Objectives 1. To be able to lay a simple curve by using the tape alone. Instruments Range Poles - Ranging poles are used to mark areas and to set out straight lines on the field which consists of a straight rod painted in bands of alternate red and white each one foot wide. They are also used to mark points which must be seen from a distance. Ranging poles are straight round stalks, 3 to 4 cm thick and about 2 m long. They are made of wood or metal. Chalk - A chalk is a soft, white, porous sedimentary carbonate rock, a form of limestone composed of the mineral calcite. 50 meter tape - A fifty meter long tape that are used to measure distances on the field. This is used in surveying for measuring horizontal, vertical or slope distances. PROCEDURES 1. The professor gives the following data:
I = _______ R = _______ Station PC (preferably not on full station):_________ Adopt Full chord length of ______ m 2. The professor assigns the location of PC in the field, together with the direction of the backward tangent. (Note: Be very careful in assigning the location of station PC and direction of the backward tangent so that the curve will not be obstructed by any large permanent structure.) 3. The students: a. Compute the central incremental angle of the simple curve assigned, Lc and Sta PT. b. Compute the incremental tangent offset distances x and y of each intermediate stations before going to the field. c. Compute the first offset distances x and y using the formula: The tangent offset distance x 1 must be solved using: x 1 =c 1 * cos(d 1 /2) The tangent offset distance y 1 must be solved using:y 1 =c 2 * sin(d 1 /2) d. Compute the second offset distances x and y using the formula: The tangent offset distance x 2 must be solved using: x 2 = c*cos(d 1 +D/2) The tangent offset distance y 2 must be solved using:y 2 = c*sin(d 1 +D/2) e.

### 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.
