Before you start to measure
check this out:-

Suppose we need to do an excavation to a
footing (F1) we need to know what?
Answer : Length. Width and
Depth
So what is the depth?
So we have two excavation depths:
a.The first is the oversite excavation depth
which is 200mm from ground level.
b.The sec...

excavation depth to footing?

Ground Levels
Engineers may just give you the depth
2.95m from ground level.
In most cases Engineer will
give the ground level and
footing levels

out?

We need to prevent the soil from falling
due to the nature of the soil
Planking

Excavation2014a-Lecture1

  1. 1. Lecture 1 - Excavation Objectives:- 1. To learn the various types of excavation works. 2. To relate the excavation works as per clauses in SMM2 3. To learn the methods of measurement as per clause D.10 – Depth classification Outcomes:- 1. Able to differentiate the different types of excavation bases on clauses D.12. 2. Able to determine the different units of measurement based on the clauses in D10, D11 and D12.
  2. 2. Excavation
  3. 3. Excavation Cut Remove Backfill
  4. 4. For a start we need to remove the top soil to an average depth of 200mm 100.00 m 35.00m
  5. 5. Before you start to measure check this out:-  1. Which clause?  Answer: Clause D.7 page 17  2. Unit of measurement ?  Answer: m2 Clause D.7  3. Others?  Answer: To state average depth.
  6. 6. Suppose we need to do an excavation to a footing (F1) we need to know what? Answer : Length. Width and Depth
  7. 7. So what is the depth?
  8. 8. So we have two excavation depths: a.The first is the oversite excavation depth which is 200mm from ground level. b.The second is the footing excavation depth which is 2.75m from reduced level.
  9. 9. How do we know the excavation depth to footing?  1st. The civil engineer will provide the information in two ways:  A. The depth from ground level or from reduced levels.  B. Based on the TBM ( Temporary Bench mark).
  10. 10. Ground Levels Engineers may just give you the depth 2.95m from ground level.
  11. 11. In most cases Engineer will give the ground level and footing levels
  12. 12. How is excavation actually carried out? A B 900m m 900mm F1 Excavate footing F1. Size 900 x 900x 1650mm
  13. 13. What is the volume of Excavation?a. A b. A + B + C
  14. 14. Depth of Excavation Footing A Footing B
  15. 15. We need to prevent the soil from falling due to the nature of the soil Planking and Strutting
  16. 16. SOMETIMES THE SOIL IS JUST TOO WEAK ,SO WE NEED TO PROVIDE SHEET PILING TO THE SIDES OF THE FOUNDATION. SHEET PILING
  17. 17. Depth classification (Clause D.10 page 17) 0.25m 1.00m 2.00m 4.00m
  18. 18. Reasons for the depth classification  1. Different depth will result in increased difficulty in excavation.  Increased depth will pose danger to workers so temporary support could be used.  It will result in using more complicated machinery.  It enables contractors to price accordingly
  19. 19. Levels Sea level:- 0.00m 5.00m The top of this hill is 5.00m above sea level.
  20. 20. Clause D12.2 Excavation in rock Normal soil Rock Bulldozer with ripper
  21. 21. How to get rid of rocks? Excavator Jack hammer Chemical Dynamite
  22. 22. How to measure rock? 1. To measure rock separately from normal earth. 2. To measure rock as an extra over item:- A. Total excavation ie. A+B. B To include rock ie B as a new item as extra over. A B
  23. 23. Exercise :- Find out the excavation work to area A and B 100.00m 80.00m 25.00m 18.00m Level:- 6.50m Level:- 7.50m A B Plan view Platform level:- 3.50m
