Template Details: End Conditions

Create Template - End Conditions

End Conditions:

End Conditions within the FLH Template Library have different properties. The following folders containing specific End Conditions have been pre-defined within the library: Daylight Slope, Ditch, Fill, and Slope Tables. When using the template library, some properties of these end conditions can be revealed by selecting the Active Template tab and by using the Display options (as shown in the image below).

End Condition Example 1

End Conditions are template components which are used to model cut and fill treatments. They are added to the end of simple, constrained, and unconstrained components. End Conditions are created like other template components. End Conditions consist of template points and individual components, and appear as line segments. End Conditions are different than simple, constrained, unconstrained, null point, and overlay/stripping components because they have the ability to target surfaces, elevations, alignments, and surface features.

Target Types:

Target Types are defined only for End Condition components, and are a property of that component. Target Type specifies the type of target the End Condition is seeking.

End Condition Target Examples

Priority:

Priorities for End Conditions need to be established. Each condition will be tested in a specific order. That order is called the priority, which is numeric, and is assigned during end condition creation. The most desirable are assigned the lowest priority numbers. The desirable condition, and the first condition to be tested, is a priority of 1. The next condition to be tested will have a priority of 2, and so on. Priority is used when more than one end condition starts at the same point.

Properties:

Properties for End Condition Settings need to be considered when applying end conditions. These settings need to be enabled or disabled to obtain the desired result.

Testing:

Testing End Conditions prior to and during end condition creation will simulate how the end conditions will behave during modeling, without using the Roadway Designer. Non-solved end conditions, and their child components, are displayed in dashed lines. Normal components and solved end conditions are displayed as solid lines. The display has all the standard windowing commands and scrollbars
