ORD Drainage - Separate CUlverts and Storm Sewer Pipes into Completely Separate Design Windows

Having to click 'Is Culvert' is just one more placve an error can take place in design. Creating spearate design windows for each of these elements will minimize this potential, and will make it easier for reviews as well.

Ability to modify 'Rational Method Frequency Adjustment Factor' for a specific catchment or range of catchments.

Currently there is only an option to add Rational Method Frequency Adjustment Factors for the entire storm, which affects all catchments. Our GDOT standards require modification of the factor for only C values less than 0.6.

External model checking process - by possibly running a report to identify where 3d conduit string lines have been placed - i.e soffit, centre, invert, crown or base, this will ensure all output data of conduits are consistent for construction.

This is useful to enable a) - checks to be carried out, b) - to identify possible conduits that require amending - to align with all others. This will enable consistent and accurate output data to be produced, that can be used to construct from.

Flow Arrow from High to Low Point for any Civil/Linear Geometry

In placing drainage node to the carraigway or kerb/curb lines in 2D plan, it is useful to show the flow arrow from high point to low point for the drainage engineer. Currently, the flow arrow is only available in "Terrain", but not civil geometry ...

Openroads Drainage - HGL versus Headwater Analysis for Headwalls Inletting into a Storm Sewer System

Many times, a stream needs to be drained into a storm sewer system via a headwall. When this occurs, two analysis should be considered: The headwater at the headwall (the mechanics of the water getting into the pipe at the headwall). Generally KYT...
