AutoCAD Civil 3D software gives civil engineers some great tools out of the box to perform hydraulics and hydrology studies; but if you dig a little deeper, you can truly bring out the "I" in Building Information Modeling (BIM) for civil engineers. This is a lab session in which we will utilize AutoCAD Civil 3D software parcels for an integrated solution for watershed area delineation, hydrologic analysis calculations, and drainage map production. We will work in a highly customized hydrology workflows template that includes parcel object and label styles setup, specifically to produce drainage maps with dynamic hydrology calculations updating as the watersheds are edited. We will finish by exporting our drainage map out for more complex analyses in Storm and Sanitary Analysis (SSA).
- Learn how to utilize AutoCAD Civil 3D software Parcels to perform hydrology analyses and prepare drainage maps
- Learn how to utilize label expressions to perform automated hydrology calculations integrated with your drainage map production
- Learn how to create dynamic drainage tables to summarize the hydrology model information
- Learn how to export your drainage maps to Storm and Sanitary Analysis (SSA) for more detailed calculations
