AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lift Station Pumps Not Operating Correctly?

Apr 15, 2013

I'm modeling a sanitary sewer network in SSA. The network consists of a gravity system that collects wastewater from several buildings and coveys it to a lift station. Two pumps at the lift station pump wastewater through a 6-inch force main that is approximately 1,300 ft long and it is not connected to any other force mains so no other pumps are pumping into the system. There is one gravity main at the end of the force main that delivers the wastewater to the headworks of the wastewater treatment plant. The pumps are rated at 430 gpm at 75 ft, with a shutoff head of 110 ft.

The problem is that the model says that 1,100 gpm is flowing through the force main with one pump running. This is not possible as the TDH of the pump would need to be 220 ft to deliver that much flow. I'm using a Type 3 curve to define the pump. The force main is defined as "Circular Force Main" with a Hazen C factor of 120 and Manning's n of 0.013.

I've deleted the pumps and curves and reinserted them, but that didn't change anything. I'd like to avoid rebuilding the entire model

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reusable Cut Volume By Station

Oct 22, 2012

Within my road corridor, I have one section where the excavated material cannot be used as fill elsewhere.  I see a place where I can specify a factor for reusable volume when I compute earthwork materials.  But it looks like I can only use 1 factor for the whole corridor.  Is there a way to say from Sta XX+XX to Sta XX+XX the reusable fill factor is 0, but the rest of the project it is something else?

All I can think to do is copy the quantity report to Excel and manually change the reusable volume in that station range to 0.  But, since the report comes in as just numbers (no formulas), I then have to enter all the formulas to recalculate the volumes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Station Modification

Nov 21, 2012

When an alignment needs to have stationing modified, what is the best process for this when a proposed grade line and corridor have been established?  I know the proposed grade line can be edited via edit profile geometry>profile grid view. 

But what from I have found each station has to be modified individually, which is cumbersome.  I would hope to be able to modify the proposed grade line by changing only the beginning station and the rest would update, similar to the alignment.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Get Station Label Increment

Aug 13, 2012

I have an alignment that starts at station 1+00 and runs through 20+00.

By right clicking the station labels and editing the label group, I have updated my major station increments to 200' and my minor stations (ticks only) to 100'. The problem is, I want the 200' increments to begin at my starting station (1+00), so that the labels would read 1+00, 3+00, 5+00, etc.

As it is now, the above settings make my labels read: 1+00, 2+00, 4+00, 6+00, etc.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Station Equation In Profile?

Aug 8, 2013

I have a station equation in my alignment that happens to fall in a vertical curve in my profile.  I'm using the PVC and PVT station and elevations from the plans and the K value to draw a Fixed Vertical Curve.  It doesn't seem to be taking into consideration the station equation.  It is calculating the wrong PVI station and elevation.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adding A Station Equation

Jul 20, 2012

I'm trying to figure out the best way to split an alignment so that I do not disturb the stationing of the alignment beyond a station equation.  I have a very long alignment with a finaized design.  I have a design change to make, which means I need to move a section of the alignment, and I want to do it without changing the stationing past a defined point so that it does not affect the design (corridor) past that point.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Add Station And Offset To A Point

Jan 7, 2013

I currently have a drawing with a road alignment and stationing.  Is there a way to automatically station and offset a point that is not on the alignment line?  

For instance, our alignment line is the centerline of the road.  I need a station and offset of the new right of way line points at different places in the drawing.  I want to use the alignment stationing to have it automatically create the station and offset at the point I choose.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Re-Station Alignment After Editing?

Jan 13, 2013

After editing an alignment in my drawing the stationing did not update to the new edited alignment. I tried selecting the alignment and in alignment properties changing the end stationing, but I get the error "Either outside alignment limits or within gap created by a station equation". The stationing stops at my first edit point 66+24 when the total length of edited alignment is 103+15. Is there a way to re-station alignment.

Is there a way to label or list a station at a specific elevation? I know how to list and label an elevation at a given station but I need to know where a specific (given) elevation is located on an alignment or profile. I don't care if this is listed or labeled on the alignment or profile, I just need to be able to get a station at a given elevation.

This type of station label is the standard by the Deutsche Bahn, so it's not that far-fetched.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment Station Offset Label

May 19, 2012

I am trying for last hour but cannot make this work. I have attached screen shot of a dynamic label with some text. The problem is as you add degree symbols and inch (") symbols and paratheses to the text, the leader starts to intersect the station value. I want to move the leader a little below the sta. value so the station vallue is readable. When I move the leader the text moves with it. I tried everything in edit label text option but cannot seem to fix it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Alignment PI Station Report Settings?

Feb 1, 2012

I am trying to export an Alignment PI Station Report. I've set all the settings I can find to round coordinates to 4 decimal places, Distance to 2 decimal places, and Direction to the nearest second (DMS). When I execute the PI Station Report, the Distance is 3 decimal places and the Direction is to the nearest 100th of a second. how to get these to the correct decimal place? I managed to change them to the correct decimal place for a Station & Curve Report, but not for the PI Station Report. Also, for the Northing/Easting coordinates, I want to remove the commas (for example, a Northing of 3,058,715.3774' should read 3058715.3774').

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Data Band At Wrong Station

Jun 13, 2013

A coworker who is no longer with us set up the data band styles & settings in our template, and they were working fine in 2011.  Then, on a new job in 2011, I encountered this problem.  I gave up.

Now I'm working in 2013.  The template was brought forwards, so it's the same settings, and I'm hitting the same problem as before.  The difference is this time I'm working on a really long profile, and I really really want the bands to work.

Here's the problem.

The ones I checked in blue are not part of the data band.  They are profile view labels, and they show the correct stations.

The ones circled in red are the data band.  As you can see I need to work on my gap settings, but that's not my problem.  The problem is the location of these labels.  There is indeed a PVI at station 1+165, but the label is 40m away from that station!  I don't know where to start digging to find the setting to tell that label to move 40m to the right, and tell 1+135.86 to move 20m to the right.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get Start And End Station Of Each Projected Objects?

Sep 24, 2012

is it possible to get the start and end station of each projected objects?

see picture. what i am doing is based on the different colour. they are geotechnical requirement for the minimul fill depth. so i am thinking about making a program to put in a profile for me and then put horizontal curves. so don't need to do anything by hand. good starting point at least. save a lot of time and not really hard to code either.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Starting And Ending Station?

Mar 11, 2008

They are read-only, so seem to reflect the start and end of the profile tangents.Would you ever not set those to the alignment start and end stations?

I tried setting them to stations before and after the alignment start and end stations, that did not allow me to reach my goal of allowing addition of PVI's before alignment start and after end.

I know you can have the profile extend beyond the alignment, it works fine if you add the PVI's with the C3D toolbar.I can't figure out how to do it with the API though.
