Analysis for Civil Projects
Understanding how your design affects the natural and physical environment can help you improve the design earlier when the cost of changes is lower. From understanding how hard surfaces on the site will cause more runoff to understand how window placement will affect energy use, this module introduces you to the various type of analysis you can do to make your design better.
Track vehicle movement and access in the project to win better work. Learn how to run a Swept Path Analysis in Autodesk Vehicle Tracking to check vehicle movement in and around the project site according to the proposed horizontal and vertical design.
Welcome to this introductory module to Traffic Simulation, an Infraworks feature able to run simulations computed on the cloud that are used by Civil and Transport Engineers to validate and confirm proposals while designing roads, highways, intersections, parking lots, etc., in no time.
Traffic modeling and simulation is particularly useful in congested conditions, where the free-flow relationships between flow, speed and density no longer apply. The Traffic Analyst Panel is an advance feature that will allow us to mimic real-life data scenarios, which enables us to extract insights to validate proposals.
Once our traffic proposals are validated with real data, there are additional analysis tools we can use to emulate an as-close-as-possible-to-reality environment in order to add efficiency and save time in future. The more analysis within a conceptual stage, the less (costly) amendments during further stages.
