Not sure what you want since you were not clear.  We usually do our parking garage ramps using floors.  I would do a U in three sections. 

 

The bottom of the U does not usually slope on ramps like this because the travel distance is not the same on each side.   Sort of why code people don't like winders on stair landings.  The inside slope is too steep.

You say constant rise but that is the problem with a U.  There can not be any constant rise.  The bottom of the U has to twist so you cant do this with flat slabs, normal ramps or sweeps. Good Luck
