Simple Hydraulic Calculator (SHC for short). SHC is a powerful, flexible, full featured hydraulic calculation program designed from the ground up for automatic sprinkler system designers and engineers.
SHC can hydraulically calculate your sprinkler systems using the Hazen-Wiliams and Darcy-Weisbach friction loss equations in accordance with NFPA 13 and other standards. Any piping configuration is supported - trees, loops, grids, and completely custom layouts. You may even use multiple water sources, pumps, and backflow preventers.

Advanced Hydraulic Calculation Engine
1. Hazen-Williams friction loss formula
2. Darcy-Weisbach friction loss formula
3. Simultaneous Hazen/Darcy mixed formula - calculate part of a system with the Hazen-Williams formula and part with the Darcy-Weisbach formula
4. Demand calculations (start with the system demand)
5. Supply calculations (start with the water supply to the system) with optional safety margin
6. Calculate any piping configuration - loop, tree, grid, or completely custom
7. Suitable for many suppression system designs including wet, dry, pre-action, deluge, antifreeze, low, medium, and high pressure mist, foam-water, foam concentrate and more!
8. Multiple water supplies fully supported
9. Multiple fire pumps supported
10. Multiple backflow prevention and fixed loss devices supported
11. Can adjust water supply and demand to base of system riser or any other node
12. No artificial limit on number of pipes or nodes (greater than 2000 permitted)
13. Fitting loss coefficient K support (for non-sprinkler work)

1. NFPA 13-07 and 13-10 (the fire sprinkler installation standard) compliance capable
2. Automatically adapts to paper size
3. Customizable report page header text
4. Customizable node analysis information
5. Customizable pipe information
6. Graphs and text use color to aid readability (optional)
7. Export as pdf, html, or plain text - AHJ's do not want to install a custom viewing program just to see your emailed calcs!

Advanced Syntax Highlighting Data Entry Editor
1. Real time error checking
2. Automatic "proposals" for fast data entry
3. Descriptive node and pipe names up to 8 characters long
4. "LiveLook" information bar for quick system evaluation
5. Robust U.S. and SI unit support - even mixed U.S. and SI units supported
6. Group editing of selected values by type (size, length, elevation, k-factor, etc.)
7. Multiple undo and redo
8. "Popup" helpers for remembering/using material codes, fitting codes, etc.
9. Undefined and unused node list
10. User selectable font
11. User selectable highlighting colors

Calculation Results Window
1. All system, node, and pipe information displayed in tabular format for comprehensive system analysis
2. Pipe and node information sortable by any value
3. User selectable pipe information columns
4. Fully resizable window, displays as much information as it can
5. Persistent - you may keep this window open and in view while editing input data!

Pipe Material Editor
1. View properties and internal diameters of any defined material
2. Edit properties and internal diameters of any material (except default "schedule 40 steel" piping material
3. Enter entirely new pipe materials

Fitting Equivalent Length Editor
1. View equivalent lengths for any defined fitting code
2. Edit equivalent lengths for any defined fitting code
3. Create new global and material specific fitting codes

Liquid Properties Editor
1. View properties of any defined liquid
2. Edit properties of any defined liquid
3. Define new liquids

DXF Files
1. Import DXF files - the format supported by most CAD applications
2. Automatically define pipes and nodes from drawing's "line" and "lwpolyline" ACAD entities
3. Automatically searches "text" entities for nominal pipe sizes
4. Full preview of generated commands before committing them to the input data
5. Update DXF file after calculation
* Updated nominal pipe size "text" entities to match SHC's data file
* Add "text" for node and pipe labels
* Add "text" for node discharge
* Add "text" for pipe flow rates
* Add pipe flow direction arrows

1. Quick Start wizards for fast creation of basic tree and gridded systems with water supply
2. View the hydraulic demand graph and save as jpg, wmf, or bmp file
3. View the flow diagram and save as jpg, wmf, or bmp file
4. Easily and quickly convert existing files to different units
5. Backflow prevention device database for easy insertion in the data input file
