That is ... 

I'm learning c3d in english, but some times I dont understand well which part is which.

I need some schemas showing the parts and names of any common part of a road, highway, etc.

Any northamerican or english who could tell me where to get it ?

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks

One assumption you're making (and I can see why based on post from non-US uses) is that the US or North America has one standard. They can vary from State to State and even within a state. I've found that what I'd think of as the common name for component often doesn't match what it's called in Civil 3D. We do have the FHWA Standard Specifications but the States tend to mangle them in to their own form.

 

I would think you're best bet is to review the Subassembly Reference in Help. First go through the Subassemblies at a Glance section. Then review the ones relevant to your project.

 

If you have a specific question. Post back with an image and we'll see if we can help.

Thanks.

I'm searching something basic, almost for students.

I'd like to see, for example, a cross section or profile view with all the terminology for every component.....

 

A curb are going to be a curb in Texas and Iowa, aren't it?

 

Thanks.

Many government agencies publish design standards, with standard details etc.  I just tried a Google search for the CalTrans standards and found this link.  Chapter 60 in particular includes a whole series of definitions which may be useful.

Those were a couple of images from in-house.

 

THIS isn't exactly an engineering design book. But it covers the basics of design in Civil 3D.
