How to automatically calculate volumes for multiple soil layers in OpenRoads PowerCivil?

 I have 3 stacked terrain models (1. Existing Ground, 2. Topsoil Stripped and 3. Mountain) and a corridor cutting through all three terrains. When calculating End-Area Volumes, is it possible to automatically calculate/devide the Cut volume into these three soil-types, based on the terrain-models?

  • Yes. If you assigned a feature definition to substrata Terrain Model such as Existing_Rock_Surface then it is automatically set as "volume option=substrata". Then in End Area volume it is computed as such and if you use Earthworks_Quantities.xsl you will find required quantities.

    You can also check and change the type of surface in the End Area Volume panel under "Classification"
