Slope analysis

Slope checking after table placement

Slope checking is a post-table placement functionality. Meaning that it's not necessary to rerun generations whenever you wish to verify different slope limits.

The first tab in the new civil analysis window is relating to table slopes. Here you can set a certain slope value and indicate the tables which exceed that value. It's is possible to execute multiple iterations based on different allowed slope ranges.

The slope angle is measured according to the frame axis and the best way to understand it is using the Front-view tool.

We can easily see that the tables are following the slopes of the terrain and the software indicates how much is varying regarding the main axis. Having a closer look into one of the tables we can see how these slopes are obtained

When working with trackers, it's also possible to proceed with north and south-facing differentiation. This means, that software automatically identifies the frames and changes the interface, allowing an easy understanding of which structures will be affected in terms of energy production.

Those frames can be later filtered out in Layout information, therefore you can also quantify the impact of north and south-facing slopes on installed capacity.

In this same Civil analysis window, you can use the Show details button to populate the slope angles of each table and easily hide them by hitting Hide details.
