On-Site Design Calculus

On-Site Design Calculus is a program designed for on-site designers and / or local authorities who design on-site sewerage facilities. Local authorities are also using this program to confirm submitted designs from on-site sewerage designers ensuring confirmation of the requirements of the On-Site Sewerage Code and Australian Standards AS1547;2000. This takes into account soil permeability, viral die-off, water balancing, surface and sub-surface irrigation sizing and all trench sizing.

Having all this information readily available will improve business efficiency and economy, ensuring confidence in the fact that all land application areas have been sized correctly. This could prevent the need to re-submit ammended on-site sewerage designs to local authorities for approval.

For local authorities this program will create a more efficient and economical means of assessing on-site sewerage facility designs submitted for approval by designers.

There are two versions of the program available, with precipitation values and pan evaporation values for an individual specific area, or a version which can be used for the whole of Queensland with precipitation values and pan evaporation values automatically selected by the program based on the suburb, longitude/latitude or by Bureau of Meteorology weather stations.

The program can do the following:

  1. A computer record of all calculations for on-site sewerage designs be they submissions, originals, or checks
  2. Soil Permeability Calculation using a Permeameter Assembly (Ksat)
  3. Viral Die-off Setback Distance Calculation
  4. Water Balancing for all disposal methods (land application areas), calculated on a MONTHLY basis for comparison with the trench size proposed in the design
  5. The program can be fully networked for shared usage by employees of your business

Other Advantages

On-Site Design Calculus prints fully qualified mathematical workings in its reports, so in the event you need to prove your calculations, you have all the information available to do so. Your version of the program will come fully customised with your own letter-head on all reports that are generated, allowing your clients to identify with your business.

For local authorities, the program prevents any alterations to results of calculations, thus land application area sizes will be consistent and conform with the On-Site Sewerage Code and AS1547;2000. Making quantification of submitted designs more accurate and expedient.
