Attached are survey points that created the surface of a road embankment portion that caved-in. The road is very near a reservoir shoreline.
1. How can a surface profile be produce? I/'ve use line to change it into an alignement and then create a proile , then a
profile view. But the the surface profile is missing.
2.the points having higher elevation are the top edge( road level) of the cave-n . A few few shots were take before the shorline elevations.
2. What the best way to come up with the rock volume to fill the cave-in given this surveying points., Also the shoreline elevation will be lowered some more while work is being done since the fill is not allowed to fall in the reservoir.
Pick the profile view object, right click, select Profile View Properties.
One the Profiles tab be sure there is a check mark next to your surface.
If the surface profile is not there, pick the alignment in plan view. On the ribbon, find Surface Profile and create a surface profile. It will be added to the profile view automatically.
Regarding how to calc earthworks. You can create a surface using the collapsed bank and another that shows the surface with the bank in place. Create a third surface that is a TIN Volume Surface which compares the other two. In the Surface Properties of that surface, go to the Statistics tab and expand Volume.
