Description

Civil Site Design has a grading object built for rapid design of features such as building pads, retaining walls and detention basins, the dynamic grading tools automatically clean up internal overlapping corners and include radial and mitre options on external corners. The surface and grading line work automatically updates as you edit your grading, so you get immediate feedback on the impact of your design changes, as you make them. You can immediately review volume outputs after making design changes, enabling easy volume checking and optimisation. Overlay surfaces or use the CSD Surface Modelling tools to create one total dynamic surface model incorporating all your land development components – perfect for lot grading. Road Design - Our philosophy of combining template and String based design, as well as automating common design elements such as intersections and cul-de-sacs, provides a familiar and complete set of tools for rapid creation and output of your road subdivision, reconstruction, rural, highway and other design projects. Create four dynamic and interactive views of your road design. As you edit your road profile in the Vertical Grading Editor, watch your cross sections and plan drafting update in real time. You can show as many design objects as you like on screen, giving you the power to design multiple objects simultaneously and to immediately assess the interactions between design elements. With the Vertical Design Windows you get complete access to any selected design element including editing the vertical design and cross-sections, establishing cut/fill bulking factors, generating summary volume reports and creating surface models of your designs. Comprehensive vertical grading design tools allow you to establish a vertical design based on the surface levels or the vertical design of any other design element. With a centralised design centre accessed from the Vertical Design Window you can easily edit your cross-sections including assigning alignment/String controls, varying widths and crossfalls and establishing design constraints. With dynamic interactions between elements, the ability to mix cross-section and String elements and the ability to build your own models using any collection of strings and codes from your designed road elements, it is easy to generate designs for any purpose, including road subdivisions, reconstruction works, car parks, open channels, general site regrading, and more. The Model Builder provides you with real time 3D visualisation of your design for both error checking and communication of your design to peers and customers. Plotting and Publishing to Your Drafting Standards As you complete section of your design you can publish it in the drawing, ready for plotting your tender and construction plans. Civil Site Design has all the tools you need to rapidly generate industry standard outputs of your designs directly inside your BricsCAD drawing, ready for immediate plotting. With Civil Site Design you can interactively control the sheet layout, scales, layers and linetypes of your long and cross sections as well as what to present in your outputs. Plotting output styles can be saved for reuse, and you can output them to separate drawings or as layouts in the current BricsCAD drawing. Point setout, plan drafting of the models and slope patterns are all created directly inside your BricsCAD drawing. Templates Design cross section templates are easy to create and edit, and can be saved to local or network setting locations for inclusion in any project. With the Template Editor you can easily create any design cross section shape you require, with completely integrated multi-layer sub grade included. The subgrade tools allow you to accurately represent areas and volumes of infill, full depth pavement and subgrade extension out to table drains and batters. Road reconstruction and mixed pavement treatment designs can be undertaken with confidence – volume reports are made section by section and account for all subgrade layers. The Cross Section Windows display all subgrade layers during the design process, providing transparency for designers to confirm the behavior at each section. Multiple templates can be readily applied to any String object at user selected chainages and including transitions between templates via the centralised design data form, Conditional templates can also be applied based on the amount of cut and fill occurring at the design centerline. Cross Section Editing and String Control Editing and applying multiple templates isn’t always the quickest or best design approach – Civil Site Design provides comprehensive support for you to apply String controls wherever they need to, and to assign String controls to any part of a design cross section. Strings are the building blocks in Civil Site Design, and any alignment can be quickly converted into a String for you to control the vertical design. You can attach Templates to a String, and you can use a String to control any element of your cross sections, such as for road widening, table drain inverts, retaining walls, and more. Advanced design tools allow you to calculate String vertical designs from other design elements such as reference surfaces or other road design strings. You Design It - Civil Site Design Will Model It You can create your own design models in the software, applying any combination of roads, kerb returns, cul-de-sacs or other strings at user defined chainage ranges. Civil Site Design’s modeling tools provide designer freedom – build models of car parks, retaining walls, building foundations, wetlands or any other feature using the Model Manager. Inside the Civil Site Design Model Manager, users tick on/off design elements to include in a model and have access to trim functions to remove any collection of codes or code groups (perfect for manual intersection trimming and code overlaps). As edits are being applied, the plan drafting in the drawing updates, so you have confidence on your modeling outcomes as you make changes. There is a click button output to build a surface from any Model. Model results can be represented on your output cross sections for accurate section results. Long sections can be extracted through the model as required. Civil Site Design’s modeling tools allow you to put together any collection of roads, strings and cross-section codes, over user-selected chainage ranges, to allow for all your design requirements. Road Subdivision Design Tools With Civil Site Design you can automate your common road subdivision design processes using intelligent objects that can handle design elements such as intersections, kerb returns, cul-de-sacs and knuckles. As you edit any of the subdivision objects the drafting linework updates in the drawing - at the click of a button a surface model is created incorporating all the road, kerb returns, cul-de-sacs and knuckles including all trimming of strings at intersections. As you make changes to Roads, all other intersection and road type objects automatically update to ensure design integrity in the model. Intersections Intersections are automatically created and incorporated into the road model, including dynamic connectivity for side and crossing roads and inclusion of kerb returns. Kerb returns automatically and dynamically position themselves both horizontally and vertically to the intersecting roads. Design wizards allow for user creation of single or multi radius kerb returns, or your own alignments. The auto kerb return function creates multiple kerb returns at once, all matched to the intersecting roads and with cross-sections automatically matching between the main and side roads. You have complete control over the kerb return geometry, with the software managing the connections to the roads start and end – redesign your roads knowing that the intersection geometry will automatically update. Cul de Sacs and Knuckles Civil Site Design has wizard based tools to automate the design of Culs de Sac and Knuckles. Cul-de-sac design can be parametrically driven with support for circular, asymmetric, tear-drop, Y and T-shaped configurations or your own alignment. After setting the values Civil Site Design will lay it out horizontally and vertically to match the incoming road and with cross-sections automatically matching the road at either end. Localised road widening is easily achieved using the Knuckle tool, which creates a localised widening that stays attached to the road as you make design changes. Road Reconstruction Tools Civil Site Design has been developed with not only road design but also road reconstruction in mind. Featuring advanced cross-section subgrade tools, independent vertical and/or horizontal control over any part of your cross-section, and the ability to form models using any collection of independently graded strings and cross-section codes, Civil Site Design is the premium design tool for road reconstruction works. Specific vertical design tools are included to help automate road reconstruction processes, including creating a vertical design based on resheet/overlay depths, match surface controls and String/code projections, as well as displaying design ‘envelopes’ (projections from another String/code at grade) in the Vertical Grading Editor Window. The ability to show multiple dynamic Cross Section Windows of any collection of chainages takes the guess work out of road reconstruction – track the impact of changing any vertical design on the cross section crossfalls, levels or depths as you make design changes. Using the subgrade design tools you can generate accurate volume outputs through multiple layers, with automatic adjustment of pavement layer depths to match existing surfaces. Major Road and Highway Design When doing larger scale designs that may include service roads, multiple divided carriageways and grade separated intersections you need complete user control. Automating batter design, editing sections, and scalability are critical factors in your design efficiency. The Civil Site Design design environment is a proven performer on large scale projects, with customers reporting excellent performance when designing single projects in excess of 50km and incorporating independently graded table drains, superelevation and intelligent batter embankments. Civil Site Design includes specific design tools for highway designers in managing grade separated roads, as well as intelligent design tools for managing multiple benching conditions and open drains. Pipe Design Civil Site Design Pipes includes all the tools you need to quickly create your pipe networks and avoid crossing services and other pipe networks. Working inside BricsCAD you can create and design Stormwater Drainage Networks, Sewer Networks and undertake general pipe design. Service obstruction checks are included in the design process for you to quickly optimise your designs and avoid conflicts between underground services. Layout and create your pipe network by either clicking on screen or create directly from polylines or alignments. Whilst the initial pipe layout is based on minimum slopes and covers, the multiple Vertical Design Windows allow you to quickly adjust any pipe sizes and levels to achieve your desired outcomes. From The Vertical Design Window interface you can see all crossing pipes and services, including clash detection. Edit pipes and pits by setting invert/obvert levels or move pipes up and down by increment. Insert in-line pipes wherever you require and review the pit drops and pipe levels. Civil Site Design Pipes is synchronised with the Roads module, enabling both the pit levels and offsets to be directly connected to a road element and with dynamic updates as the road element is edited. All pipe networks can be displayed on the road Vertical Grading and Cross Section Windows to confirm locations relative to the road design. The Reports Manager builds customised reports from any combination of attributes stored by the software and can be exported as comma separated files (CSV) for review in your preferred spread-sheet program or as an BricsCAD table in the drawing. Create pit and pipe schedules directly from your designs. Using the Long Section plotting tools you can rapidly generate an industry standard output for your designs directly inside the BricsCAD drawing with control over the sheet layout and data included. Publish directly to BricsCAD as separate files or as layouts in the current drawing. Stormwater Drainage Civil Site Design Pipes is a complete tool for designers wanting to create underground stormwater drainage systems. Easily create drainage catchments directly from a Surface and polyline – catchment style libraries allow you to easily assign catchment criteria for common catchment types. When a network is created the design flows are calculated and pipe sizes and levels are automatically assigned to manage the flows as well as minimum cover, slope and flow velocities. As you make changes to pipe sizes and levels the Hydraulic Grade Line and all design information for each pipe automatically updates. Using the Long Section plotting tools you can rapidly generate industry standard outputs of your designs directly inside the BricsCAD drawing, complete with HGL and other stormwater details and ready for immediate plotting. Publish directly to BricsCAD as separate files or as layouts in the current drawing. Sewer Design Civil Site Design Pipes incorporates a comprehensive set of sewer pipe design tools. Sewer house/property connections are included in the design tools and can check depth controls and minimum levels along the sewer network. Each house connection can be viewed in a Vertical Design window for editing and adjustment. The sewer network will automatically adjust to ensure compliance with the minimum house connection levels, and you will be alerted if sewer pipe edits result in any compliance issues with house/property connections. Interactive vertical design windows are able to display any branch of pipes in a network and complete with editing tools you can quickly and easily design a system to avoid all conflicts and service the house/property connection. All house connections, service obstructions and other networks display as crossing pipes, including clearance controls - as you make changes to pipe sizes and levels you can immediately identify and address any conflicts. Detailed and specific reporting tools for sewer designers enable quick identification of any house/property connection issues. Using the Long Section plotting tools you can rapidly generate industry standard outputs of your designs directly inside the BricsCAD drawing, including house connection controls and ready for immediate plotting. Publish directly to BricsCAD as separate files or as layouts in the current drawing. Plan drafting occurs directly in the BricsCAD drawing including selected attributes from your design specific to sewer design. Reports Civil Site Design includes a comprehensive set of reports, outputting both as external text files and into the drawing as BricsCAD tables. Alignment information can be readily outputted to user definable BricsCAD tables – you pick what information you want and how it is arranged and click the button for it to be displayed in BricsCAD ready for plotting. Alignment tables detail the alignment geometry, and curve tables enable quick setout of curves along the alignment. As part of the road design process users can quickly generate setout reports, section volume reports, cross section listing reports, vertical design reports and more. For road set out, set out all points for all road design objects at once – label in the drawing, generate BricsCAD tables and display the setout locations on your long sections. Reports are customisable – pick what information to place in each column and output both to the drawing and to file. The Pipes design processes include a myriad of text and drawing output tables – quickly set up your own output table in BricsCAD showing pipe and pit geometry and hydraulic information suitable for stormwater design. Grading/Siteworks Built for rapid design of features such as building pads, retaining walls and detention basins, the dynamic grading tools automatically clean up internal overlapping corners and include radial and mitre options on external corners. The surface and grading linework automatically updates as you edit your grading, so you get immediate feedback on the impact of your design changes, as you make them. You can immediately review volume outputs after making design changes, enabling easy volume checking and optimisation. Overlay surfaces or use the CSD Surface Modelling tools to create one total dynamic surface model incorporating all your land development components – perfect for lot grading. The grading tools support cross section templates and intelligent batter designs to address any site design requirements. As well, you can combine template and string based designs into the grading models to get the fine level of control you require. The quick elevation viewer makes it even easier to make changes to your grading string levels and see the results. You can use both the vertical grading design tools and the quick elevation viewer to make edits to the design – change vertical IP positions along the grading, edit and add vertical curves, either in a grid view or using a graphical design long section display. Links Civil Site Design interfaces with other design programs that support Land XML transfer. Via LandXML users can share surface and alignment data, as well as export Road data for upload to survey equipment. For pipe design, Civil Site Design shares data with: WaterCom Drains: export pit, pipe, catchment and bypass geometry from Civil Site Design directly to Watercom Drains to save hours setting up your data. Data can also be exported from Drains and imported into Civil Site Design for plotting of long sections to BricsCAD. PC Drain: use the PC Drain link to export pipe, pit and catchment data to PC Drain for further analysis, design and output from PC Drain Civil Site Design for HEC-RAS provides users with the ability to transfer section data to HEC-RAS for river analysis, including assignment of Mannings coefficients, defining overbank areas, skewed sections, houses and ineffective areas. Waterline results can be exported out and back to Civil Site Design for presentation in the drawing and construction of a water surface.
