Stress-free culvert analysis and design
Analyze existing culverts and design new ones, from simple barrel crossings to complex embankment cross-drain systems, with different shapes and sizes, special tail water considerations, and roadway overtopping that considering watershed data, culvert characteristics, and even weir geometry.
What is OpenFlows CulvertMaster?
Quickly deliver robust, report-ready culvert designs. OpenFlows CulvertMaster builds on the input you have on hand, providing you with any unknown design variable such as headwater depth, discharge, or culvert size.
From simple, single culvert sections to complex, multi-barrel culverts with roadway overtopping, OpenFlows CulvertMaster helps you evaluate existing culverts and compare numerous design options with ease.
Use the built-in FHWA HDS-5 methodology, SCS and rational hydrology, and robust gradually varied flow hydraulics to deliver culvert designs that will stand the test of time.
- Calculate, design, and analyze culvert hydraulics
- Compare culvert options
- Analyze single-barrel crossings to complex embankment cross-drain systems

Frequently Asked Questions
CulvertMaster is easy-to-use application for designing new culverts and analyzing existing culvert hydraulics. Analyze everything from single-barrel crossings to complex embankment cross-drain systems, with different shapes and sizes, special tailwater considerations, and roadway overtopping considering watershed data, culvert characteristics, and even weir geometry. When you design and analyze culverts, easily select from a library of standard culvert shapes, materials, and entrance conditions, then compute culvert headwater and tailwater elevations using calculation methodologies outlined in Hydraulic Design Series Number 5 from the U.S. Federal Highway Administration.
Data entry and manipulation are flexible and straight forward with CulvertMaster. You simply enter data in clearly labeled fields with full context-sensitive help and click to calculate. Quickly navigate using tabbed dialog “worksheets” to edit watershed data, tailwater conditions, and profile information. You can conveniently organize all your designs and analyses for the same project within a single file. When you interpret and present your modeling results, you can easily view detailed tables, reports, rating curves, and more.
The price of Openflows CulvertMaster varies per region. While there are various types of licensing available, a common choice is the 12-month practitioner license offered through Bentley’s eStore. When you purchase through the eStore, you get a Virtuoso Subscription. This means you get the software and “Keys” (tokens) to redeem for customizable training, mentoring, and consulting services.
