Revit MEP 2013 has some great enhancements; one of the most useful is the updated ASHRAE Duct Fitting Database. Revit now uses the latest 5.00.00 version of the ASHRAE duct fitting database. Many of the ASHRAE tables have been updated based on the latest standards. The new tables increase the coverage of pressure loss data for duct fittings.
In addition, oval fittings, taps, and tees where all of the ports are the same size are now supported.
With this enhancement MEP engineers can design duct systems with fittings based on current ASHRAE standards.
