OpenRail Designer CONNECT Edition


This toolbox contains tools for creating, calculating, and editing superelevation lanes. Tools are also supported for importing CSV data and reporting.

Select in the Toolbox


Create Superelevation Sections - Adds a superelevation sections (generally one per curve set) for the specified station range on the baseline reference.

Create Superelevation Lanes - Creates optionally color-filled lanes based on width and offsets from the baseline reference, as a precursor to superelevation calculations.

Create Superelevation Lanes by Road Template - Alternate method to create superelevation lanes to which super calculations can be applied.

Calculate Superelevation - Calculates station and superelevation transitions rates based on a rules file. The values are augmented to the superelevation lanes, and edit manipulators are created, and the color fill is recolored, based on the cross slopes.

Edit Superelevation Rule File - Edits the XML-formatted superelevation rule file.

Import Superelevation - Imports superelevation values via a CSV file.

Assign Superelevation to Corridor - Associates superelevation with a corridor, so the pavement reflects the superelevation stations / cross slopes, rather than the pavement cross slope defaults in the template.

Insert Superelevation Station/Cross Slope - Insert an individual station / superelevation transition (cross-slope) into a previously created and calculated superelevation lane.

Superelevation Editor - Opens the superelevation editor.

Superelevation Report

Creates a superelevation XML report and opens the Bentley Civil Report Browser.

Open Superelevation View
