HEC-RAS 5 – 2d Modelling

We have a lot of new exciting features currently in the works. One of which is the new HEC-RAS 5 importer/exporter.

This new module allows designers to take their existing and design surface models to HEC-RAS 5 for 2d model analysis. These results can be imported back into Civil Site Design for 3d visualisation of the overland flows.

Intelligent Sections

In this three part series, we show you how to use the Intelligent Sections tool to create conditional templates.

Designers can easily create the following (and many other) types of intelligent (rules based) sections using this tool:

– Repeated benching for heavy cut/fill areas
– Inclusion of a verge and fill batter/daylight when the fill height exceeds a certain value
– Inclusion of retaining walls (at, say, 200mm sections) depending on the depth of cut
– Application of different batter/daylight slopes depending on the amount of cut or fill
– Inclusion of a ditch drain at the top of a batter/daylight
– Changing batter/daylight slopes at a distance below the surface
