Offers an innovative blend of core civil engineering concepts and thorough Autodesk Civil 3D instruction. It moves beyond a how-to manual, to explain why the software produces specific results and how it can be used to solve specific civil engineering problems. Flexible in design, the book begins with an overview of the software and its interface, introduces a comprehensive design project and then covers advanced usage of each of the software's capabilities. The book uses screen shots, dialogue boxes, CAD images, and digital AutoCAD files to introduce the procedures and applications of Autodesk Civil 3D. Emphasizes appropriate theories, formulas, algorithms and computational methods in the first half of each chapter. Discusses how to use the software to solve specific civil engineering problems in the second half of each chapter. Emphasizes civil engineering concepts within the context of the Autodesk Civil 3D software. Helps users understand the formula behind the automation, giving them a depth of knowledge that makes them more efficient and effective on the job. Shows how to use the software and the specific features and commands of the program. Shows how to maximize the software's capabilities to solve specific civil engineering problems. Civil Engineering professionalsThis routine is useful because it also works inside other AutoCAD commands and references the alignment in question. It can be used to draw manholes at a station offset from an alignment. 1. ... Type CIRCLE or pick it from the Draw toolbar. 4.
