Description MACRA 1 2000 carries out the stability analysis of watercourse cross-sections with respect to both water flow and wave motion. It allows the user to check a number of hydraulic conditions of watercourse sections lined with Maccaferri products, such as gabions, Reno mattresses and Macmat-R, as well as with the most widespread bio-engineering techniques. The software enables the user to verify, under the hypothesis of uniform flow, a generic bank protection typology given the allowable tractive force tc and roughness coefficient n, comparing for each material the maximum shear stress with the allowable tractive force. Features include: Graphics interface compatible with standard products (Autocad and Excel). Processing of multiple hydraulic calculations and multiple sections. Direct input of parameters (geometry, materials database and hydraulic data). Interpretation of results with errors message, suggestions and warnings for the user. Output data in graphic and tabular format. Online help with formulas and graphics. Database of the materials with modifiable standard values. Database of the materials with updated allowable limit values of each material. Possibility of automatic check under vegetated bank's materials condition.
