Displays the size and view perspective parameters for the cross-section. The options available on this tab depend upon the type of feature (such as turn, straight, or transition) that you have selected and the cross-section type (such as rectangle or round).

icon appears in the Value box if the duct cross-section property value is inherited from the duct run to which the feature belongs.

Calculate button

Displays the Calculate Flow dialog box. For more information, see Calculate Flow Dialog Box.

Position

Indicates whether the properties are for the start of the transition, or the end of the transition.

Cross Section

Defines the shape of the cross-section for the feature. You can select Rectangle, Round and Flat Oval shapes. If you do want the feature to inherit the duct specification from the duct run, select User Run CrossSection.

Width

Defines the width dimension of the cross-section. The values stored in the reference data determine the list of options. The list displays only the values that are valid for the current depth. If the depth is not defined (for example, the Depth box is blank), the width size is based on the default width ratio. You can type a value if you have selected a user-defined specification. Select <Clear> to undo the default width ratio filtering and display all the depth values listed in the reference data.

Depth

Defines the depth of the cross-section. You can type only values that are greater than or equal to the width value, if defined. The values stored in the reference data determine the list of options. The list displays only the values that are valid for the current width. If the width is not defined (for example, the Width box is blank), the depth size is based on the default width ratio. You can type a value if you have selected a user-defined specification. Select <Clear> to undo the default width ratio filtering and display all the depth values listed in the reference data.

Diameter

Defines the diameter of the cross-section for the feature and is available for Round shape. The values stored in the reference data determine the list of options. You can also type a value that is not on the list if you have selected a user-defined specification.

Corner Radius

Determines the radius of the cross-section and is available for Rectangle shape.

Orientation Angle

Defines the orientation of the duct run by specifying the angle between the local axis of the feature and the width axis. A value of 0 results in a feature with the width horizontal and the depth vertical. A value of 90 degrees results in the width vertical and the depth horizontal. The value for an angle ranges from 0 to 360 degrees.

Non-Standard CrossSection

Indicates whether the cross-section values are in the specification defined by the system. This property is read-only.

  • TRUE - Specifies that the cross-section values are not in the specification defined by the system.

  • FALSE - Specifies that the cross-section values are in the specification defined by the system.

Number of Vanes

Defines the number of vanes used for branches during routing. To add the weight and center of gravity of the branches vanes in the branches feature calculations, assign the values for the duct material and thickness of the branches feature as the values for the vane material and thickness equals (that is, these values are equal). The range of values for Number of Vanes includes non-negative integers.

Vane Length

Defines the length of the specified vanes.
