OpenRail Designer CONNECT Edition

Insert Station Cross Slope

Adds an additional station and cross slope transition to an existing superelevation lane.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Corridors > Superelevation > Edits split button

There may be times when an additional station and cross slope transition need to be added to an existing superelevation lane. Rather than deleting the lane and recreating it, the Insert Superelevation Station/Cross-slope tool can be used.

Workflow

  1. Select Superelevation Station/Cross-slope.

  2. Follow the heads-up prompts.

Locate Superelevation

Select a previously created superelevation lane that has superelevation calculations already assigned.

Pivot About

Identifies which edge to pivot about.

Transition Type

Optional - Type of superelevation transition at this station and cross slope. Possible values include:

L = Linear

PC = Parabolic Curve

PRC = Parabolic Reverse Curve

BRC = Biquadratic Reverse Curve

CRC = Cubic Reverse Curve

SRC = Symmetrical Reverse Curve

Station

Required - Station where cross slope is defined.

Station equations supported based on the section's reference alignment and the Design File Settings > Civil Formatting > Station Settings > Equation setting.

Cross Slope

Required – Cross slope at the specified station formatted as a double value (-2% = -0.02).

Point Type

Optional – Type of superelevation point at this station and cross slope. Possible values include:

NC = Normal Crown

NCIN = Normal Crown Inside

NCOUT = Normal Crown Outside

LC = Level Crown

LCIN = Level Crown Inside

LCOUT = Level Crown Outside

RC = Reverse Crown

RCIN = Reverse Crown Inside

RCOUT = Reverse Crown Outside

FS = Full Super

FSIN = Full Super Inside

FSOUT = Full Super Outside

U = Undefined

Locate Reference Element

Select the Civil horizontal element to be used as a basis for superelevation lanes and calculations.

Start Station

Graphically define (based on the dashed line perpendicular to the reference element) the beginning of the section. The station can be keyed in and locked.
