Description

A built element whose length greatly exceeds its thickness and often also its width, usually of a single material laid on site on top of another horizontal or nearly horizontal built element. A course is distinctive from a earthworks element in that a course is a graded granular (which can be bound or unbound) material that is generally processed in some fashion, where as earthworks elements are soil earthen based structure that can be formed by removal and transport of general ground material. Structurally a course does not have capacity to carry loads over open span, or to be removed or replaced as a single unit. examples of courses include: * Graded aggregate layers * Graded sand layers * Cement bounded material (CBM) * Asphalt layers

Properties

Indicates the ambient temperature at which the course is applied

Total gross volume of the object. Openings, recesses, enclosed objects and projections are not taken into account.

The length of the object.

The nominal overall length of the object. The size information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In case of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the size properties, provided in the attached property set, the geometric parameters take precedence.

The nominal thickness of the object. The size information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In case of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the size properties, provided in the attached property set, the geometric parameters take precedence.

The nominal overall width of the object. The size information is provided in addition to the shape representation and the geometric parameters used within. In cases of inconsistency between the geometric parameters and the size properties, provided in the attached property set, the geometric parameters take precedence.

The nominal overall mass of material per area covered by the course.

The geometric thickness of the object.

Volume of the element.

Indicates the weather conditions during the application of the course
