SUDA - Spread Slope

Make it easier to manage longitudinal spread slope. It's nice to input the slope in the properties per node, but consider making it integrated to the gutters used during bypass flow drawing of gutters.

RM Bridge Envelopes for Shell Forces

I would like to start using RM Bridge with shell elements for transverse analysis, however, I have just found out that currently it does not provide envelope results for shell forces, this is an essential tool for live load transverse analysis.

RM Bridge update to use the correct AASHTO reduction factor for reinforced/prestressed concrete based on tensile strain in reinforcing at ultimate limit state.

The current RM bridge ultimate capacity calculations allow for material reduction factors only, which are not used by AASHTO for reinforced and prestressed concrete. AASHTO concrete reduction factors for flexure and P-M capacities are based on the...

Place 1 Cross Section per Sheet (or other predefined number of cross sections)

We want to place only one cross section per sheet so that once a pdf is created, the user can flip through the pdf pages quickly and each cross section appears in the same spot. We can sort of trick this by changing the spacing, but it would be mu...

Model a straight bridge on a curved alignment

The ability to create a straight bridge when the alignment transitions from tangent to a horizontal curve on the bridge. Currently the deck ends are controlled by the bridge skew from a radial line at the end of the deck rather than from the tange...

Automate the assignment of a node's sump offset based on largest connecting pipe's wall thickness

We are looking for a workflow where the Sump depth value can be set to the thickness of the "largest pipe" connected to a node. When the user places a node, if there is an option to set the sump depth to the thickness of the pipe, then it would au...

Channels Attach to other nodes besides headwall

If ditches do become channel features, KYTC would need channels to then be able to attach to other node types besides headwalls since we have many conditions and locations where they outlet into inlets of various types.

Ditches be channel features

It would be wonderful if ditches were channel features so that they could be treated as surface features like gutters are to get head on inlet.

Custom Grate Spacing and Sizes

It would be amazing if we could utilize our own grate spacing for calculating the head on inlets. KYTC has several grates that don't quite match with what is in the delivered system, and this may affect the depth of the head on the inlet.

Element Templates Point to Multiple Cells

At KYTC we like to show the vaults of drainage structures, in order to do that S&S drew them for us. ORD does that in 3D, however, we turn the 3D off when producing plans. It would help in the case that we could point to two cells (one that ma...
