Duct Run

Defines the duct run to which the transition is assigned.

Material

Defines the material from which the transition is manufactured.

Thickness

Defines the thickness of the transition material.

Insulation Material

Specifies the material of the insulation.

  • Piping - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Specification box, you cannot change the value in the Insulation Material box. However, if you manually entered the insulation specification, you must provide a corresponding insulation material as per the specification. If you selected an insulation specification from the available list, the software automatically displays the corresponding material as per the specification.

  • HVAC - If you select Not Insulated, you cannot change the information in Insulation Thickness.

Select More to select an insulation material from the Catalog. To change the options on the list, edit the Insulation Material select list in Catalog.

For more information, see Select Insulation Material Dialog Box.

Insulation Thickness

Specifies the thickness of the insulation.

  • Piping - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Specification box, you cannot change the value in the Insulation Thickness box. However, if you manually entered the insulation specification, you must provide a corresponding insulation thickness value as per the specification. If you selected an insulation specification from the available list, the software automatically displays the corresponding thickness value as per the specification.

  • HVAC - If you selected Not Insulated in the Insulation Material box, this property is unavailable.

Type

Defines the type for the turn transition. The list displays the turn transitions allowed for the current specification.

Throat Radius

Defines the throat radius dimension for the turn transition. If you change the throat radius, the software automatically updates the bend radius multiplier. The list displays the last ten radii used.

Bend Radius Multiplier

Defines the turn radius that the software will use for turns while routing as a multiplier function of the duct dimension in the plane of the turn. The dimension used is the diameter for round cross section, the width dimension, or the depth dimension, depending upon the plane of the turn. If you change the bend radius multiplier, the software automatically changes the throat radius value.

The list displays the last five values in numeric order. If this is the first time in the session file, the Bend Radius Multiplier is the default from the active specification.

Angle

Displays the angle of the turn transition. You cannot change the angle.

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.
