Regression

Setting

Description

Import Points

Specifies file that contains data for import.

Sort Horizontal Regression

Creates a line string and ordered set of points from the points selected from plan view.

Curvature Diagram

Horizontal Curvature Diagram

Displays a diagram representing curvature along the path of regression points in a horizontal alignment.

Vertical Curvature Diagram

Displays a diagram representing curvature along the path of regression points in a vertical alignment.

Horizontal Regression

Single Horizontal Regression

Used to design a single horizontal element based on a set of regression points.

Quick Horizontal Regression

Used to create a quick horizontal alignment. Computes the existing versine from the sorted regression points then determines the approximate location of transition spirals and assumes that everything outside of these zones are linear or circular arcs.

Create Profile

Create Regression Line Profile

Creates a profile from a regression sort line elevations.

Create Profile from Rails

Creates a profile from 3D rails.

Vertical Regression

Single Vertical Regression

Used to design a vertical element based on a set of regression points.

Quick Vertical Regression

Computes the existing versine from the sorted regression points then determines the approximate location of transition spirals and assumes that everything outside of these zones are linear or vertical curves.

Convert Rails to Center

Creates horizontal, sort line based on left and right rail sort lines.

Complex by Element

Constructs a complex element of previously placed elements.

Spirals

Complex Spiral Between

Creates spirals in the gaps between complex line and arcs from regression. Combines elements to create geometry that includes spirals.

Spiral From Element

Constructs a spiral from a previously placed element, using this base element to determine tangency at one end.

Spiral Between Elements

Constructs a spiral between two base elements that determine tangency.

Reports

Horizontal Regression Report

Provides report on Horizontal Regression.

Vertical Regression Report

Provides report on Vertical Regression.
