SINGLE CARRIAGEWAY ROAD DESIGN
This module provides the user with user-friendly and very flexible road design functions. The vertical alignment design may be done directly on screen or it may be entered from external design results. It allows for non-symmetrical vertical curves and the checking of design limits. The cross-sectional profile is defined using the most advanced techniques in manipulating individual components independent from others for example :- road width and batter slope changes. An extensive verge design function supplements the basic design profile.
Variable drains, batter parameters and topsoil stripping may be specified. Calculation results include volume calculations for mass-earthworks, foundation layers, layers on shoulders, setting-out data, layer level and thickness checks and conversion of the final profile to DTM format.
For construction the contractor may enter design data from drawings or ASCII files.
