MiTS 2.0.45.0 onward can let users to have the options to assign the berm drain width as part of the berm. We provide an option for users to either include the drain into the berm drain width calculation or not. Below are the steps on how to do it.

  1. Berm Drain Width is Included as part of the Berm Width

Go to;

Options > Project Parameters > Earthworks > Typical Slope > Slope Section > Tick Include vdrain in Berm Length

Image 1 Vdrain is included in berm  width setting

Include vdrain in Berm Length means that the vdrain is a part of the berm width. Based on the image 1, the berm width is set to be 1.5 m. Since berm drain width is included which defined by 0.3 m width, thus the berm width will be narrower (refer image 2).

Image 3 Narrower berm width since the berm drain width is included

2. Berm Drain Width is Not Included as Part of the Berm Width

Go to;

Options > Project Parameters > Earthworks > Typical Slope > Slope Section > Untick Include vdrain in Berm Length

Image 4 Vdrain is not included as part of the berm width setting

Unctiked “Include vdrain in Berm Length” means that the vdrain is not part of the berm width. Based on the Platform Editor setting, the berm width is set to be 1.5 m (refer image 5). Since berm drain width is not included, thus the berm width is measured as in the setting.
