25Conclusion 1The software developed can be served as teaching/research/design tool.The software allows users to pick their options from currently available commercial products most popular in Taiwan, including：9 fans，4 pads3 roofs，3 design criteria
26Conclusion 2 The software provide fool proof design，including： Interval between fans installed to check too much or too little fansComparison on Pad length and GH lengthThe software provide flexible outputs，including：Fan curves, pad curves and system operating pointGH drawings in 3D and allow for rotate,zoom in and outPump, sump, makeup water requirement
