About ActCAD 2019 Railroad Section Software

Railways are  the ancient and the widely used road transportation mode and  has been diversifying with a gradual change in time. As the speed of the commute increases with the need of the civilization, so is the speed of its construction. Railroad section software designing and planning require a lot of knowledge expertise and skills.

Before the structural subject is constructed down, the planning procedure is scrutinized to avoid structural failure. Summarizing the estimated time of a railroad section software construction is quantifiable to many man hours. Considering the preliminary stage of a railroad section software, the designing and planning of the subject have also transformed from a manual drafting to the usage of CAD Applications.

This reduced the work time frame and also minimized the margin of error. So the main concern for opting the advanced technology in drafting the plans of a railroad was the increased accuracy in a minimal work hour. Corresponding to the scenario of technical advancements, several modules are getting developed to get the best of the work in the stipulated time.

Why ActCAD 2019 Rail Road Section Software?

The railroad section software designing involves several concepts to be considered in which we find banking and cutting of the railway section playing an integral part. In the practical scenario, during the preliminary surveying, the auto-level used takes the coordinates of the area marking up the troughs and depressions on the mean sea level considered.  

These coordinates are note down for further and processed on an excel sheet which is later produced as a drawing format. Again the manual drafting of the drawing in CAD platform (replacing the stereotype hand drawings) requires lots of hard work and man-hours to produce the final output. Even after the careful and logical drafting of the railroad section plans there is the margin of errors.

To reduce the hassle experienced in manual drafting with errors, ActCAD 2019 RailRoad Section software has incorporated a method. That is the Banking and Cutting Module which takes the coordinates from the Auto-Level in the Excel Format and drafts down the points to CAD Drawing with a simple click . And as it is an automated process, you can be assured to have precision and error-free CAD Drawing output.

Banking Of Rail Section

The coordinates obtained from Auto Level gives the draftsman the general idea to manage the depths and troughs in the proposed area where the railway track has to be constructed. It also gives the coordinates corrected up to the level where the track can be laid on a plane surface.

These coordinates are then taken down to the CAD platform for drafting and based on the Levels created, the areas and volumes of the depression fillings and troughs removal calculated. Then after the proposed formation level decided over the chainage of the track. These all information laid down on the model space of a CAD Platform to come up with the railroad sections.
ActCAD 2019 Rail Road Sections eases the work as you have to find the coordinates correct rest area calculation, volume calculation and proposed Formation Level of the Rail Road Section drafted by software in fraction of seconds.

Cutting Of Rail Section

Cutting of Rail Road section refers to the area of the earth dug down to lay the railway track on a plane surface. This cutting of railroad section software depends on the pre-existing ground level available in the area of construction. The coordinates level of excavation up to propose levels are again obtained from the Auto Level.

These coordinates listed and processed on to an excel sheet. After several calculations on the coordinates recorded the area of the earth to be dug out and the volume of the excavation estimated. These all things if manually done takes a lot of time and uses many skillful brains to work out the railroad section.

In such scenario, ActCAD 2019 RailRoad Section software comes out very handy. No more skillful brains required. Record the coordinates and let the knowledge-based engineered software do the work automatically.
