Interior Design. Piping Plan — Design Elements

Every apartment needs renovation from time to time, as some home systems such as wiring or plumbing may fall out. When developing the future design of a piping system, the engineer should take into account many aspects. Replacing the worn plumbing begins with the choice of materials and sizes of pipes for the new system. Each proposal has its own pros and cons that should be considered before purchasing. It is also relevant to draw attention to temperature changes that might effect pipes, such as freezing or thermal expansion. Let’s take a closer look at possible pipes materials.

Recently, steel pipes were the most common, and now they can still be purchased. The most important advantage of steel is that it is eco-friendly and the fact that they have passed the test of time and pipes of good quality can function for more than 50 years. Remaining pros: high operating pressure and temperature, as well as small thermal expansion. The negative sides of steel pipes include their big weight; inner diameter gradually decreases due to corrosion and the complexity of the system assembling and altering. It is also worth noting that even a temporary lack of water in the pipes causes their rapid rusting which gives water a metallic taste.

Plastic (Polypropylene) pipes are a good alternative to the steel and are characterized by ease of installation, low weight and price, durability and a complete absence of corrosion. Currently, it is the most used option. When connecting to the existing metal communications one should use fittings like unions or elbows. Due to thermal expansion, it is recommended to use a double-walled pipe system, which allows creating an interstitial space between the diameters of the two pipes.

Another option is PEX-AL-PEX pipes, which consist of three layers: the outer layer of high density polyethylene, a middle layer of aluminum foil and the inner layer of polyethylene.

Piping plan — Design elements libraries

Vector stencils libraries Piping 1, Piping 2 and Valves contain shapes of pipes and valves for drawing plumbing and piping building interior design plans, schematic diagrams, blueprints, or technical drawings of waste water disposal systems, hot and cold water supply systems using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software.

These libraries are included in Plumbing and Piping Plans solution from Building Plans area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Wiring Diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM →

It is important to have an electrical circuits scheme, when you plan a renovation or move to a new apartment. You have to arrange interior according to that plan, and it’s trouble-free to create wiring diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM , furthermore, this software has all the features needed to create an interior plan as well. So, get inspired by tons of examples included to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM solutions, and start your diagramming experience! A wiring diagrams, that are represented on this drawing was created to depict the components of the electrical circuit schemes. These diagrams are created to depict the information about circuit arrangements and connections. Wiring diagrams, in contrast to physical drawings, use standard symbol's notation to depict different circuit devices and connections. That is why, wiring diagrams are applied to discover and repair electrical and electronic circuits. The vector graphic objects provided by ConceptDraw Electrical Engineering solution can help any specialist in electric engineering to design electrical schemes, circuit and wiring plans, power systems charts, and Maintenance and Repair diagrams.Wiring Diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Process Flowchart →

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools. This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.Process Flowchart

Electrical Symbols — VHF UHF SHF →

Ultra high frequency (UHF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies in the range between 300 MHz and 3 GHz, also known as the decimetre band as the wavelengths range from one meter to one decimetre. Radio waves with frequencies above the UHF band fall into the SHF (super-high frequency) or microwave frequency range. Lower frequency signals fall into the VHF (very high frequency) or lower bands. UHF radio waves propagate mainly by line of sight; they are blocked by hills and large buildings although the transmission through building walls is strong enough for indoor reception. They are used for television broadcasting, cell phones, satellite communication including GPS, personal radio services including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, walkie-talkies, cordless phones, and numerous other applications. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — VHF UHF SHF *

Electrical Symbols — Stations →

A power station is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power. Most power stations contain one or more generators, a rotating machine that converts mechanical power into electrical power. The relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor creates an electrical current. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely. Most power stations in the world burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas to generate electricity. Others use nuclear power, but there is an increasing use of cleaner renewable sources such as solar, wind, wave and hydroelectric. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective.
