In this course, you will learn how to design a road with AutoCAD Civil 3D software from the basics. We will be doing this as a project from start to end. The software version we use is Autodesk Civil 3D 2020. Any Civil 3D version newer than Civil 3D 2018 can be used to follow this course.
Before doing this course it would be an advantage if you have some insight into AutoCAD basics. This course is created more related to a Highway Engineering background. So the Engineers or Engineering students would find this very useful to start their carrier as a Highway Design Engineer.
The project objective is to connect a City to an Industrial zone with a two-lane two-way road with a design speed of 50km/h.
We will be using AASHTO 2011 design guidelines as the design reference when doing the designs.
