Hi Mr Malik,

  You have done the great job and thanks a lot for sharing road alignment calculation spread sheet. I am using this spreadsheet to calculate the Tunnel alignment  and  very useful for me. Thanks a lot.

Thank bwana Malik for your good work, am using one of your spreadsheets road alignment calculation v104 and following are the problems so far am facing.

1.V CURVES: When i change the first(custom) chainage, it still computes the pvc elevation. eg. my pvi chainage is 0+101, curve length 200m then i expect the pvc chainage to be 0+001 and if i want chainages of 10m the next chainage after pvc will be 0+010 of which i used as my custom but the elevation i got was for pvc station. the same problem with horizontal alignment. pliz bwana Malik help me for that.

Update 20120429.1039P - just sent Paul a sample working spreadsheet to play with via regular email.   Perhaps we can improve it for ease and automation together or with others interested in making improvements and using.

Hello Mr Breisch,


 I have created my own spreadsheet...but it is not as efficient as it could be. You enter each bs and fs and a beginning elev. But it is a two step process to calculate hi and next elev. Once it is all entered you can edit it globally because it is all dependent.


I am familiar with formulas, I created a spreadsheet to take gps data from grid to ground within granted tolerances...but not familiar with if then statements in excel. I have taken fortran,basic etc... and familiar with if then statements.

ok I'll be aware of your concerns


Thank you for getting back to me.

--------------------------- previous below.....

Before I send anyone my spreadsheet that simulates a field book level loop complete with automatic calculations, I have questions and will need you to email me and let me know if you found or created what you needed.

Why not create your own spreadsheet to do what you want?

Have you tried?

Are you familiar with formulas and if statements?

Before I send my sheet, it is important to note that one should copy it to back it up because each time you use it, you will want to change the data and may want to arrange it while preserving the formulas so that it will calculate correctly.

Since you will have Point ID,  +, HI, -, Elevation, & description columns, you will need to be aware of when you do a turning point and make sure it is computing a new HI to be used till you go on to the next turning point.

I normally do not use this blog post system here but I just sent a message to a guy looking for such a spreadsheet.   I own the gbreisch.com domain.  You can visit my website at gbreisch.com for all my direct & current contact information if you want to email me about getting a copy or example of this spreadsheet I created years ago.
