Total time: 3 Hours
INSTRUCTIONS
(1) Question No. 1 is compulsory.

  • b) Differentiate between Whole circle bearing (WCB) and Reduced bearing system. If $\theta$ is the WCB, what would be the reduced bearing in all four quadrants?

774

  • c) Define: i) Chainage ii) Backsigth iii) Intermediate sight iv) Foresight v) Change point.
  • d) A tacheometer has a diaphragm with three cross hairs spaced at a distance of 1.40 mm. The focal length of the object glass is 20 cm and the distance of the object glass from the trunnio axis is 10 cm. Calculate the tacheometric constants.

2(b) A road embankment 35 m wide at top with side slope of 2 to 1 have ground levels at 100 metres interval along line AB as under: A(153.0), 151.8, 151.2, 150.6, (149.2)B. The formation level at A is 162.4 with a uniformly falling gradient of 1 in 40 from A to B. Find volume of earthwork by prismoidal formula. Assume the ground to be level in c/s.

Distance 0 (pt. P) 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 (pt.Q)
Offset 2.40 3.70 4.65 6.85 5.35 7.20 8.85 8.35 5.60

The above perpendicular offsets were taken at 20 m intervals from a survey line PQ to an irregular boundary line. Calculate the area using Simpson's Rule.

6(a) Initially, a staff was held vertically at a distance of 46.2 m and 117.6 m from the centre of a theodolite fitted with stadia hairs and the staff intercepts with the telescope horizontal were 0.45 m and 1.15 m respectively. The instrument was then set over a station P having RL as 150 m, the height of instrument axis being 1.38 m . The stadia hair readings on a staff held vertically at a station Q with instrument at P were 1.200, 1.930 and 2.650 m respectively, while the vertical angle (depression) was - 9$^o$30'. Find RL of Q & dist. PQ.

6(b) A 20 m chain was found to be 6 cm too long after chaining 1500 m . It was 9 cm too long at the end of day's work after chaining a total distance of 2500 m. If the chain was correct before commencement of the work, find the distance.
