Route Surveying
Credits: 4
Department: EGR Engineering Science
Subject: Engineering Science
This course covers the principal topics of highway surveying including profiles, horizontal and vertical curves, mass diagrams and street layout. Emphasis is on the study of the geometry and field stake-out techniques of circular curves, spiral curves, compound curves, reverse curves, equal-tangent vertical curves, and unequal-tangent vertical curves, horizontal and vertical alignment design, earthwork quantities and mass diagrams. The student will perform both field and lab work to gather information about a general route to select one or more tentative general routes of a roadway and mark the final location.
