Using Mass Haul Diagrams

Use mass haul diagrams to display earthwork volumes along an alignment, based on sectional volume computation.

The use of mass haul diagrams helps designers and contractors understand where gross material movements occur and as key indicators used to compare the economies of alternative designs. These diagrams are typically presented along with profile views for design review. They are used to analyze the following aspects of the design:

To generate mass haul diagrams, you need an alignment, a sample line group, and a list of materials.
