Template Details: Component Library

Template Library - Barriers:

There are two Barrier Components included in the library. The components are shown in the Template Library directory structure below. Each component is a closed shape that includes predefined points. Typically, points within each Barrier Component have constraints applied in various ways to restrict movement of the component.

Template Library - Curbs:

Three Curb Components are included in the library. The components are shown in the Template Library directory structure below. Each component is a closed shape that includes predefined points. Typically, each point in the top surface of a curb component is constrained by both horizontal distance and slope, to the adjacent point in the top surface that is closest to the front edge of the gutter. The point located at the front edge of the gutter is an unconstrained attachment point, which receives it constraints when connected to another component. Each point in the bottom surface of the curb and gutter component is constrained both vertically and horizontally to the point directly above it.

Template Library - Guardrail Widening:

There are seven Guardrail Widening Components included in the library. The components are shown in the Template Library directory structure below. The Guardrail - Slope Component is a combined multilayer component that was created using the individual components from the Guardrail Components folder. Each component layer has parametric constraints applied. The point located at the front edge of the component is an unconstrained attachment point, which receives it constraints when connected to another component.

Template Library - Medians:

There are twenty two types of Median Components included in the library. The different Median Types are shown in the Template Library directory structure below. Each Median Type does not contain use of any End Conditions or End Condition prioritization. Each component has combinations of a Crowned Median, Flat Bottom Ditch Median, V-Ditch Median, Concrete Median, or Straight Line Median. For each Median type, there is functionality and attachment locations based on either left or right side placement with other backbone components.

Template Library - Misc:

Two Misc Components are included in the library. A Parkway Component is available to use for the area between the curb and sidewalk. Also, a S/W Buffer Component can be applied to the back of a sidewalk component. Each component has parametric contraints applied for Slope and Width.

Template Library - Overlay:

Eight Overlay Components are provided. Two combined components were created from the components contained within the Overlay Components folder. The combined Overlay Component has a Top with three layers of material above collapsed Milling and Leveling components. The Overlay and Widening Component has a Top with three layers of material above collapsed Milling and Leveling components as well as foreslope components. Parametric constraints have been applied to each component.

Template Library - Paved Ditch:

There are three Paved Ditch Components included in the library. Each Paved Ditch option has a different curb type used. Type 1 Curb, Type 2 Curb & Gutter, and Type 3 Curb. Each differnet type has the same pavement parametrcis applied but each curb type parametrics are different.

Template Library - Pavement:

There are four combined Pavement Components each assembled with five layers of material. They each have parametrics applied and have different closure options. Safety Edge, Safety Edge/Daylight Slope, Slope, and Vertical. The individual layers and respective closure for each layer are contained in the Pavement Components subfolder. The Four combined types were assembled from these individual components.

Template Library - Retaining Walls:

Ten types of Retaining Walls are included. Cut Wall, Fill Wall, GTSR MSE Wall, Guardwall, MSE Wall, Parapet Wall, Rockery Wall, SMSE Wall, and Soil Nail Wall. All of the walls have one common similarity in that they each require a plan graphic element be imported as an alignment with the respective style, or drafting standard. Each Retaining Wall Component requires this style presence to trigger the wall to be drawn. It is important to use the correct style (drafting standard) with the correct wall (component).

NOTE: Using a plan graphic to trigger the wall to be drawn creates a cross section and plan view relationship. The presence of the plan view graphic helps the designer know the locations where retaining walls exist. Should the designer NOT need to know where in plan view the wall exists, there are retaining wall templates provided (in the 'Retaining Walls No_PVG_required' folder) that do not require a plan view graphic to trigger a wall to be drawn. The designer may simply add a retaining wall to the roadway template being developed and wherever the template is applied along the corridor, the retaining wall will appear.

IMPORTANT: In some cases the designer may want to control a retaining wall using a GEOPAK Chain or Profile. This can still be accomplished using Roadway Designer. Control of a retaining wall using a chain or profile is accomplished by importing a chain and profile through Corridor Modeler, then, applying a point control to the specific point within the retaining wall template.

Since ANY point in a template can have a point control applied, the designer should first test the movement of the point within the retaining wall template before applying the point control.

Depending upon how points are constrained to one another within the retaining wall template, changes may need to be made for the wall to move properly based on the movement of the point that needs to follow the chain or profile. Be carefull to analyze the retaining wall after applying a chain or profile point control in Roadway Designer. If Parametric Constraints have been applied prior to applying point controls, values should be verified that they are still valid. Moving one retaining wall point may not neccessarily mean that the adacent retaining wall point will move as expected. Points within retaining walls may not be constrained to one another in a manner that follows simple visual logic.

Template Library - Shoulders:

There are four combined Shoulder Components each assembled with five layers of material. They each have parametrics applied and have different closure options. Safety Edge, Safety Edge/Daylight Slope, Slope, and Vertical. The individual layers and respective closure for each layer are contained in the Shoulder Components subfolder. The Four combined types were assembled from these individual components.
