Alignment Design and Volume Balancing

Updated July 16, 2021

This article applies to:
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry

In this section, we will explore some of the RoadEng features for alignment design and earthwork balancing. This exercise assumes that you are familiar with mouse editing of vertical and horizontal alignment.

We will also introduce several Softree Optimal features such as Design Time Costing, Optimal Haul Calculation, and Smart Pits.

These features are included in the basic RoadEng software and are very useful for speeding up workflow, comparing alignments, and reducing construction costs.
