Tutorial: Chaining Exercises 1.) The length of a line measured with a 30m long tape was 368.64m. The tape was standardized at a temperature of 20°C. If the temperature during measurement was 42°C, find the correct length of the line. The coefficient of thermal expansion of the tape material is 12x10 -6 /°C. (368.737m) 2.) A 30m long tape is held between supports under a tension of 120N. If the tape weights 10N, find the horizontal distance between the supports. (29.991m) 3.) A 30m long tape was standardized at 20°C and under a pull of 100N. The tape was used to measure a distance AB when the temperature was 45°C and the pull was 150N. The tape was supported at the ends only. Find the corrections per tape length if the cross section of the tape was 4mm 2 , the unit weight of the tape material is 0.0000786 N/mm

Five bays of a line AB were measured under a tension of 53N, and the following data were recorded. Length of span (m) Rise between ends of span (m) 29.149 0.027 29.944 0.196 29.474 0.126 29.514 0.055 29.690 0.336 Field temperature = 10°C The tape was standardized on the flat under a pull of 89N and at temperature 20°C. Tape details: Coefficient of thermal expansion = 0.000 011/°C Young’s modulus, E = 207 kN/mm 2 Density = 7700kg/m 3 Cross-sectional area = 6mm 2 How long is line AB? (147.355m) 5.) A 30m tape is used to measure a line along a gradient of 1:12. The tape was also kept 0.6m out of alignment. Find the horizontal distance for one tape length along the gradient....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
