Advanced InRoads V8i Training Course

 

Contact us for more information or a quotation!  

Overview: This Advanced InRoads training course is designed for civil engineers and designers who have a basic knowledge of InRoads, but have not reached its full potential. It is also useful for those who are self-trained in the software, but may not have learned the complete functionality. Students will complete example design problems in the areas of: Alignments (Including Elements) and Cogo, Optimization of DTMs, Template/Component Creation and Modification, Roadway Designer, Intersections, Feature Modeling, Cross Sections and Profiles. See the table of contents below for a list of specific topics covered. Note: This is a condensed version of the combined InRoads II and InRoads III classes.
Length: 4 Days typical
Prerequisites: Ability to use MicroStation with at least 80 hours of hands-on experience; Familiarity with MicroStation 3D; Familiarity with civil engineering design terms and concepts; Applying InRoads or a basic knowledge of InRoads, including: how to create DTMs, how to create horizontal and vertical alignments, how to create templates, how to model roadways, and how to cut basic cross sections.
Details:

This course focuses on more advanced features and tools available in InRoads. You’ll learn how to get the most out of the software including how to:

  • Create and optimize digital terrain models (DTMs).
  • Use Element tools to easily create alignments containing reverse and compound curves.
  • Create Deed Descriptions using XML reports.
  • Create skewed cross sections.
  • Use cross section annotation tools to show slopes, elevations, offsets, etc.
  • Calculate End-Area Volumes including component volumes.
  • Build efficient components to create templates.
  • Use Display Rules to turn component on and off when necessary.
  • Create complex sideslopes using the power of End Conditions.
  • Unlock the potential of Parametric Constraints to vary a template in Roadway Designer.
  • Reduce the number of templates necessary by making use of various Point Control options.
  • Easily generate horizontal and vertical alignments for intersections.
  • Take Roadway Designer to the next level by modeling multiple corridors at one time and use Clipping Options to create one model.
  • Create master proposed surfaces with feature modeling concepts.
  • Use the new Site Modeler to interactively create surfaces.

All students receive the Advanced InRoads V8i manual and dataset that is used to work through the topics with a knowledgeable instructor available to explain key concepts and assist with questions.
