DEFAULT

This component creates a flat bottom or V bottom ditch.


DITCH 3 - VERTICAL TIE

This component will vertically tie the bottom inside of the ditch to a feature. The inside slope (DitchInSlope) is maintained.


DITCH 6 - ROW WIDENING

Widen to the right of way offset. Slope stake is at ROW offset. Steepen slope if ditch is too deep.


DITCH 9 - HALF DITCH

Outside of ditch, useful when an alignment is along a ditch bottom.



TRENCH

This component will create a trench with a berm.

DITCH 1 - STANDARD

Conditionally creates a ditch. It checks to see if it is required using a probe. If the end of the probe is below ground the ditch is formed.


DITCH 4 - HORZ. & VERT. TIE

This component will attach a ditch component to a feature horizontally and vertically.


DITCH 7 - INSIDE ROW

Maintains user defined slopes inside the ROW. If the ditch is too deep, another slope is used to grade beyond the ROW.


SUB CUT 1

Cut into merged surface. The cut depth is measured from the attachent point. Usually placed before other components.


TRENCH 2

Simple trench. Can be used to widen/deepen existing trench.

DITCH 2 - BY ELEVATION

Rural road with 1 raised layer of surfacing above a base layer.




DITCH 5 - ROW WIDENING

Widen to the right of way offset. Grade out beyond ROW if ditch is too deep.


DITCH 8 - NOTCH CUT

This component will create a notch. A perpendicular is dropped to the merged surface then a notch is created. It closes to the merged surface.


SUB CUT 2 - UNDER SG

Subcut below sub-grade. Place in template after all other components.
