drop
    • Length
    • Heat Loss Flow Rate
  • Plant
    • Name
    • Model
    • Inlet Pressure
    • Outlet Pressure

Bug Fixes

1. The snapping of pipes/fittings that are being dragged has been improved

2. White boxes on the results page have been removed

Thank you for your continued feedback that allows us to improve H2X’s capabilities and user interface.
