Determining Dam Permit Volumes in Civil 3D

I am looking to find out if the is a way of generating a stage storage table or volume table showing only the volume in the pond from the lowest intersecting existing ground contour to the top of the pond (to determine what would spill out of the pond in case of a berm failure) and if Civil 3D could make the determination of where that intersecting point is.

Hi Dave B,


There is no direct way to generating the Volume table, however I think you can achieve this using the GetBoundedVolumes() and ExtractContours() .NET API.


You can get some code snippet on GetBoundedVolumes() and ExtractContours() in our Infrastructure DevBlog page (links given below) :


Hope this helps.
