To help you design drainage networks, ProVI offers a graphical, interactive drainage editor. You can use this tool to define the positions of manholes and pipes directly within the site plan as well as in longitudinal and cross-sections or generate entire pipelines to which manholes spaced at predefined intervals are added. When doing so, you always work in the context of the overall model – in other words, positions, bottom and top heights and manhole depths can relate to a terrain model, vertical alignment or the strips and courses of a route. This makes it easy, for example, to position filter drainage at a fixed distance from the soil subgrade under a drainage ditch. To prevent conflicts with existing supply lines for electricity, gas, telecommunications, etc., these can also be incorporated in the sections.
You can make subsequent changes at any time in the drawing or the manhole and pipe tables using the graphical, interactive interface. Numerous check and calculation functions are available here; for example, to ensure a minimum gradient in a pipeline.
