## Area is often required in the context of design,

e.g., we might need the surface area of a lake,
the area of a tract of land or of a cross-
Volumes are often calculated by integrating
the area at regular intervals e.g., along a road
centerline, or by using regularly spaced
contours.

## We need to know the volume of materials in

virtually all facets of civil engineering
especially in design and construction e.g.,
earthwork computations, amount of cut or fill,
amount of concrete, and etc.
There are two cases for calculating the areas:
Areas of Straight Boundary
Area of Irregular Boundary

## The determination of areas depend upon the

topography of the terrain and the accuracy
required.
The area of land portion, may be determined
by the following methods:
from the field notes, and
from the plotted plan or map

## Computation of Areas from Field Notes

Whenever the area of a plot of land is to be
determined directly from the field notes, it should be
ensured that the survey lines include the whole area
and the land is divided into geometrical figures such
as:-
Triangles,
Squares,
Rectangles and etc.

## It is important to note that Simpsons Rule requires an

even number of divisions of the area, i.e. the total
number of ordinates must be odd.

INTRODUCTION
www.uthm.edu.my

## In civil engineering calculation of volumes of

earthwork is required.
There are several methods available for the
determination of the volume of three dimensional
figures and earthworks.
Generally the methods are based on using field
survey techniques to acquire data that represents
the shape of the land so that volume calculations can
proceed.
The methods are as follow:

Cross-Sections
A cross-section of the natural surface indicates the
existing ground profile normal to a fixed direction at
a selection point.
The fixed direction is usually of significance such as
the center line of a road.
Example of cross sections are described as follow:

Cross-Sections
For a cut or fill on horizontal ground

## Area = h(2b + nh)

where h is the average cutting depth, n is the side slope
and b is the formation width

Cross-Sections
For a cut and fill on sloping ground

## Assuming a cut such as the Fig.

the cross-sectional area is found
firstly by calculating WL & WG.

WL = S(b + nh)/(S + n)
WG = S(b + nh)/(S-n)

## Thus Area = (h + b/n)(WL + WG) - b2/n

1: S & 1: n

For cut and fill

## W1 = g (b/2 + hs) / (g-s)

W2 = g (b/2 - hs) / (g-s)

Vol of filling=With

## This method is particularly useful for large, open

excavations such as tank, borrow pits etc.
The area is divided into a grid, and levels obtained at
the intersection points.
The spacing of the grid depends on the terrain,
accuracy required, and resources available.
