    waste or stockpile sites because the information was gathered by field book notes (without electronic data gathering tools). The “Average End Area Method from Cross Sections” is also used when a site needs to be formally document by cross sections. Occasionally both methods of calculating earthwork are used for Size: 1MB. An engineer can accomplish the necessary earthwork computations by using the following methods: average-end-area, prismoidal formula, average-depth-of-cut-or-fill, grid, or contour. Average-End.

    In military engineering, earthworks are, more specifically, types of fortifications constructed from soil. Although soil is not very strong, it is cheap enough that huge quantities can be used, generating formidable structures. Examples of older earthwork fortifications include moats, sod walls, motte-and-bailey castles, and hill examples include trenches and berms.   Earthwork Volume Calculation Methods. 1.

AREA COMPUTATION The surveyor can determnecross-section areas for construction earthwork volumes by approximate results, while the other Methods for earthwork computations book the-squares methods are simple and given one of the following methods: the counting give results as accurate as the cross-section squares method, the geometric method field data will permit.

Copyright Joshua A. Tiner, 11 of 2. A Traditional “Hand Method” of Surface Cut-Fill Analysis The “hand method” that will be presented in this course can be referred to as a grid method of surface cut-fill analysis. Proceed with the computation as follows: Since the result (1, square feet) represents the double area, the area of the cross section is one half of that amount, or square feet.

By similar method, the area of the cross section at station (fig. ) is square feet. Earth fill and excavation yardage must be entered and calculated on separate spreadsheets. This spreadsheet can only calculate one type of earthwork at a time.

For more information on Earthwork Computations using the Any Level Method see: South Dakota Engineering Technical Note –. Earthwork Calculation is done with various methods in Infrastructure Industry. Volume calculation based on Section method is most Popular method. + covers each step of the excavation and grading process, from how to read and understand grade stakes, through paving, laying pipe and cutting drainage channels.

Since the mid s, when my first grading and excavation book was published, there have been many changes in construction methods. EARTHWORK CONSTRUCTION AND LAYOUT TOPIC I 2 Earthwork Construction and Layout Introduction The earthwork section is the typical starting point anyone starting to prepare for the Construction portion of the Civil PE Exam.

The Earthwork section is a critical to know and there will be at least 3 questions on the exam directly covering these Size: KB. But for determining the areas of irregular polygons, different methods are used. Earthwork computation is involved in the excavation of channels, digging of trenches for laying underground pipelines, formation of bunds, earthen embankments, digging farm ponds, land levelling and smoothening.

Excavation and embankment (cut and fill) Excavation = the removal of soil or rock from its natural location. Embankment = the placement and compaction of layers of earth or rock to form a roadbed of the planned shape, density, and profile grade.

Other sections will require File Size: KB. 6 Measurement and Earthwork Calculations Contract Quality Payment The computation of the volume from the planned areas of one balance is required to be checked. In general, this the average end area method.

Excavation may also be measured on a lump sum basis. When this occurs. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text. Accurate calculation of cut and fill volume has an essential importance in many fields. This article shows a new method, which has no approximation, based on Digital Terrain Models.

Dredge Measurement and Payment Volume Computations General Scope A primary use of hydrographic surveys supporting river and harbor construction is to determine the quantity of material that is excavated or placed.

In this post, we are going to discuss various methods of volume calculation that can be adopted to find earthwork quantities. For various civil engineering projects like road work, irrigation canal project, tank survey, earthmoving, etc., the calculation method used is different.
