**Geology and Surveying 70380 (Part B - Surveying) Volumes and DTMs**

2
**Objectives In this lecture we will look at:**

General volume calculations from field information Trapezoidal Rule for volumes Simpson’s Rule for volumes Forming DTMs

3
Volume of a Regular Box V = a × b × c c a b

4
Volume of a Pyramid h b a

5
**Volume of a Frustum A1 h A2 A1 and A2 are parallel**

Perpendicular height between A1 and A2 h A2 A1 and A2 are parallel

6
Volume of a Wedge h = Vertical Height a b d h If d=a

7
Volume of a Prismoid A Prismoid is a solid having for its ends any two parallel plane figures, and having plane sides. l A2 A1

8
**Trapezoidal Rule for Volumes**

Prismoidal Formula End Area Formula Combine several prismoid formulae. Where n is the last cross-section Convenient since any number of prismoids or cross sections can be used

9
**Simpson’s Rule for Volume**

Follow similar arguments to Trapezoidal Formula to extend Simpson’s Rule for areas and develop Simpson’s Rule for volumes Odd number of cross sections at equal distance apart If even number, calculate last prismoid independently

10
Earthworks Volume Areas and volumes are included on Cross Sections and Longitudinal Sections Generally economy suggests a “balance” of cut and fill after topsoil stripping Mass Haul is also a major consideration to contractors Study example on page 21.17

14
**Grid Leveling General Formula Appearing once = corners of grid**

Appearing twice = sides of grid Appearing three times = only irregular shapes Appearing four times = internal points

15
Contours Contouring is the geographic representation of land forms (shape of land surface) A contour is a line of constant elevation Therefore the vertical interval between contours (or contour interval - CI) is constant Therefore the distance between contours indicates the steepness of grade

16
Example of Contours

17
**Levels for Contours and DTM**

Levels can be taken by several means including: Grid Leveling (pre-marked grid) Spot Leveling (Chainage and offset) Spot Leveling (H angle and distance) Spot Leveling (GPS) Much better handled by a fully automated surveying sustem – Total Station and data collector or RTK GPS

18
**Earthworks Quantities from Contours**

19
**Digital Terrain Models**

DTM = Digital Terrain Model DEM = Digital Elevation Model Used by CADD packages

20
**Contouring Models Usually a points modeler (with strings)**

Surface represented by E, N and RL of a number of grid or random points Surface must be defined (usually be triangles – triangular plates) This assumes a smooth surface between points – Caution! Triangles are then contoured

21

28
**String Lines Model represented by points and string lines**

Strings used to join common points Strings also used to define changes of grade (COGs) These COGs are also known as “Breaklines” Every string becomes the side of a triangle if that string is a breakline.

29
**Without Breakline Strings**

100.0 101.0 102.0 101 m Contour

30
**With Breakline Strings**

101.0 101.0 101.0 Breakline 102.0 102.0 102.0 101 m Contour 100.0 100.0 100.0

31
Breaklines

32
**DTMs for Volume Calculation**

Volumes from prisms Volumes from cross-sections Volumes from triangles Make decision on most accurate for each application – then check by alternate method Volumes can be from a datum surface, or between two surfaces (eg Design surface – Natural Surface)

33
**Summary In this lecture we investigated:**

General volume calculations from field information Trapezoidal Rule for volumes Simpson’s Rule for volumes Forming DTMs Significance of Breaklines CADD applications and volume calcs
