INTRODUCTION

Two peg test: As in other survey work it is a compulsory to carry out checking towards instrument used in field work. Hence in levelling work it is necessary to carry out the two peg test. The purpose of this checking is to ensure the instrument in good condition. Based on observation made, we will compute the difference reading value and the result should be within 10mm. If the value is more than 10mm redo the observation or hand the instrument to the lab assistance for them to do the physical checking towards the instrument. (s1-s2)-(s3-s4) = ±1mm Differential field test: Purpose of this test is also to determine the condition of the total station. Its applied as the same concept in two peg test procedure. At the end of the test, we will compute the different value between two readings to know the value. The value limitation is in between ± 0.010mm. if the value is more than the limitation then, we should not used the total station or else it will produce an accurate result of field work. 3.2 OBJECTIVES

Two peg test and differential field test: 1. To determine the accuracy of the instrument 2. To know the condition of the instrument 3. To learn how to do the calibration of the instrument

INSTRUMENTATION

Total station is the most important instrument in survey works. It is used in traversing and collecting detail survey. We can obtain bearings and distance and almost accurate using this instrument. Most setting out work can be readily and accurately accomplished by the method of coordinates

Prism used as a target to measure distances. Prism is placed on top of the tripod. As the reflector unit where it will give the information about bearing and distance during the observation

Tripod is used to place the total station and prism on top of it. Tripod is placed at back sight and foresight together with the prism. In this surveying work, instead of using prism as target, we used arrow to mark the setting out point.

SUG 596 - FIELD SCHEME II (ENGINEERING SURVEY)

2010

Tape will used to measure the distance from one station to another.

Field Book is used for recording observation data during the survey work using permanent black ink. Observation data that must be recorded are bearing, distance, stations, pre-computations, latitude, departure and coordinate of stations. A freehand sketch of the lot surveyed must be included in the field book.

Length of Nail is not less 55mm and centre with lines 8mm. Head of nail must be centre with lines 15mm and have lid centre with lines 46mm with to possess evidence for a drop of station. We used hammer to hit the spikes in marking the stations

Staf is used to give height of the ground. It is used with bubble. When we want to read the height, we must make sure that the staf in a level condition. The accuracy of the staf is 0.001m.

CONCLUSION

Two peg test: Based on our observation it can be shown that our instrument is in a good condition since the difference value between 2 set of reading are in acceptable limit which is 0.001m and 0.002m less than 0.010m. Hence, we will get high accuracy in observation and will produce an accurate work.

Differential field test: Based on the observation the difference value that we got is 0.003 hence the total station we used is in a good condition. So, at the end of our field work can form a result of high accuracy. The different value that we got is o.ooom and 0.001m

INTRODUCTION

Deformation survey work is to determine the alteration in the shape or dimensions of an object as a result of the application of stress to it. Deformation is primarily related to the field of applied surveying, and also related to the civil engineering, mechanical engineering, plant construction, soil and rock stability mechanics. Instruments used in deformation monitoring based on application, chosen method and regularity. The concepts are: • • • • • Involved the multi-epoch observation. The network of survey that involved from the control point and target point. The observation by triangulation either 2D or 3D. The adjustment computations and network analyses are required. Involved the determination of the coordinates changing (shift) and comparison with the magnitude of the error of observation (ellipse error). Deformation monitoring can be required for the following applications: • Roads and Tunnels Dams, Bridges and Viaducts Settlement areas, High-rise and historical buildings Foundations and Construction sites Mining

CONCLUSION

Deformation monitoring is one of survey work which the purpose is to determine the condition of a building structure or dam or tunnel and etc whether there is any movement occur since the structure is build. The detection of the movement is based on the bearing reading taken on each point on the building on the different time. As a result, if t here is any movement occurred then, the bearing reading observed archived will de differ from time to time and the interval time depends on the expected movement. If not, the bearing reading will be the same. Control point is a must as a reference of the structure position. Movement can occurred due to any movement in the earth, quality of composition of the structure, natural sources and etc. Hence, if we managed to detect any movement occurred we can take any precaution to prevent any negative things happen. Any deformation survey must pay particular attention to errors in the survey so that gross or systematic errors do not contaminate the detection of movements and produce false results. Graphical representations of deformation analyses are often shown as ellipses with vectors of movement. 3D and multi-epoch

representations area are possible with CAD system. As the building newly build, hence there are no movement occur towards the building. In order to form a 3D visualization of the building, we need to combine each of group results where each group observed on different point around the building. We also need to observed z value in order to get the 3D design of building. As a result when we combined all of each group result we managed to form it in 3D monitoring form. Where each point on their own position shown the shape of the building.

4.9 BY:

INDIVIDUAL COMMENTS NUR SHAFINAZ BT HASSAN BASERI (2008401502) Based on our work, what do i understand is that deformation monitoring is

about movement detection on any construction structure such as building, bridge and etc. There most important thing in this work is control point and bearing reading. Control point used as reference of the true position of any structure mean while the bearing reading is used as detection of mark point on the building from time to time. In full fill our task, we were asking to form a product in 3D. Hence the reading of height and slope distance is needed. The true position of control point can be obtains from GPS system. For true position of mark point on the building can be archived trough transfer method. To determine and confirmation of our work

product at the end of work, each group will combine the result and it will form the dimension of the building in 3D form. Most important thing in this work is in determination of control point. In setting up the control point must undergo the traversing. The datum used can be either assume datum or used the real value. Here, in our task we use from GPS value. Plus, we also undergo least square equation towards our result in order remove all the error in our reading. Once the error had been eliminated then it will produce an accurate result. We used star net software to process all the data were we need to key in all the data capture in notepad format first.

BY:

FAUZIAH BT ABDUL MALEK (2008401502) Deformation survey is very precise surveys performed to detect and measure

movements of a variety of physical objects or land parcels. Deformation surveys can detect relative or absolute movements for monitoring. The procedures of deformation survey job are not as difficult and complicated as the other types of survey. If only change in shape, then a minimal constraint or free network solution can be used to avoid any influence from external constraints. If a block shift or rotate, then connection must be made to survey stations which are sited in stable areas to provide the required absolute datum. Survey for deformation is generally repeated at certain time intervals that depend on the expected movement or settlement of the structure.

Our task is to detect any relative of absolute movement for the retaining wall. We must compare our result from other group that have been used the same control point by comparing the coordinates for all point at the wall of the building but the wall of building that has been choose by our group was not same as all the other groups. So, we cannot compare the coordinates of point at the wall with the other groups. To find the coordinates at the retaining wall, it is possible to calculate manually because it take a lots of calculation and quite difficult to solve it. So we have used StarNet programming to find the coordinates points of the retaining wall. By using the programmed, we could know all the coordinates and also be able to know the standard deviation and residual for the retaining wall. While monitoring the building, the slope distance must be read for design three dimensional building. Before the measurements be made, we must make sure that the sticker that used as a observed point on the building can reflect the signal from the theodelite for slope distance measurement. This is because we found that some of the sticker cannot reflect the signal from the theodelite. Furthermore, the signal from theodelite also cannot be reflected if the station is far from the building. Because of that, we decide to choose the station nearest to the building as long as it can measure the slope distance.

This movement can be detected by comparing the deformation result with history, to get the best value for error by using statistical calculation from redundant observation. For the first day, we done reconnaissance at the building for target identification and decide where the control point should be established. The control point should be safe from disturbance so the observation does not contain too much error. Moreover, the control point should not be established too close from the

building. The shape of control point should be in good triangle. It means the inner angle is between 60 degree and 120 degree. Before we done the traversing, the datum for network control was taken from GPS observation on station 11 and 2. After done traversing around the building, we get the linear misclose of 1:9000 using bowditch method. But there are some different when the misclose is calculate using starnet software which applying Least Square Adjustment (LSA). The linear misclose when using starnet software is 1:400 000. This situation happen when starnet use LSA to calculate error for each station from redundant observation. Meanwhile the bowditch method generally distributed error equally for each station. For the observation, we have observed 4 points from 3 control points which are. We also determined the Z value for each station using GPS observation to get reduce level for each control station. The purpose of the leveling survey is to design 3-dimension deformation in StarNet. It needs the Z value to design the 3-D dimension. For my comment, the location of target should be well spread around of the building and not focus at one certain part only. Moreover, the target point should be at stable place and should have clear line of sight. In my opinion, the observation should avoid during afternoon because during afternoon, the refraction and sun heat make the observation contain error. Moreover, the targets become blurry when afternoon. In addition, the instrument should be done calibration first before it use for observation. To obtain good observation, the control point should have good geometry. By using StarNet software its can detect all of error in observation, this software is good to make the analysis for the surveying work. From this software we can define how well the field work, because its use more statistical calculation for analysis. I suggest, all of student for survey studies need more knowledge about StarNet software and must be expert to handle StarNet software. Because it’s good for analysis survey data and define error. BY: MOHD ZULKARNAIN BIN ZAINAL ABIDIN (208411092) Deformation task required us to conduct the deformation survey at the Student’s facilities building, nearby the crystal college, UiTM Penang. We are given 2 days to finish the task. The works involved in this survey work are reconnaissance, traversing, GPS coordinate conversion and transferring, deformation and processing the collection of data. The processing of data is used using StarNet software.

Before starting a job, reconnaissance of the area is very important, to investigate and to get familiar with the area. Reconnaissance are needed to properly planed the works involve to ensure smooth flow and to avoid any obstacle during the field work. Deformation work mainly focused on detecting or to identify any movement or deformation of a certain manmade structure, which in this case is a building. The work given requires observation of the target points mounted on the sides of the building, and should be done in time frame to monitor the movement of the building. However, as we only has a few days to complete the job, the job was conducted only for learning process of the procedure, methods and the main objectives is to understand the whole process of conducting the job. The control points located on the building are pre determined, as a group required observing minimum 4 target points on the building, from 3 ground control points. As the work requires us to observe the same points on the building, the target points located on the building must be visible from all the ground control points. The best locations for the ground control points are identified and the processes of observing the building are then started, starting from the traversing work. The 1st task is to establish the ground control points. This is obtained by traversing around the student facilities building. Then the coordinate of the control points or stations are determined by transferring the coordinate from the GPS observation made from 2 stations, located on the traverse network itself. The GPS observation also gives the corrected bearing for the traverse, as the rotations of the traverse are done. The data processing of the traverse are made in StarNet, using 3D parameter, to obtain the least square correction for the traverse. As the job require all 10 groups to be located on the same building with minimum 3 stations per group, the distances between the stations are quite small, thus affecting the accuracy of the traverse work.

Then the deformation work was carried out, by observing 4 sets of different starting bearing for all 3 points on the building. During the deformation survey process, we were required to obtained the slope distance from the ground control points to the building CP. The method used was by using reflective stickers on the building, to rebounce back the wave signal send from the Total Station. There were issues of reflective capability of the sticker, but the problem is then solved by selecting the right material. Finally, I would to conclude that the work done was very successful, although there were some problems arise at the site, such as the problem with the sticker wave rebounces capability. Other than that, the process of data processing using the StarNet software were very time consuming, as we are not so familiar with using the software.

MUHAMMAD KHAIRI BIN IDRUS (2008401526) I would like to say thank you to Allah s.w.t for giving His opportunity for

completing this deformation project. Also thanks to my lecturer, Dr Rosmadi Bin Ghazali, and all my friends for the guidance and cooperation. The objective of this practical is to train students how to detect the movement object from observation with total station. As we have learnt, deformation surveys are very presice survey in engineering works. It is performed to detect and measure movements of a variety of physical objects or land parcels. In this project, we are needed to monitor and detect any movement at Student’s facilities building, nearby the crystal college, UiTM Penang . Firstly, we done reconnaissance at the building and we decide where the control point should be established. The control point should be in suitable location. The control point should not be established too close from the building because the shape of control point should be in good triangle. The datum for network control was taken from GPS observation on station 11 and 2 and we make the traverse around the building that we want monitoring. After that, we have observed 4 target points from 3 control points which are. Then, we also determined the Z value for each station using GPS observation to get reduce level for each control station. It is to design 3-dimension deformation in StarNet. It needs the Z value to design the 3-D dimension. The error also came from the observation by the different obsever, the different observer will gain the different observation value. The instrument for the observation also brings important result, smaller error will comes out with the accurate value for these accurately survey. If we can see the zenith error from the result of the analysis above, the value was too high and absolutely not in the acceptance range of the chi square. My comment it was we used the standard

leveling, in my opinion we should come out with the precise leveling to get more accurately result .The points on the wall also play an important result for this accuracy survey. The unclear and invisibility crosshair of centering on the points will produce an error during the observation.

Assalamualaikum. All praise to be ALLAH. Thanks to Dr Rosmadi Bin Ghazali for his guidance in this fieldwork. Deformation surveys are very precise survey performed to detect and measure movement of a variety of physical objects or land parcels. Beside that deformation surveys can detect relative or absolute movements for monitoring of pump base or pipe connections, storage tanks, retaining walls, slope areas or general ground subsidence but in this practical we just to monitoring the retaining walls. The procedures of deformation survey job are not as difficult and complicated as the other types of survey. In this practical task we are needed to monitor and detect any movement of the building of dining hall at Kolej Kristal, UiTM Pulau Pinang. There are 3 control points on the ground at station 8, 9, 10 and 4 observe points. At the first day, we had done reconnaissance of the area to identify the suitable location for control points. There are 10 groups those co-operated to conduct traverse around the building of dining hall. The traverse used to determine the coordinate of ground control. The 3 control points were used in the monitoring. The next day, we conduct the monitoring from the control point station to observe the 4 target points on the wall of building of dining hall. We spend two day to complete this job. During do the practical, i noticed that weather condition also affect our sight viewing to target that give the refraction because the hot weather. Rain also delayed our fieldwork. Human error exists in our data reading because difference observers have difference parallax. The observation also difficult to done because the sticker at the wall unable to reflect. However, after the little adjustment that had been done to the sticker, the observation able to read by using total station finally.

For the processing data, Starnet software was used. The observation data is entering to calculate standard error, error factor, error propagation and residual. Starnet give a plot and listing the coordinate at 4 targets and our observation data is acceptable. At the end I hope this practical helpful to me as a guideline in the real job. I conclude that this task enable to identify the changing in construction monument. I hope our lecturer satisfy with this practical. InsyaALLAH.

MUHAMMAD RUZAINI BIN MOHAMMAD FADZIL (2009837016) Alhamdulilah, for the completion of the task. Deformation Surveying is about a precise surveying conducted to detect and monitor the movement of the physical structure in the engineering field.

ii. In this task we have been assigned to monitor the structural of a three-storey building which taking consider of observing four target points. Two target points were placed at the first floor and the other two at the second floor. iii. At the first thing, a three dimensional traverse control has been done around the building purposely for setting up stations for deformation. And the traverse has been controlled with two known (x, y, z) GPS points. iv. We have to observe the height of instrument, height of target point, slope distance between the instrument to target point instead the horizontal angles and the vertical angles. v. for the observation of the target points, we have observed with three different horizontal angles (0°, 90°, 180°) for the both face of left and right. vi. Once the observation finished, based on the yet two known GPS control, it would be input into the Star*Net Least Square Adjustment software, to make an adjustment for the traverse station and also the four target points. vii. The traverse control network has passed the 5% Chi Square Test but unfortunately the target points (1071, 1072, 1073, and 1074) were not. viii.As a result of the adjustment, all the target points would be produced with the coordinate of X and Y plus the elevation. This is what it called three dimensional monitoring.

CONCLUSION It can be said that route survey is a work that consist of several important

procedure to make sure it will form a high accuracy result in the end of the work. It accomplishes the need of engineering field work according to the need of customer. In other word, routes survey is defined as being the required service and product that adequately locates the planned path of a linear project or right of way which crosses a prescribed area of real estate, extending from at least one known point and turning or terminating at another known point. Adequate location shall mean

substantial compliance with the conditions and tolerances expressed in this standard. Based on our field work, now we able to visualise how the real world is for route survey work, especially the condition of the ground, complication of detailing, appearance of station invisibility, any natural problem and etc. In producing high accuracy of work product depends on how close we carry out the traverse. In our task, in order to check our work is correct or not, at the end of the work we must compare our product with the others group which each of group must get an equal and parallel distance between the curve designs. However the main problem is that each group us a different datum. Hence the possibility in getting error is high. As a result, in order to checking each of group work the combination of the circular curve are parallel to each other. Even though each group use the different datum supposed to be that the circular to be parallel since it use the value from big traverse as a reference to their small traverse.

based on the details, area parameter, ground level and all off sets on the area work. In this work also involve the use of CDS software which is use as processing data and AutoCAD which is use to design. If error occurred in bearing determination and design calculation, later it will effect during setting out process. Plus, during traverse work also is important where it act as a horizontal control. If there is error in control, hence during setting out will produce an absolute high error result. We used GPS in order to get coordinate value. During setting out procedure, must be based on a right bearing and distance compute from the planning drawing that had been made. After open the bearing based on calculation made, then the pegging must be done wisely and accurately. The checking step based on the coordinate reading where the same point must the same coordinate value. At the end of our work, now I realise and able to visualize on how the real world is in full fill the route survey work. All the possibility that I might face during route survey and how to solve also I have learn. Including all the possibility of the condition of the ground, complication of detailing, appearance of station invisibility, any natural problem and etc

The objective of this practical is to train surveying students how to plan and reconnaissance for route surveying, how to establish control points on ground, how to conduct route alignment and how to conduct a cross section and longitudinal surveys. details on the site were observed to identify the topography and layout of the site. Besides, the observe details on the area are made to carry out detail survey for the purpose of designing and planning for the road design and to produce a detail drawing of the site. Firstly, we make traverse. It is required to established the control network frame on the site, and to obtained a roughly estimation of the site area. Then, we get the coordinate of the station on the traverse by GPS observation on two stations located on the traverse network.The traverse made by ourselves in this practical and we just to peg chainages above traverse line. Then, we transfer the coordinates by calculation. When the field work were completed, we used CDS and AutoCAD to process all data that taken, and produce cross section and detail plan.

I wish to thank Dr Rosmadi bin Ghazali for providing me with the opportunity to work alongside him, for all his patience and guidance in the way of conducting the field work. The field work for road design survey was conducted at the Taman Tunku, Seberang Jaya, Penang. The objective for this practical are to establish control points (horizontal and vertical) around or in the area and chainages (CH) using pegs. Moreover, the details on the site were observed to identify the topography and layout of the site. Besides, the observe details on the area are made to carry out detail survey for the purpose of designing and planning for the road design and to produce a detail drawing of the site. All measurements in this practical are based on a network of horizontal and vertical control points. These networks are used on site in the preparation of maps and plans. Firstly, traversing is required to established the control network frame on the site, and to obtained a roughly estimation of the site area. The coordinate of the station on the traverse are obtained from GPS observation on two stations located on the traverse network itself. Then, the coordinate are transferred to the chainage using calculated value from the road design curve. After all the detail survey and traversing work are done, all data we downloaded from the total station using the T-Com software. Data processing are done by using the CDS software, all data downloaded in CDS software where graphic image from observation can be produced and editing by file checking on screen. This software can produced data or information from measured points of station. Each of those points has their level and coordinates. All complete data then exported to AutoCAD R14 software in DWG format and graphic editing will be plotted to the final plan. Then, the curve or the road design took place. The design was made based on the details drawing that were made earlier. From the design, the calculation for the curve was made to obtain every chainage, IP, TS and ST coordinate. The final coordinate are used to obtained the bearing and distance by calculating the differences in coordinate from the traverse stations. Lastly, the chainage are pegs according to the calculated values. Finally, I would like to conclude that the survey and design work that has been carried out was a success, with minimum obstacle, as the planning work was conducted accordingly.

MOHD RIZALMAN BIN RASIDIN (2009201944) AlhamdulillaH, a grateful thanks I wish to our Creator as He is the only who

can give us ideas and zest especially to complete this route surveying practical. First of all, I would like to wish a big thankful to our lecturer Dr Rosmadi bin Ghazali as his pleasant teaching in this subject and definitely we had completely finished this practical route surveying and not forgotten to our group members in finishing this practical work. We have done the procedure work accordly. Starting with reconnaissance on the first week, we identify the area before observations started. Every group is assigned to a different area at Taman Tunku, Seberang Jaya, Penang. After that, we carried out traversing works for establishing control points. The absolute values of the corrected horizontal and vertical value were obtained using GPS observation. These steps are very important for every surveying observation. The second process of the practical works required for detailed survey at the given area. The detail survey works were conducted by making observation from stations on the traverse network frames, to the features on the site. The pickup features on the site, are trees, drainage, river, building and others permanent features and the ground level heighting. After all the field work done, we downloaded and processed all the data in total station to T-COM software. All the raw data were then imported to CDS software and then transferred to Auto CAD. In Auto CAD, detail plan are made, by based on the points extracted from the CDS software. The details survey plans that were drawn are used to obtained the topographic features on the site and then are used to design the curve. The curve design were created using autocad based on the spec given. Then, then curve are

FAUZIAH BT ABDUL MALEK (2008401502) Route survey includes the application of detailed survey, setting out and

circular curves. Details on the site were observed to identify the topography and layout of the site. The observed details on the area are made to carry out detail survey for the purpose of designing and planning for the road design and to produce a detail drawing of the site. Setting out is the establishment of the marks and lines to define the position and level of the elements for the construction work so that works may proceed with reference to them. Setting out begins with the plan and ends with the various elements of a particular engineering project correctly positioned in the area. Mistakes in setting out can cause abortive work and delays which leave personnel, machinery and plant idle, resulting in additional costs. In this practical, we make traverse which required to established the control network frame on the site and to obtained a roughly estimation of the site area. After that, we use GPS observation on two stations on the traverse network to get the coordinate of the station. Then, we peg chainages above traverse line and transfer the coordinates by calculation. This operation should incorporate a checking procedure. Work is not complete until it has been checked. We did the coordinate checking between calculation and GPS observation and the checking proved that our coordinate that we calculated are nearly accurate. The set back bearing at back stations and open a long chord bearing with it distance for pegging to make a spiral and circular curves. The circular that we peg should be align and intersect with the other groups. We have checked the accuracy of IP point of our group and others which are parallel with our circular, and the results is around 0.1 to 0.3.

All praise to be ALLAH. Thanks to Dr Rosmadi Bin Ghazali for his guidance in this fieldwork. In this practical the main objective is to design a road based on horizontal and vertical control point around the site area. Our site area is at Taman Tunku, Seberang Jaya, Pulau Pinang. At the first, traversing is done at the site area to get the horizontal control (x, y) along route. The coordinate of the control point on the traverse are obtained from GPS. Then, the detail at the site area are observed and recorded for the purpose of designing the route and detail drawing. Besides that we are recorded all important details think such as drain, tree, retaining wall, Culvert, Pipe line Ground Level. Along traverse we are marked chainage every 5 meter intervals. The coordinate of chainage (CH) can be obtained from the curve calculation. Then, we used CDS software to process the data and plotting the plan using AutoCAD. Besides, using CDS is easier to joint all details compared to AutoCAD because we just need to key-in all the data and then process but in AutoCAD we have to key-in the data one by one and joint the details which is much more complicated. After all measurement, calculation and plotting are completed; we marked the chainage(CH), TS,ST and IP according to calculated values.

MUHAMMAD RUZAINI BIN MOHAMMAD FADZIL (2009837016) Alhamdulillah for the completion of the job. Route surveying is about a survey which conducted to design and setting out a road alignment and some would take consider curves.

ii. And this route surveying is mainly comprised of details survey and alignment survey, which the later details plan produced, would give an idea which terrain is suitable to design a road. iii. Basically the site is mainly a flat and undulating area although some part of it is waterway, river and permanent features. iv. The control for the survey job is based on an assumed value of x, y and assumed reduced level of z. v. The details are observed using a radiation method using total station and later would be processed and generated using CDS software. And the final output is a detail and topographical plan which was edited using AutoCAD 2007. vi. The area covered is about 10000 meter square with an offset for the both side 20 meters.
