Overview about DesignSoftware

HAURATON’s hydraulic design software provides quick and accurate hydraulic analysis for your drainage projects.

The user-friendly and free drainage design software offers quick sizing of HAURATON’s core range of channel systems following input of rainfall intensity data, the run-off coefficient (surface type) and catchment area size. It makes creating your drainage design schemes much easier.

The hydraulic software is simple to use and only takes three clicks to achieve an accurate hydraulic calculation.

Your benefits with DesignSoftware

Rainfall for drainage calculations

The hydraulic design tool incorporates a UK Rainfall Map, which uses data from the ‘Flood Studies Report’ with rainfall intensity options in mm/h, l/s*Ha and l/s*m2. Users have the options for return period, storm duration and climate change giving accurate linear drainage designs.

Channel designs

DesignSoftware has the flexibility for construction professionals to create linear drainage designs using any digital device. It has accurate, precise hydraulic analysis and channel sizing with the design methodology independently tested and validated.


”We aim to provide comprehensive support to customers at every stage of the design and construction process.

Our DesignSoftware gives engineers the freedom to quickly create their own linear drainage schemes using HAURATON’s core range of products.”

Features of the DesignSoftware


User-friendly, intuitive interface with quick, clear, simple steps to get your final calculation.

Channel run designs

Automatic and manual channel run design function that allows constant-depth and built-in fall channel configuration options, which accommodates both 0% and positive longitudinal ground slopes.

Hydraulic calculations

Hydraulic calculations based on widely used ‘Modified-Manning-Strickler’ formula. Hydraulic discharge provided on a free outflow basis.

Channel drainage systems

Accommodates HAURATON’s core range of linear drainage systems for total design flexibility (from civils, commercial, landscape and other project types). Includes all channel types and depths that are available.

Project specification

Automatic generation of project documents for specification support including hydraulic analysis, materials list and information datasheets available.
