Swept Path Analysis Design

Swept Path Analysis allows us to predict the path of steered vehicles in a variation of scenarios. This can often be an essential tool for the design of temporary traffic management; especially when large and abnormal vehicles may be in close proximity to the works.

It allows us to calculate the movement and path of a vehicle and its components whilst undertaking a manoeuvre within a live CAD drawing. We use specialist software to illustrate vehicular movements, along with other relevant information such as design speed and severity of steering.

We use Swept Path Analysis as a Temporary Traffic Management design aid when our clients are undertaking works around junctions and roundabouts, or in fact any other works where limited space could be a potential issue. This ensures the maximum working space is created whilst allowing safe vehicular movements through site and prevents risks to both site operatives and/or the general public. The ability to design vehicular movements can also be utilised in many other circumstances, such as new road layout design, car parks, warehouses and many more.

Swept Path Analysis is the calculation and analysis of the movement and path of different parts of a vehicle when the vehicle is undertaking a turning maneuver. At a basic level this includes calculating the path taken by each wheel during the turn and also calculating the space needed by the vehicle body during the turn. Initially this form of calculation was carried out by hand, but in recent years has been computerised.
