Aquacycle is a total urban water balance model gaming tool that estimates water demand, stormwater yield, wastewater yield, evaporation, imported water use, stormwater use, and wastewater use for a particular site. It provides a preliminary assessment of the performance of both conventional and innovative water system designs.


MELS (Minimum Energy Loss (MEL) Structures) is a hydraulic design and analysis suite that enables designers to quickly trial several alternative MEL culvert designs, checking for basic structure dimensions and performance under adverse conditions such as high or low flow and sedimentation issues.


CHUTE is a spreadsheet program for the design and analysis of rock chutes. Rock chutes can be employed in the restoration of rivers and channels to stabilise an erosion head or to reduce the overall grade of the channel.
