Settings and Managers
This course introduces the configuration files and how to establish “Project Defaults”. Students learn how defining preferences and groups of preferences increases production by managing common dialog box settings.

The Surface Model
This course provides an overview on how to create and open digital terrain models (DTM). It continues discussing basic properties of a surface and the various ways a DTM can be displayed.

Horizontal Geometry
This course discusses how to open or create a Geometry project as well as a horizontal geometry. It will present a step by step approach on how to layout a horizontal geometry using one particular method. It will also show a second and third layout technique that could be used as well. And finally this course will present how to define the geometry stationing as well as how to display the stationing into CAD.

Profiles
Once a student has learned how to layout a horizontal geometry, this course will teach the student about how create a “Profile” so that they can then create a vertical geometry. Within this lesson the student will learn about many different settings. contained on the “Create Profile” dialog box that directly affect not only how the “Profile” looks but exactly what data is shown within the “Profile”.

Vertical Geometry
Once a student has learned how to layout a horizontal geometry and create a “Profile”, this course will teach the student about how a vertical geometry can be laid out. Within this lesson the student will learn a couple different vertical alignment layout options: Import from a DTM and the Vertical Curve Set tools. Each of these options is completely different and result in vastly different outcomes.

Typical Sections
This course will teach the student how to Open/Create/Review a template library. Once that is achieved and a student understands what the library is composed of, they will review some existing templates to get a better idea of what the individual templates are all about. And finally, students will learn how to create their own new template, an essential part of understanding the template library.

Roadway Models
This course will initially highlight the prerequisite items that need to be established before proceeding to the creation of a 3D model. Once all the prerequisite items are in order this course will continue with the steps required to set up a model file. This course will then teach the student the step by step process of adding all of the predetermined items to the Roadway Designer tool. The Roadway Designer tool is used to create the model and then the model will be run. And finally, students will review the model they just created and then they will learn how to create and save it as a surface (DTM).

Cross Sections
After the model is created and the surface is saved, students learn how to display the data in cross sections. There are many settings within the “Create Cross Section” dialog box and the student will learn what they all mean and what they do. Students will then learn how to update the data within the cross sections, how to calculate volumes and how to use the Cross Section Viewer tool.

InRoads V8i Road Essentials Advanced — Typical Sections

The Role of Templates
Templates are an integral part of the corridor creation process, but for someone new to InRoads software, it may be a little unclear as to why. This course provides students with the necessary background to know where templates fit into the overall road design process. Basic concepts are discussed with details on how to create, access and use a Typical Section library.

Working with an ITL (InRoads Template Library)
With a basic knowledge of how the InRoads Template Library (ITL) is used with roadway design projects, this course introduces the ITL dialog box, with an emphasis on the interface and options. Students learn what components make up a template, what makes them different, plus how to open and access an existing ITL. The course also covers how to properly organize an ITL, using folders and also applying a naming convention to help with the overall organization of an ITL.

Backbone Components
There are two different zones or sections in a complete template — the Backbone Components at the center with the End Condition (slopes) on the outside. This course presents the components that work within the Backbone section. Students learn how to work with simple and complex components, with details on how to assigned, review and edit constraints — the desired behavior when a component encounters external influences.

End Condition Components
There are two different zones or sections in a complete template — the Backbone Components at the center with the End Condition (slopes) on the outside. This course presents the End Condition components, the zones outside of the Backbone area. Referred to as the Cut/Fill zone, students learn how to prepare an InRoads Template Library (ITL) for creating End Condition components, as well as reviewing and editing the associated properties. Then the lessons show how to test End Condition components and resolve issues before they are used to model a corridor project.

Template Drag and Drop
Once an InRoads Template Library (ITL) includes an extensive number of components, any number of roadway templates can be created. This course discusses how to prepare an ITL to create a new template. Students learn how to drag and drop section details to build the Backbone, as well as adding Cut/Fill slopes. Additional functions are discussed, such as mirroring and merging components, as well as releasing constraints and testing end conditions.

Template Points and the DTM
With a completed template done, this course details how the template connects to the intelligent Digital Terrain Model (DTM). Students evaluate the new template, along with the DTM features, to see how settings and design choices impact the design surface outcome. The course discusses the power of using Names and Styles, as well as how to work with non-finished grade points.

Templates Revisited
There are additional tools beyond those used for the template creation process. This course explores what happens to points when a component is either dropped or moved onto another component. Students learn how to copy components between InRoads Template Libraries (ITL), export a template to a CAD drawing and work with multiple End Condition solutions.

Students learn how to work with the Corridor Management dialog box before generating their first corridor for the project.

Template Drops
Creating a Template Drop is an essentials part of any roadway design process. This course explains what defines a Template Drop by reviewing the Template Drop dialog box, and then executing the command. Students learn how to read the data provided by Roadway Designer. The course continues to discuss End Condition Exceptions, what they are and how they are used. Students review each process and how it impacts the road design, before they are reminded to save changes.

Transition Bands
A transition is required when there are variations between two template cross sections. This course introduces Transition Bands, the area between the two conflicting templates. Students review the color code assignments and learn how to work with the Edit Transition box. Manually connecting points between the two templates, they also learn how to preview the transition before applying the changes.

Model Considerations
There will always be simple roadway projects that require minimal design time. Unfortunately, not all projects are simple. This course demonstrates several important tools and functions that are designed to improve production when working with challenging projects. Students learn how to work with Point Controls and Parametric Constraints, as well as the value of adding Key Stations. The course also provides insights and offer tips for those who have to work with multiple InRoads Roadway Designer (IRD) files and corridors.

InRoads V8i Road Essentials Advanced — Cross Sections

Cross Section Overview
The final step in the roadway design process is to generate cross sections — vertical slices of the roadway design. This course starts with details on how to work with the Cross Sections dialog box. Students learn how the box is separated into sections, each section also referred to as a leaf, and the impact the various settings have when a cross section is created.

Create Cross Sections
With an understanding of how to properly work with the Create Sections dialog box, this course continues to demonstrate how cross sections are generated with InRoads, both simple and complex. Students learn the various ways to define the source path, as well as determine if cross sections are stacked or produced with a sheet border. Finally, the course shows how to review cross sections and determine what details to display.

More Cross Sections
This course continues the discussion on how to work with cross sections. Students learn how to review and rename existing cross section sets. The course demonstrates how to properly define values and apply annotation to a range of cross sections, as well as control what should be displayed.

End Area Volumes
Once all of the required cross sections are generated, the final step in the roadway project is to calculate the earthwork. This course discusses how to set the required options in order to properly generate End Area Volumes. Students learn how to present the results inside the CAD file, as a Mass Haul Diagram, as well as a multi-page XML report.

InRoads Settings, Styles and Symbology Library

Starting Up
This course starts at the very beginning of InRoads use, and covers the CAD package (MicroStation or AutoCAD) versus InRoads, the interface and more orientation to the settings that InRoads works with on a day-to-day basis. During this course, you will be introduced to some very important concepts that should be understood well before moving into production. In addition to that, you will cover the software interface and be shown how to move around and access the commands. After you are more comfortable understanding the relationship between CAD and InRoads, along with being able to confidently know what InRoads data will be (or is) loaded, you will be ready to get into the more detailed chapters of this course and onto the higher production aspects of working on a project.

Settings, Styles and Symbology
The Symbology Manager, the Style Manager and the Preference Manager. These Managers help you manage your dialog box settings, as well as the intelligent characteristics of the InRoads data (like, how elements display [color, line weight and line style] in the different InRoads view windows).

Surface Essentials
This course focuses on having an existing surface, but will transition into putting a surface model together from various sources. While these methods will be targeted at enhancing the existing surface, they can also be applied to the creation of a design surface.

Horizontal Geometry Tools
This geometry (points, lines and curves) course addresses only the horizontal aspect of the layout. The layout will be created from scratch while using the existing centerline (center of the road as you move along it) geometry as reference data. The project prerequisites are an understanding of what geometry layout is needed by the job being done, and the constraints and freedoms that one has with regards to the layout itself. These requirements will be illustrated within the labs for this course.

Vertical Geometry Tools
This course covers how the Geometry Project (the name given to all of the stored information of an InRoads project, roadway alignments, elevations, etc.) is structured and how the vertical alignment (elevation changes in a roadway project and how these fit together) fits into that hierarchy. Operationally speaking, InRoads vertical geometry layout is very much like its parent horizontal geometry layout (which deals with the area the road covers including the roadway itself, curbs, shoulders, areas near that must be cut or filled, etc.) This course also shows the vertical aspect of the layout which will be created from scratch through our step by step labs just like the Horizontal Geometry Tools course.

Profiling
This course touches the topic of profiling (dealing with the side or profile view of a roadway project) and its definition since there are two widely used variations on this term: as the vertical design itself and as the “sectional view” sliced along a path (both of which are used in InRoads). InRoads Help defines a profile as “A graph showing elevations extracted from one or more surfaces along a defined path, such as along an alignment.”
