Then the median areas can be levelled to grade to better precision. The grid size may vary from 5 m x 5 m to 25 m x 25 m depending upon the nature of the terrain, the contour interval required and the scale of the map desired.
The next step is to run a linear regression through the average row and column elevations using Equations and Let the back sight reading on the bench mark be 1. Where manually controlled equipment is used, many operators establish a bench mark grid over the field by cutting and filling strips on both sides of a stake to the desired grade.
This adjustment is determined by: The first of the practical problems is the arrangements between the irrigator and the contractor. Staff readings are taken along the base line and the cross sections. Note that the origin is 10 m to the right and 10 m above the stake at grid position [i, A].
Thus, contouring depends upon the instruments used to determine the horizontal as well as vertical position of points. First determination of cuts and fills for the example problem In order for the earthwork to balance in the field after levelling, the volume of cuts should exceed the fills by 10 to 30 percent.
This point acts as a point of known elevation, for shifting the position of the instrument to another position, from where the work proceeds in the similar manner till the entire area is contoured. Indirect method of contouring: Subsequently the RLs of the respective points are noted on the map, after which the required contour line is drawn by interpolation This method is suitable for route survey, when cross sections are taken transverse to the longitudinal section.
In the direct method, the contour to be plotted is actually traced on the ground. Then the base line and cross sections are plotted to a suitable scale. It requires planimetric position of the points and drawing of contours from elevations of the plotted points. Equation is usually less formal than required for contracting purposes.
Therefore, locating contours of higher value, the instrument has to be shifted to some other suitable position. In the following example the standard grid spacing is 20 m by 20 m and begins one-half spacing from the upper left corner of the field represented by the grid point [i, A] in Figure The problem that is developed utilizes a different approach to that suggested herein so it will be partially repeated for purposes of both illustration and comparison.
The loose soils may settle differently depending upon equipment travel or depths of irrigation water applied.
Generally, a contractor must be retained to move the earth, after which the field topography is checked and if necessary the contractor refines his job with additional work.
One point, the lower right grid represents an area of m2. Using the standard area per point as m2, the weighing coefficients, q ij, are shown in Figure For example, the line of intersection of the water surface of a still lake or pond with the surrounding ground represents a contour line.
The final calculations involving the revised field plane involve the calculation of the C value in Eq. The readings are entered in the level book the base line and the cross sections should also be mentioned.
Establish a forward station on a firm ground and take fore sight on it. This value is also shown in Figure 65 as 1. One method of reducing cut volumes, and therefore the cost, is to subdivide the field into terraces or benches. Squares or Grid method Cross section method Square or grid method: This method is slow and tedious and thus used for large scale maps, small contour interval and at high degree of precision.
Such a strategy prevents the over-use of travel lanes and minimizes the haul and return distances. Points which happen to fall on a desired contour are only surveyed, plotted and finally joined to obtain the particular contour.The leveling grid is the elevation basis for topographic surveying, and its points are also used to study vertical movements of the earth’s crust, where determination of leveling elevations is repeated.

This is the document I found online with new curriculum writing assessments - Exceeding or mastery etc for each year group/5(31). Mar 31, · Does anyone know of any good levelling grids to level a piece of writing which is a level 6.
We have some year 6 children who are writing at a higher standard than level 5 and currently use the Suffolk levelling grid for levelling writing, however these do not go up to level 6 and I'm trying to find out if there is something similar that we.
The levelling operation, however, can be the most intensively disruptive cultural practice applied to the field and several factors should be considered before implementing a land levelling project. Major topographical changes will nearly always reduce crop production in the cut areas until fertility can be replaced.
