Before you Begin

This training session will utilize the sample workspaces provided in the OpenRoads products to facilitate loading of necessary libraries used in the exercises. You may use Bentley Civil Imperial or Bentley Civil Metric workspaces as appropriate to the supplied dataset.

For information, the configuration loaded above and beyond the civil settings are:

Sample node and conduit feature definition libraries

CIVIL_CONTENTMANAGEMENTDGNLIBLIST > $(_USTN_PROJECTDATA)/dgnlib/Sample Drainage FeatureDefs*.dgnlib

CIVIL_CONTENTMANAGEMENTDGNLIBLIST > $(_USTN_PROJECTDATA)/dgnlib/*Conduit Library.dgnlib

The utility libraries also contains the levels, element templates and additional line styles needed for utilities.

MS_DGNLIBLIST > $(_USTN_PROJECTDATA)/dgnlib/Sample Drainage FeatureDefs*.dgnlib

MS_DGNLIBLIST > $(_USTN_PROJECTDATA)/dgnlib/*Conduit Library.dgnlib

Cell libraries are loaded by virtue of the civil workspace wildcards. The utility cell libraries are collocated with the road/site libraries.

Note for MXROAD users only:

The data supplied includes MXROAD projects, in metric units, which have been created using the “Tutorial” project settings file. When the classes ask you to open a design file (.dgn), MXROAD users will first need to open the existing project in the appropriate data folder, by selecting the MX project file (.mmd) as usual. The appropriate design file can also be selected on the MX Project Startup dialog:

Release 1 Workflow

You may have noticed from the review of the tools above that there are no tools for performing hydraulic analysis. Release 1 (The original release with OpenRoads SELECTseries 3 Refresh) will be focused on 3D modeling and Subsurface Utility Engineering workflows only. As such, users will need to rely on existing tool sets for hydraulic analysis.

The workflow will be as follows:

1. Use GEOPAK Drainage, InRoads Storm and Sanitary, or MXROAD Drainage Design to layout the drainage (or sanitary) network.

2. Use the same tools or a Haestad product for hydraulic analysis.

3. Use GEOPAK, InRoads or MXROAD for annotation and plans production.

4. Import the gravity networks into Subsurface Utility Engineering for modeling.

5. Use the other Subsurface Utility Engineering tools for modeling of other utilities.

4. Once the project is imported, you will see the nodes and pipes in both 2D and 3D models.

5. You may wish to turn off the display of Design Centerline reference file in 3D so you can better see the storm water elements. You will notice the following:

h. If there is a feature definition found which matches the legacy library item name then the feature definition is assigned during import. Thus, our catch basins have a feature definition assigned.

i. Otherwise, the nodes and pipes are assigned active symbology.

j. Nodes and pipes are shown in plan space in 2D. This plan space and corresponding profiles are the normal editing areas.

k. Nodes and pipes are also modeled in 3D. Some edits can be performed in 3D.

Lesson 3 - Edit Storm Drainage Model

Course Description

In this lesson, we will explore some methods for editing data in the storm drainage network. The workflow to imagine here is that we have imported the drainage data, which will be field verified and then corrected as needed. We will explore some common edits that might be required when field verifying model data such as:

Skills Taught

Correct a pipe size

Correct a top or invert elevation

Correct a feature definition

Move a node and pipe

Editing Storm Drain Model

In this section, we will edit an existing Storm Drainage Model.

1. Open …\Lesson 3\StormDrainage.dgn. The appearance of the file has been adjusted a bit by turning off some features.

2. Change a pipe feature definition: Select one of the pipes in plan space. Open Quick Properties

3. There were no matching Feature Definitions found when we imported so the pipes have none assigned. In the Feature Definition property, choose Storm Sewer/Storm Sewer Circular RCP. Note that you can multi-select several pipes to adjust feature definition.

Copyright © 2014 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 20DO NOT DISTRIBUTE - Printing for student use is permitted

4. Once the Feature Definition is assigned, go back to quick properties and notice that we now have access to all the pipe sizes defined for Storm Sewer Circular RCP. When we changed thee feature definition the pipe size was set to the closest matching size in the feature definition table. Experiment with changing the sizes. Note that you can multi-select several pipes to adjust feature definition.

5. Move a node: Select the node which lies in the middle of the intersection.

6. The center dot manipulator can be used to move the node. Using this manipulator and Civil AccuDraw, reposition the node to about station 150+00 [45+70] and offset of 36ft [10.7m]. Notice that we can adjust the top elevation at this same step:

a.You can type a known elevation

b.Or by press the ALT key, you can rule the node to a new surface. Press ALT, then select the surface.

11. Water line is modeled

Notes:

We could have selected multiple elements at once in step 6 above.

Using utility filters, we could have extracted multiple features of different sizes and different feature type all at once.

If our graphic features were 3D, then the terrain model is not necessary. The user has option to use the 3D element elevations. This is covered in next lesson.

12. Select the Water Line (in 2D or 3D) and in context toolbox choose Open Profile Model
