Some of the features Version 3 includes are:

Redesigned biological module – more accurate and sophisticated modeling, closely tied to the literature. User can see the experimental values from the literature before selecting. Many more species supported, and detailed information available in HelpFile.

Support for:
Adverse slopes
Pressurized flow
Metric units
Multiple culvert analysis

Flow solver shows the flows at which barriers occur
Animator shows model results
Many more output parameters calculated, reported, and graphable
Reports can be exported to Word, including all graphics and tables
Photos can be saved and annotated in the culvert database
All tables can be selected for copy and paste into Excel or other applications
Redesigned user interface makes data entry and results more usable and informative
Manage multiple crossing inventory sites by grouping into projects
List summary information for sites within a project including:
*Type of crossing
*Location and characteristics of crossing
*Percent passable
*Range of Flows passable
*Passage Criteria
Navigation Toolbar for easy selection of screens and functions
Customize and save settings for passage criteria, output graphs, tables and reports

Site Info
*lat/long location, notes, photos of crossing

Culvert Info
*Analyze multiple culverts per crossing
*Choose from 8 culvert shapes with predefined or custom input dimensions
*Installation At Grade or Embedded
*Roughness coefficient for culvert and for bottom material (composite roughness)
