Earth Work

Calculating Quantity of Earth by Knowing Dry Density Test of the Soil.

Task: To know the Density of the Soil in Kg/cum Objective: To determine the volume and weight of earth work for payment of royalty, excavation and filling by knowing the Density of the Soil. (unit of density of soil is Kg/cum). Procedure: To calculate volume of quantity of Earth / Sand / Material we...

soil nailling

SOIL NAILLING :--     Soil Nailing is an in situ reinforcing of the soil while it is excavated from the top down. A     array of soil nails which are passive inclusions are installed in a grid that functions to create a stable mass of soil.     This mass of reinforced soil functions to retain the...

Earth Filling - Converting Weight to Volume

"Density = mass/volume (ρ=m/V). So V=m/ρ and has units (kilograms)/(kilograms per cubic meter)=cubic meter. Before you can go any further with your calculation, you need to find out the density of the substance that you are trying to convert.
