LA 211 Engineering Notes Taken April 19 th Final Tuesday 12:00-2:00 – cumulative (like midterm) 1. Step 1: Draw a Grid Overlay on Your Site 2. Step 2: Draw a No Cut/No Fill Perimeter Around Your Site 3. Step 3: Calculate the Existing Elevations at Each Corner of the Grid 4. Step 4: Calculate the Proposed Elevations at Each Corner of the Grid 5. Step 5: Calculate the CUT/FILL Depths for Each Corner of the Grid 6. Step 6: Calculate the Average CUT/FILL Depth for Each Grid Cell 7. Step 7: Calculate the Cut/FILL Amounts for the Entire Site 8. Step 8: Calculate the Total Amount of CUT/FILL to be Removed or Brought Onto the Site Estimate existing and proposed elevations Existing – proposed = cut/fill depth Volume = L x W x Depth Divide by 27 to get cubic yards Positive = cut; negative = fill st April 21 notes th Need to have everything turned in by the end of next week (Friday the 29 ) Bench Mark (BM)- a permanent point of known elevation Height of Instrument (HI) – the height of the sight line in the level you are using from which all other elevations can be determined Turning Point (TP) – One of a number of locations that you might use to set up your level in order to take measurements Backsight (BS) – a reading taken with a level instrument on a point of known elevation to establish HI Foresight (FS) – a reading taken with a level instrument on a new point of unknown elevation in order to establish the elevation of the new point relative to the current HI Soil Cut and Fill Calculation Methods: 1. Cross Sectional or Average End Area: used for long, linear sites (roads, pathways, utility trenches) 2. Contour Area: used for large, uncomplicated areas. Good for calculating water volumes for ponds and lakes 3. Borrow Pit or Grid: used for an irregularly shaped site and non-linear layout
