Corridor Edit

This toolbox contains tools for manipulation of a previously created corridor and associated template drops. These tools enable you to refine the model by adding more detailed information to respond to project-specific requirements and constraints.

Description

Edit Template Drop

Opens the current template library and displays the template with the selected template drop.

Point Control

Defines a horizontal and / or vertical control in a corridor by specifying the station range within a previously created corridor, selection of point (from available points in the template), and type of control.

Create Key Station

After prompting for corridor selection and station (entered dynamically or by key-in), the station is added to the corridor for processing. This is useful to add stations that are not coincident with the template interval, when a special circumstance of the project occurs and it's desirable to include the station in processing.

Create Secondary Alignment

Sets parameters for secondary alignments, which are used to modify the direction of cross section processing. Requirements include corridor selection, secondary alignment definition, beginning and ending station (in cases where only part of the alignment element is to be used) and beginning and ending offsets.

Parametric Constraints

Sets up constraint value overrides for specified station ranges.

Curve Widening

Applies horizontal controls to points to move them farther from the centerline at each curve of the controlling alignment.

Create End Condition Exception

Defines end condition exceptions, which are used to modify the behavior of an end condition solution without requiring the use of additional template drops.

Corridor Objects

One-stop viewing of data relating to corridor objects. Excellent for managing your corridor data, as it encompasses template drops, key stations, parametric constraints, point controls, various references and end condition exceptions all within one dialog.

Process Corridor

Processes the corridor to ensure that it is up to date.
