Unique System FZE, a Unique Maritime Group Company, which is one of the world’s leading integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solutions provider, in association with Hypack Inc. is conducting the Hypack Volumes Course on November 6-7, 2013 at its training center in the Hamriyah Free Zone, Sharjah, UAE.
 

Hypack is one of the most widely used hydrographic surveying packages in the world, with more than 4,000 users. It provides the Surveyor with all the tools needed to design their survey, collect data, process it, reduce it and generate final products.


The two-day training volumes computation course blends in-classroom sessions and hands-on exercises to be conducted by Mr. Pat Sanders, Founder and President of Hypack Inc. This would be the first dedicated Volumes Computation course to be conducted in the UAE. HYPACK ability to compute volume quantities is unsurpassed. It can compute volume quantities either from sections across channels or from surface models.


The Cross Sections and Volumes program quickly computes volume quantities for cross sectional profile lines compared to the channel design template and channel over-depth template for each line. The program is the de facto standard for volume computations by several national survey agencies. Over 20 methods are available to compute the area and volume of material for each profile segment (left slope, main channel, and right slope), it can compute quantities for a single survey versus the design template, or for a pre-dredge versus an after-dredge comparison. Cross Sections and Volumes can read hundreds of sections, compute the volumes and send all of the sections to the printer/plotter in a matter of seconds. The latest capability added is support of beach volumes for beach replenishment projects.
