**Introduction Tacheometry – Greek word means quick measure**

Measuring horizontal and vertical distance of a points on the earth surface relatively to one another are determined without using a chain or tape or a separate levelling instrument. Preparation of contoured maps or plans with higher accuracy and also, it provides a check on distances measured with the tape. Need of Tacheometry : steep and broken ground, deep revines, stretches of water or swamp etc., where chaining is difficult or impossible Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

**Measuring horizontal distances and differences in elevations. **

Uses of Tacheometry Measuring horizontal distances and differences in elevations. Preparation of topographic maps which require both elevations and horizontal distances Survey work in difficult terrain where direct methods are inconvenient Detail filling Reconnaissance surveys for highways, railways, etc. Checking of already measured distances Hydrographic surveys Establishing secondary control Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

**Instrument Transit theodolite fitted with a stadia diaphragm**

In addition to it, convex lens (anallatic lens)is provided between the eye-piece and the object glass at a fixed distance. Various pattern of stadia diaphragm Levelling Staff Stadia Rod Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

**Instrument Transit theodolite fitted with a stadia diaphragm**

The stadia diaphragm essentially consists of one stadia hair above and the other an equal distance below the horizontal cross-hair, the stadia hairs being mounted in the ring and on the same vertical plane as the horizontal and vertical cross-hairs. (1) The simple external-focusing telescope (2) The external-focusing anallactic telescope (Possor`s telescope) (3) The internal-focusing telescope. Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

7
Tangential System Diaphragm of the tacheometer is not provided with stadia hair Single Horizontal Hair is used Staff consist of two vanes at known distances Two points are required to measure staff intercept Angles, elevations or depressions are measured Tangents are used to measure horizontal distances and elevations (not generally used) Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

8
**Stadia System Principle: Tacheometric angle is constant**

Staff intercept varies with distance between staff and instruments, which forms base Diaphragm of tacheometer is provided with two stadia hair (upper and lower) Telescope is directed towards the staff held at a point whose distance from instruments is to be found Difference in these readings gives staff intercept Horizontal distance is obtained by multiplying staff intercept by multiplying constant Two Methods 1.Fixed hair 2.Movable Hair Method Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

9
Subtense Method Reverse of stadia method 2. Staff intercept forms fixed base 3. Tacheometric angle according with staff position Fixed Base : fixed distance between two tangents or vanes Interval between the stadia wires is changed till lines of sight coincide with tangents and the subtended angle is noted Base may be vertical or Horizontal Base Vertical : Movable Hair method or Vertical base subtense method Vertical angle is measured with the help of special diaphragm – high accuracy Base Horizontal : Horizontal base subtense method Horizontal angle is measured by method of repetition using Transient theodolite example: Subtense bar method Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

**Tacheometer must essentially incorporate the following features:**

The multiplying constant should have a nominal value of 100 and the error contained in this value should not exceed 1 in 1000. The axial horizontal line should be exactly midway between the other two lines. The telescope should be truly anallactic. The telescope should be powerful having a magnification of 20 to 30 diameters. The aperture of the objective should be 35 to 45 mm in diameter to have a sufficiently bright image. For small distances (say upto 100 meters), ordinary levelling staff may be used. For greater distances a stadia rod may be used. A stadia rod is usually of one piece, having 3 – 5 meters length. A stadia rod graduated in 5 mm (i.e m) for smaller distances and while for longer distances, the rod may be graduated in 1 cm (i.e m). Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

15
**A, C, and B = the points cut by the three**

Horizontal Sight A, C, and B = the points cut by the three O is the optical centre of the objective of an external focusing telescope A, B and C = the points cut by the three lines of sight corresponding to three wires a, b and c = bottom, top and hairs of the diaphragm ab = i = interval b/w the stadia hairs (stadia interval) AB = s = staff intercept; f = focal length of the objective Sivapriya Vijayasimhan

16
**D = s + (f + d) = k . s + C 1 1 1 f f1 f2 f1 f2 s i f1 = f + f f i**

f1 = horizontal distance of the staff from the optical centre of the objective f2 = horizontal distance of the cross-wires from O. d = distance of the vertical axis of the instrument from O. D = horizontal distance of the staff from the vertical axis of the instruments. M = centre of the instrument, corresponding to the vertical axis. Since the rays BOb and AOa pass through the optical centre, they are straight so that AOB and aOb are similar. Hence, f s f i = Again, since f1 and f2 are conjugate focal distances, we have from lens formula, f f f2 + = f1 f2 Multiplying throughout by ff1, we get f1 = f + f f s f i = Substituting the values of in the above, we get s i f1 = f + f Horizontal distance between the axis and the staff is D = f1 + d D = s + (f + d) = k . s + C f i

17
**Equation is known as the distance equation**

Equation is known as the distance equation. In order to get the horizontal distance, therefore, the staff intercept s is to be found by subtracting the staff readings corresponding to the top and bottom stadia hairs. Determination of constant K and C 1st method: In this method, the additive constant C = (f + d) is measured from the instrument while the multiplying constant k is computed from field observations: Focus the instrument to a distant object and measure along the telescope the distance between the objective and cross-hairs, The distance d between the instrument axis and the objective is variable in the case of external focusing telescope, being greater for short sights and smaller for long sights. It should, therefore be measured for average sight. Thus, the additive constant (f + d) is known. f f f2 + =

18
3. To calculate the multiplying constant k, measure a known distance D1 and take the intercept s1 on the staff kept at that point, the line of sight being horizontal. Using the equation, D1 = ks1 + C or k = For average value, staff intercepts, s2, s3 etc., can be measured corresponding to distance D2, D3 etc., and mean value can be calculated. Note: In case of some external focusing instruments, the eye-piece-diaphragm unit moves during focusing. For such instruments d is constant and does not vary while focusing. D1 – C s 2nd method: In this method, both the constants are determined by field observations as under: Measure a line, about 200m long, on fairly level ground and drive pegs at some interval, say 50 meters. Keep the staff on the pegs and observe the corresponding staff intercepts with horizontal sight. Knowing the values of D and s for different points, a number of simultaneous equations can be formed by substituting the values of D and s in equation D = k.s + C. The simultaneous solution of successive pairs will give the values of k and C, and the average of these can be found.

19
For example, if s1 is the staff intercept corresponding to distance D1 and s2 corresponding to D2 we have, D1 = k.s1 + C (i) and D2 = k. s2 + C (ii) Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get k = D2 – D1 s2 – s1 (1) Substituting the values of k in (i), we get C = D s1 = D1s2 – D2s1 (2) Thus equation (1) and (2) give the values of k and C.

**FIXED HAIR METHOD OF STADIA SYSTEM**

Distance between the stadia hair is fixed Distance between the station and staff = staff intercept x stadia constants Methods to find Stadia Constants 1.
