Simulating Adding RipRap

I'm working on a project that involves me simulating the effects of adding riprap to an existing surface in 4 areas for a project that already has P&P's and X-Sections made. The steps that I'm currently trying are: 1) Take the Existing Surface in the X-Sections, trace a p-line over the Existing surface, offset that p-line 2.5', extend the p-line to the flowline of the channel, square off the top (this should give me what the extents of the riprap should be).2) cropping the surface, 3) Raising each surface 2.5 feet, 4) creating a feature line, giving the elevations of the existing ground of the creek, then adding the feature line to its respective area. 5) Cut X-Sections. 6) Check the cut X-Sections with what the "Proposed Surface" should be close to looking like from (1). If anyone has any suggestions or another way of achieving what I'm trying to accomplish, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

James A. Stretesky

  • Hi James,

    plase follow general best practices and also MicroStation Programming forum best practices:This is general "developers and programming forum", used primarily for discussions about programming for product that have not own specialized programming forums (like MicroStation, civil, geo etc.). You have not specified product and version you use, even not programming language and API, so you question can hardly be answered.

    Please provide more information and if you question relates to product like MicroStation (or OBD, ORD or OCM), I recommend to move your post to a proper forum. You can use More > Move tool under your original post to move the post between forums.
