In this short tutorial I will explain how you can convert cartographic maps available in TIFF format to DXF, a vectorial standard available in most CAD software. The final result, nevertheless with some limitations and lacks, allows you a more productivity and improves the quality of design.
Update of my software to design a storm sewer system, in this version it is possible a more realistic schematization of the system and is fully compatible with Linux. I have added a further degree of relationship, reducing to zero the subdivision and the joining part by part of the system. Besides it produces a backup copy of the input data, so it is possible to change and analyze again the sewer.
The zip file contains:
In this tutorial I will show you how to use my program, storm_sewer.exe, in order to design a system, fixing the speed line by line. The sewer data are taken by a duplicated lecture note, so you will able to compare my results with these. Besides I prove how a complex system could be subdivided for a better compatibility with my software.
I publish an open source code that calculates line by line the suitable diameter for a given sewer system, using the linear reservoir model. It can design according to three different variables: speed, shear stress or slope of the line. It gives a final report, useful for calculus relations or following elaborations.
Cut, join, create/edit bookmarks, crop the white edges of the pages, and improve/get slim PDFs. This will not be a problem anymore with the free software listed below.
