a. The following natural surface levels were taken along the proposed
centre line of a road:
Chainage/meterage RL
An equal tangent parabolic vertical summit curve is to be placed
etween two successive design formation grades of +3.0% and -2.0%
which meet at a point 700m at a reduced level of 33.2 m. The length
of the curve is 200 m. Compute and tabulate:
i. the calculated RL’s of the chainages/meterage along
the tangents; XXXXXXXXXX5 marks)
ii. the reduced levels of the design surface; (10 marks)
iii. the cut(-ve) or fill(+ve) required at each peg at the
centre line. XXXXXXXXXX5 marks)
. The centre-line of two railway culverts is required to be set-out from
the start of a transition curve, curving to the right. Calculate the
deflection angle and chord from the start of the transition curve using
the rigorous ideal transition curve formulae, using the following data:
Intersection angle = 20o19'50"
Radius = 350m
Transition length = 50 m
Start point (TS) of transitioned curve = 565 m
(i) Chainage/meterage of culvert one = 610 m
(ii) Chainage/meterage of culvert two = 680 m
(i 10 marks, ii 20 marks)
c. A surveyor when placing a fill situation catch point mark for batter
marking, measures the modelled catch point by the following data and
given information:
Height of collimation of level = 87.0 m
Design centre-line level = 86.15 m
SVY XXXXXXXXXXIntroductory book Page 5
Distance from the design centre-line to edge of shoulder = 5.0 m
Pavement crossfall from the design centre-line = -3%
Shoulder batter (-ve for fill situation) = -1: 0.5 (horizontal to
vertical) or -2: 1
Natural surface staff reading for catch point = 2.43m, taken at the
8m modelled offset from the centre-line as read off the
construction tables.
Calculate if the catch point is in the co
ect modelled position, and if
not, what would be a suggested shift, assuming the ground is level,
apply a check to your solution. XXXXXXXXXX20 marks)

Question 3 (70 marks)
a. Robert from River Adventures runs a white-water rafting company and
tells you that the Clearwater River varies in height over the season by
about 5 metres and this affects the raft speed. Based on the
information below. XXXXXXXXXX30 marks)
Roughness coefficient = 0.025
Hydraulic gradient = 0.016m/m
Acceleration due to gravity = 9.8m/s2
Calculate the (i) hydraulic radius and velocity of flow by Manning’s
Formula and (ii) rate of flow per hour for both the high water and
low water marks. (i 5 marks, ii 10 marks, for each water mark)

. The top of a pile requires final placement at E 100.8, N 200.6 and RL
50m (say for
idge/wharf/jetty construction). The pile is angled away
from the centre-line along the line of the piles, into the sub-surface at
a +10 angle off normal. The
idge centre-line has a bearing of 20
and the required line of piles to the left of the centre-line has a bearing
of 290. A measurement to the cu
ent position of the pile top has
een reduced to be at E 101.5, N 200.1 and RL 55.9m. Calculate the
equired movement of the pile top, so as to be positioned to
commence driving at RL 55.9m, along the line of skew. See plan and
elevation views below. XXXXXXXXXX30 marks)
c. A flight of levels is run from a Bench Mark of R.L. as per the table
elow and the following readings obtained: (Booked down the page)



At CP4 position of the level, six height pegs at 20 metre intervals
(100m in total) are to be set out at a falling grade of 1 in 420. The
first peg (i.e. 00) has a design level of 86.20m.
Calculate the grade levels and staff readings required for the top of
each peg using the Height of collimation booking method and enter
the results in level book form.

Answer: 1
Given Data
Starting point tangent (TS) = 26480 m
Angle = = 5.275
Distance = 99.83 m
Horizontal circular curve, R = 800 m
Tangent length (T) =
Curve length (l) =
(L) =
E =
Long tangent distance
Chainage of
Chainage of Secant = 23.69 + 147.30
= 170.99
Chainage of ST = 170.99 + 147.30
= 318.29
Answer b. 1
Answer b. 2
Assuming the instrument has curvature and refraction applied and vertical index e
or co
ection turned on, the HI (coll.) = 101.1m
RL440 = 101.1- 0.983 -1.525 = 98.592
RL498 = 101.1-0.086-1.525 = 99.489
Layer thickness 440 = 101.1-98.592 = 2.508
Layer thickness 498 = 101.1-99.489 = 1.611
Answer c.
Depth = 4m
Length = 35 m
W = 19 m
Constraints, dam tank can hold volume greater than 4000
The storage capacity obtains as following;
V = 19 x 35 x 4 = 2660
From the mathematical fundamental equations and applied trail & e
or method,
Increasing total length by 4 m, the following solution obtained and increasing width by 7 m
V = 39 x 26 x 4 = 4056
Answer: 2
Design of sewage system and important criteria needs to consideration:
As provides in above sewage design, the following are important criteria needs to consider while designing sewage system.
a. Initially, find out the contour survey of the specific area needs to serve sewage and drainage design. This includes street layout, specific location allotments and buildings. It is also needs to consider the altitude with respect to sea level, flood condition, level and specific sites for the pumping stations.
. By considering trials series, it is require to elect the location of the outlet which can able to drain out from the specific area. The drainage plan is most economical and suitable for the truck. In this case, the
anch lines and laterals falling by considering general te
ain which are added to the system. The
anch lines are laterals falling with the general te
ain which is essential to add to the system. The
anch lines are generally place along the rear common boundaries between the allotments or in the street areas. In this case, the economical layout can reduce the total cost...
