Maximum Chord Length can be specified for Horizontal Curves

A new version (10.2.6) of our Curve and Grade Utilities are available

This version incorporates the following modifications to the ‘Construct Horizontal Curves’ utility:

  • Added a textbox to the dialog to allow the user to specify a ‘Maximum Chord Length’.  Whenever the distance between two points exceeds this value, the curve between these points will be considered to be straight.

This enhancement prevent the miscalculation of curvature around arcs that bend sharply with minimal vertices near the bend.
