##### Surveying

SURVEYING, **Classification of survey based on the curvature of the earth surface- **Plane Survey, Geodetic Survey. **Classification of survey based on Place**– Land Survey (Topographical Survey, Cadastral Survey, City Survey), Hydrographical Survey, Astronomical Survey. **Classification of survey based on Purpose- **Engineering Survey, Military Survey, Archaeological Survey, Mine Survey, *Geological Survey*. **Classification of survey based on Instrument- **Chain Survey, Compass Survey, Levelling, Plane table Surveying, Theodolite Survey, Tacheometric Survey, Photogrammetric Survey, EDM (Electronic Distance Measurement) Survey. **Principal of surveying**– Working From Whole To Part, Location of a Point by With Respect to Reference Point. **Instruments Used for Various Types of Measurement.**

Plan & Map, *SCALE*, Representation of Scale- Engineer’s Scale, Representation Fraction (RF), Graphical Scale. *Shrinkage Factor or Shrinkage Ratio, *Error Due to Shrinkage of Map, *Error Due to Wrong Measuring Scale, ***Type of Scales- **Plane Scale, Diagonal Scale, Vernier Scale (Direct Vernier, Retrograde Vernier, Extended Vernier, Double Vernier).

Linear Measurements, *Procedure in Chain Surveying,***Basic Definition of Chain Surveying- **Main Station, Tie Station, Main Survey Line, Tie Line/ Subsidiary Line, Base Line, Check Line/ Proof Line, Offset, Chainage, Well Conditioned Triangle. **Linear Measurement with Chain- **On Smooth Level Ground, On Sloping Ground. **Errors & Correction in Chaining/ Taping**, Type of Error in Chaining, **Correction in Chaining & Taping Are Following Type- **Correction For Standardisation, Correction for Slope (Cg), Correction for Pull (Tension), Correction for Temperature (Ct), Correction for Sag (Csag), Reduction of length to mean sea level (MSL), **Field Work in Chain Surveying- **Reconnaissance, Marking of Stations, Running Survey Lines, Taking Offsets. **Limiting Length of Offsets-** Error only in laying offset, Error in laying direction and liner measurement.

Equipment Used In Chain Surveying, **Surveying Chain, **Types of Chain- Revenue chain, Gunter’s chain, Engineer’s chain, Metric chain, Suitability of Chain, Unsuitability of Chain, Units of Measurement, **Tapes-**Cloth or Linen Tape, Metallic Tape, Steel Tape, Invar Tape, **Pegs, ****Arrows, Ranging rods, ***Offset rods*, **Plumb bob, ***Clinometer*, **Cross-staff, ***Optical Square*, **Prism Square**, *Chain Survey Instruments, ***Distance Measuring Device**, *Instruments Used for Various Types of Measurement*

**Compass Surveying,** Basic difference between chain and compass surveying, **Classification of Traverse- **Closed Traverse, Open Traverse. **Compass traverse, ****Meridian**– True Meridian, Magnetic meridian, Grid Meridian, Arbitrary Meridian.** Bearing,** **Types of bearing- **True Bearing, Magnetic Bearing, Grid Bearing, Arbitrary Bearing. **Designation of Bearing or Representation of Bearing- **Whole Circle Bearing System, Quadrantal Bearing System.

**Fore Bearing And Back Bearing,** Relationship Between Fore Bearing And Back Bearing, **Include Angle,** Magnetic Declination**, ****Type of Declination- **Eastern Declination, Western Declination. **Variation of Magnetic Declination- **Secular Variation, Diurnal Variation, Annual Variation, Irregular Variation. **Adjustments Of Angles**, Angle of Dip, **Local Attraction **

**Compass, Temporary & Permanent Adjustments Of Compass– **Temporary adjustments, Permanent Adjustments. **Compass are generally two types-**** Surveyor Compass, **Temporary adjustments of a Surveyor’s Compass- Centring- Levelling. Permanent Adjustment of Surveyor’s compass, **Prismatic Compass, **Temporary Adjustments of a Prismatic Compass- Centring, Levelling, Focussing, Permanent adjustment of prismatic compass, **Difference Between Prismatic Compass and Surveyor Compass**

**Traverse Survey**, Types of Traverse- Closed Traverse, Open Traverse. **Method of Traversing**– Linear Measurement, Angular Measurements: Loose Needle Method, Fast Needle Method, Method of Included Angle, Method of Direct Angles, Method of Deflection Angles. **Balancing the Angle of Traverse- **Average Correction Method. **Latitude And Departure- **Latitude (L), Departure (D). **Checks in a Closed Traverse- **Loop Traverse, Link Traverse. **Closing Error**, Relative Error of Closure or Relative Precision, **Method to Correct Clothing Error- **Bowditch’s Rule, Transit Rule.

**Levelling**, Important Terminologies In Levelling, **Elevation & Altitude**, Reduced Level, **Mean Sea Level, **Bench Marks(B.M)– G.T.S Bench Marks, Permanent Bench Marks, Temporary Bench Marks, Arbitrary Bench Marks. **Measurement in Leveling Work- **Horizontal Line, Vertical Line, Level Line, Back Sight Reading, Fore Sight Reading, Intermediate Sight Reading. **Method to Find Reduced Level- **Height of Instrument, Rise and Fall Method. **Inverted Staff**, **Correction Required in Levelling Work- **Correction due to Earth Curvature (Cc), Correction due to Refraction (CR), Combined Correction due to Both (C). **Distance of Visible Horizon- **When height of any one point is considered, When height of both points are considered. **Reciprocal Leveling** – When the instrument near A, When the instrument near B, **Collimation error**– When Area is Large, When Area is small, Angular / Inclination Error, **Sensitivity of Bubble Tube** , The sensitivity of level tube increases with?.

**Introduction, Measurement of Area: ****Computation of Area of Geometrical Figures-** Rectangle, Square, Triangle, Circle, Parallelogram, Trapezoid, Trapezium, Oblique Triangle, Area of a Segment, Regular Polygon. **Computation of Area of Irregular Shape**– Mid Ordinate Rule, Average Offset Rule, Trapezoidal Rule, Simpson’s One Third Rule. ** **** Measurement Of Volume ** :** Computation of Volume of Irregular Shape**– Trapezoidal Rule / End Area Method, Prismoidal / Simpson’s Rule

**Tacheometry**, Instrument Used In Tacheometry – Tacheometer, Stadia Rod. **Different Systems of Tacheometric Measurement- **Stadia System (Fixed hair system, Movable hair system), Tangential System, Subtense Bar System, **Theory of Tacheometer, **Distance and Elevation Through Tacheometer- When a Staff Is Vertical, & When a Staff Is Perpendicular to Line of Sight.
