ORD Drainage - Show actual Tc versus Tc Minimum

Many times a calculated Time of Concentration is less than the minimum used for Intensity. When this occurs in a system of drainage areas (catchments), it helps a designer AND a reviewer to see what the actual Time of Concentration is at a given p...

Add By Linear Element option to Analyze Catchment (by Terrain Model) tool

Be able to select a linear element (eg. edge of road pavement) that the Analyze Catchment tool computes catchment areas from a terrain model for. The tool currently only has a Use Fence option which can still take a long time. If one can narrow it...

Needs ability to set RIM Depression Depth

Needs ability to add RIM Depression Depth with elevation (ground). Currently we can only set the Elevation (RIm) but not any depression value.

Utility Enhancements

Add the conduit table options similar to drainage for managing conduit sizes, materials, etc... Right now you have to input a conduit table for each utility type and can't import a table from utility to utility. Just need one set of tables to mana...

Display and Annotate Tap Nodes in Profile Drawing

The feature name (e.g. a number) of the tap node can be labeled in the plan.The tap is visible in the "Engineering Profile".It would be helpful if this could also be displayed and labeled in the profile view/drawing. How it should work: Tap Node i...

Visualization of Flood Fill based on min and max height values

A function of flood fill a portion of the terrain based on a min height and max height value. It allows a drainage engineer to visually check if a certain flood top water level will flow beyond the project boundary. Is there a way to do this in Op...

Create multiple long sections/profiles in the same model space

When creating profiles/long sections for track vertical geometry, ORD creates an individual sheet view and model view for each sheet. This creates a large amount of work when trying to bulk annotate or export long sections for drafting. It would b...

Commands to Place Node and Conduit <Type> (e.g. Place Manhole, Place Stormwater Conduit)

At the moment, you run Place Node, then set the type of node by picking a feature definition. However, you normally know what type of node that you want to place, such as a manhole for example,so it would be more intuitive if the ribbon contained ...

It would be benefitial to allow drainage designers in ORD Drainage to use graphical elements in combination with terrains to define time of concentration components.

Currently, in order to determine one of the components of the Time of Concentration (Tc), ORD DU users have to jump completely out of the 'Catchment Properties' interface to determine the length and slope of the Tc element (since once you are in t...

DU RIM Elevation calculated from Ground Elevation offset

The RIM Elevation is a stagnant number once you enter an elevation it does not update in relation to any surface changes. RIM Elevation would be better suited for use if it can be defined with an offset. Another field would be needed: RIM Depressi...
