For Flow calculation, manometer values to be entered in Xmin and Ymax in cm of water colu To find out the predicted CT flow proceed as follows:

For cells "U 14" & "W 14" the formula to be modified as per the formula in the curve "Variatio

Select cell "W 14", go to tools menu and and select the Goal seek option. In the goal seek menu in the second row put the actual test cold water temperature value In the third row of the goal seek menu select cell "V 14" and click OK
