Civil 3D Hydrology and Piping

Hydrology and piping components of AutoCAD® Civil 3D® have expanded dramatically with the expansion of pipe layout, design and drafting tools, the inclusion of Hydraflow Hydrographs, Storm Sewers and Express, and the release of Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis. Other companion products from Autodesk® Labs and SmartDraft® expand these capabilities even further.

Hands-on class offerings in Civil 3D Hydrology and Piping provide design professionals with real-project exposure to these tools in small class settings, providing an opportunity to explore the programs in a training situation facilitating direct exchange with the instructors.

CivilTraining, LLC’s courses are registered Continuing Education classes with the AIA and have received approval in meeting continuing education/professional development requirements for numerous states. Note: Each CivilTraining, LLC course provides relevant continuing education/professional development approval criteria.


Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis (2 Days typical)

Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis Extension (SSA) is an advanced, powerful, and comprehensive modeling package for analyzing and designing urban drainage systems, stormwater sewers, and sanitary sewers. This training course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the Autodesk SSA capabilities for engineers, designers, project managers, and municipal engineers of all experience levels who analyze, design, or review urban drainage stormwater and wastewater infrastructure.

This training course will explain how to use the Autodesk SSA software that comes with AutoCAD® Civil 3D® and AutoCAD® Map 3D, and will concentrate on demonstrating how to apply the software to everyday stormwater and sanitary sewer projects. Tips and tricks on increasing overall proficiency and productivity are provided throughout the training. Upon completion of this course, participants will have a comprehensive knowledge of the Autodesk SSA software and will be able to create, maintain, run, and analyze stormwater and wastewater models with complete confidence.

The primary focus of this training course is to provide "hands-on" experience. Participants will learn by doing, while using the Autodesk SSA software hands-on. The lectures and lab sessions will concentrate on demonstrating how to use the software in "real world" engineering applications. Participants will develop their own stormwater and wastewater infrastructure models and simulate different stormwater and wastewater management alternatives.

As an advanced level course, the Storm and Sanitary Analysis course can be tailored to the individual project requirements of the participants. The course is typically a two-day program based on the time required to cover the core level of the program, but the length can be varied to suit individual client requirements and desire to use real project data within the course.

AutoCAD Civil 3D Pipe Networks (1 Day)

This class explores the pipe layout and drafting tools in AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, and their application in typical project applications for storm, sanitary and water distribution systems. Civil 3D uses a pipe network model, providing a powerful system for representing the interactions of pipes and structures within a system. The Civil 3D pipe network links to analysis and design tools in the Storm and Sanitary Analysis portion of Civil 3D, providing data to and depicting data from this robust analysis package. Detailed analysis operations in the Storm and Sanitary Analysis product are covered in a separate training class.

This class provides insight into the development and use of prototyped pipe network settings, deployed through template drawings, that make required pipe elements available to all designers. The class then examines in detail the creation and editing of pipe network data, as well as Civil 3D pipe annotation capabilities and the ability to produce design deliverables.

Topics include:
  • Civil 3D Pipe Network Concepts
  • Civil 3D Pipe Network Parts Lists and Part Availability
  • Civil 3D Pipe and Structure Styles
  • Civil 3D Pipe and Structure Rules
  • Creating Civil 3D Pipe Networks
  • Civil 3D Pipe Data in Profile
  • Editing Civil 3D Pipe Networks
  • Managing Pipe Network Data

Autodesk River Analysis (2 Days typical)

Autodesk River Analysis Extension is a sophisticated river modeling software package that supports HEC-RAS within the AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2012 and AutoCAD® Map 3D 2012 environment. River Analysis makes it easier than ever before to compute water surface profiles for modeling rivers, bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, floodplain and floodway delineations, stream diversions, channel improvements, and split flows.

This training course will explain how to use the Autodesk River Analysis software, and will concentrate on demonstrating how to apply the software to everyday engineering projects. Tips and tricks on increasing overall proficiency and productivity are provided throughout the training. Upon completion of this course, participants will have a comprehensive knowledge of the Autodesk River Analysis software and will be able to create, maintain, run, and analyze HEC-RAS river hydraulic models with complete confidence.

The primary focus of this training course is to provide "hands-on" experience. Participants will learn by doing, while using the Autodesk River Analysis software hands-on. The lectures and lab sessions will concentrate on demonstrating how to use the software in "real world" engineering applications. Participants will develop their own HEC-RAS models and perform floodplain encroachment analysis, bridge and bridge scour computations, culvert analysis, and other HEC-RAS modeling work.

As an advanced level course, the River Analysis course can be tailored to the individual project requirements of the participants. The course is typically a two-day program based on the time required to cover the core level of the program, but the length can be varied to suit individual client requirements and desire to use real project data within the course.
