Earthwork mass diagrams are used to compute the cut and fill quantity required for road construction projects.

During road projects, the road is divided into stations. Typically, stations are given as 0+00, 1+00, 2+00, etc. 1+00 means ft from the reference point and. Check Pages 1 - 16 of EARTHWORK REPRESENTATION: GRADING SUMMARIES MASS HAUL DIAGRAMS in the flip PDF version.

For each of these, information on design features and usual specifications provisions are given to provide control personnel with a background to assist in implementing the recommended control techniques.

Using column 1 (station) and column 12 (mass ordinate, cumulative total) of a completed earthwork volume sheet, a mass diagram can be plotted as shown in Figure Estimating Earthwork Earthwork includes: 1. Excavation 2.

edge based on the experience of doing “by hand” or manual earthwork take-offs. Those who’ve calculated earthwork take-offs on paper will make better use of their software. So, even though computers are used more and more for earthwork project take-offs, having a background in the math involved in project calculations will improve your.

Earthwork is something that transportation projects seldom avoid. In order to establish a properly functional road, the terrain must often be adjusted. In many situations, geometric design will often involve minimizing the cost of earthwork movement. Earthwork is expressed in units of volumes (cubic meters in metric).

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. Steps used to create a mass diagram are presented in the Excel demonstration included with this page.

The most economical way to handle the distribution of earthwork volumes can be determined from the diagram. The rising curve on the mass diagram indicates. Earthworks operations include the excavation, transport, placement and compaction of fill materials to construct earth structures, and is a significant element of almost all civil engineering projects.

A good understanding of earthworks design and construction enables the delivery of successful projects and avoidance of costly problems.

Practical tips and techniques to help you develop earthwork estimates and better understand the variables that affect earthwork project costs.

Estimating software database includes over pages of current labor, material, and equipment costs for estimating most earthmoving and site work projects, including: dozing, excavating, scraping, loading, motor grading, ripping and soil compacting.

Page - NY,(pp. !^9). gives a comprehensive discussion of earthwork haul and of the mass diagram. The following extract, reproduced by permission, from pp. of the edition, indicates the basis of the author's discussion: "When material from excavation is hauled to be placed in embankment, it is customary to pay to the contractor a certain sum for every cubic yard hauled.

Book • Second Edition • Select 38 - Earthwork. Book chapter Full text access. 38 - Earthwork. Pages Cut and fill activities are represented using mass-haul diagrams. This chapter discusses mass-haul diagrams, hauling distance, haul volume, and balanced point. Estimating Excavation Revised, 2nd Edition () ($22 as PDF eBook download) This page book is written from the estimator's point of view.

An awful lot of its pages are devoted to documenting various time-consuming and tedious methods for calculating plan areas and earthwork volumes by hand (although it doesn't hurt to have an understanding of the calculations associated with the old.

Detailed estimating procedures will be covered. Various earthwork practice problems and conditions will be presented. A working set of drawings will be assigned and estimated. Material and labor costs will be presented, utilizing a cost data book and other references.

Class size is limited. Register early to guarantee your space. Construction from the ground up is an incredibly delicate and highly detailed process. While a large part of creating a structure relies on infrastructure design and aesthetic appeal, any seasoned engineer or architect will understand the importance of earthwork modeling.

For engineers, architects, and designers, the physical restrictions of the landscape can pose obstacles to overcome.

Get this from a library. Methods for the computation from diagrams of preliminary and final estimates of railway earthwork with diagrams giving quantities on inspection to the nearest cubic yard, for both regular and irregular sections, direct from ordinary field-notes. [A M Wellington].

Earthworks are engineering works created through the moving and/or processing of massive quantities of soil or unformed rock. Earthwork is done to reconfigure the topography of a site to achieve the design levels. Earthwork involves cutting and filling to achieve the required topography. Construction Methods & Management CIEG Mass Haul Diagrams • An Earthwork Profile is a plot of the net earthwork along a roadway or airstrip • Net cut values are plotted above the X-axis (positive Y value) • Net fill values are plotted below the X-axis (negative Y value) • Presents a picture of the earthwork requirements od-ri45 optimizing earthwork estimating for hiohway construction(u) air force inst of tech wrioht-prtterson afb oh f t uhlik aug 84 afit/ci/nrt.

One important aspect of Roadway design is determining the amount of Earthwork necessary on a project. The execution of earthwork comprises four fundamental. Watch this video to know more about estimate of earthwork for Roads. Department: Civil Engineering Year: 4. Together with directions for estimating the cost of earthwork.

(New York, J. Wiley & sons, ), also by John Cresson Trautwine (page images at HathiTrust) Trautwine, John C. (John Cresson), A method of calculating the cubic contents of excavations and embankments, by the aid of diagrams. Grading in civil engineering and landscape architectural construction is the work of ensuring a level base, or one with a specified slope, for a construction work such as a foundation, the base course for a road or a railway, or landscape and garden improvements, or surface drainage.

The earthworks created for such a purpose are often called the sub-grade or finished contouring (see diagram). An accurate estimate for earthwork volumes helps the contractor in bidding for the project, setting profit margins, budgeting, and managing costs.

By the careful comparison of current and expected conditions, our team accurately estimates earthwork volumes using the latest software to determine the exact cut and fill quantities to attain the. to identify the location of the lower left corn er of the diagram. Below is an example of a mass haul diagram.

Reading and Using a Mass Hual Diagram A mass haul diagram illustrates the accumulated al gebraic sum of the cubic yards of earthwork on a project. These diagrams are used as an aid in balancing earthwork, computing haul. Methods for the computation from diagrams of preliminary and final estimates of railway earthwork.

EBook is available from Jan 8th, and the paperback book. The mass diagram for an earthwork starts from station 8 + where the mass ordinate is + 60 m^3 and ends at station 8 + where the mass ordinate is – m^3. The length of economical haul, plotted horizontally intersects the summit mass diagram at a point where the mass ordinate is + m^3.

The length of economical haul is m. Mass Haul Diagram. This is a curve representing cumulative volume of earthwork at any point on curve, the manner which earth to be removed. It is necessary to plan movement of excavated soil of work site from cuts to fill so that haul distance be minimum to reduce the cost of earthwork.

Mining industry response to the book continues to be incredible. Thanks in large part to the efforts by John Chadwick of the Mining Journal,and many other members of the mining community, the Hard Rock Miner’s Handbook has been distributed to over countries worldwide.

Web hits and downloads continue as students and.Complete the earthwork calculation sheet below, and plot the resulting mass diagram. Divide Ccm by to convert to Bcm. Calculate the area under the mass diagram curve.
