Set Up Mass Haulage Diagrams

Use the Mass Haulage Diagram Presentation tab to define the display of a mass haulage diagram. Vertical measurements on the diagram are based on a 100% scale. The diagram can be resized using the handles (small arrowheads) at the left edge of the pane.

Ways to access

Mass areas in the diagram

In a Mass Haulage Diagram, the mass areas are placed based on their distance coordinates. If multiple areas are at the same location along the distance axis, they are stacked vertically. Which mass area is above/below in the stack is determined by the level setting for each mass area on the Mass Area tab in the Object Properties Pane. For the cut areas, the highest level items are shown/printed first, then the lower ones. For the fill areas, the reversed order is applied.


Considered sub-projects

This section lists data (such as sub-projects, mass types, and haulage types) that are shown in the diagram based on the current filter.

Diagram Presentation

The zero line runs horizontally through the center of the cell. All mass areas above the zero line indicate cut areas. All mass areas below the line indicate fill areas. In addition, areas at the top and bottom of the chart indicate quantities that are not along the alignment's mainline. These mass areas at the top and bottom of the chart typically indicate extraction sites (borrow sites), dump sites (waste sites), and processing centers (crushing sites).

Note:  If you select a mass area, the mass type properties describe the kind of area, whether it is a cut, fill, waste, or stockpile element. If you use elements other than cut/fill, you have the option to display them on the bottom or top by checking the display on the top border of the diagram box.

Quantity and Haul Display

These options control bar graphs displayed inside the mass areas in the mass haulage diagram:

Boundary Values

Tip:  Boundary values can affect your displayed haul quantity. When you set a minimum value for your cut/fill area (e.g.,10,000), and you have a mass area with, for example 3000 m3, and you move all material in a fill, you might be surprised (when you display the haul quantity) that the vertical bar representing this value may not equal the height. The reason is the boundary value, which is used to improve visibility; it is not a strict value, but rather depends on the user-defined settings.
