This course introduces students to elementary field and office surveying theory and practice especially in relation to engineering surveying works. It covers topics including areas and volumes, horizontal circular and transition curves and vertical curves, long sections and cross sections, and traverse calculation.
- Semester 1 - 2020
This course replaces the following course(s): SURV1120. Students who have successfully completed SURV1120 are not eligible to enrol in SURV2210.
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Apply the fundamental concepts used for the surveying of sites for road and/or rail curves.
2. Execute the calculations to permit the setting out of circular and transition horizontal and parabolic vertical road or rail curves.
3. Produce surveys and drawings for long sections and cross sections which allow for the calculation of areas and volumes for earthworks for road and rail curves.
4. Implement the concepts and practicalities of traversing, especially for control relating to the above matters.
• Distance Measurement
• Use of Total Station
• Traversing and Calculations
• Missing Data in Traverses
• Areas and Volumes
• Long Sections and Cross Sections
• Detail Surveys/Route Surveys
• Circular Curves
• Transition Curves
• Vertical Curves
This course replaces SURV1120. If you have successfully completed SURV1120 you cannot enrol in this course.
