After installing HDM-4 Version 2.10 or greater, the option to view graphical reports for concrete pavements is not present on the screen. By default, they should be available in the "Deterioration / Works Effects" folder as shown below:
If you have updated a previous version of HDM-4, the reports definition file may not be updated with the new reports included to avoid overwriting any changes you may have made to the file yourself.
You should manually add the reports to your report list. To do this follow the instructions below.
1. From within an analysis, view the existing report definitions by clicking on the "Generate Reports" workflow button (you will have to perform an analysis prior to doing this).
2. Click on the “Show report management functions” button
3. If you wish to put the reports in their own folder (as shown above) click on the "New Folder" button. Give a name to the new folder and click "OK". Select this new folder.
4. For each of the reports you wish to add, click on the “Add report” report button and browse to your reports directory to select each of the concrete reports template files. Typically they will be found in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\HDM-4 Version 2\Reports\English", but may be different depending upon how you have installed the software. Define a Report Name and click OK:
The five template names and suggested ["report title"] are as follows:
- Concrete - Cracked Slabs by Section Alternative.rpt ["Concrete - Cracked Slabs by Section Alternative (JP only)"]
- Concrete - Deteriorated Cracks by Section Alternative.rpt ["Concrete - Deteriorated Cracks by Section Alternative (JR only)"]
- Concrete - Failures by Section Alternative_MDB.rpt ["Concrete - Failures by Section Alternative (CR only)"]
- Concrete - Faulting by Section Alternative.rpt ["Concrete - Faulting by Section Alternative (JP/JR only)"]
- Concrete - Spalling by Section Alternative.rpt ["Concrete - Spalling by Section Alternative (JP/JR only)"]
For concrete sections, you will now be able to view the graphical reports of the concrete distresses calculated by HDM-4.
