Using the Visual Design Window
The Visual Design Window offers designers true flexibility in their design.
Initially you must input your global variables in the top tab of the window. The program will then offer a design for ring soakaways and the typical diameters used my most manufacturers.
If you wish to design a trench soakaway input dimensions into the boxes provided and the program will, again, offer an initial design. You are then free to stretch (using the black gripboxes) and move your design from within the Visual Design Window and the program will redesign it in realtime.
Also note that as you design the soakaway the half empty time is also calculated. If this exceeds 24 hours (or the value set in the Design Options) the soakaway will turn red to indicate a failure.
