Symbolic block names

Symbolic names are used extensively throughout the three point solver spreadsheet

to clarify calculation equations. The blue cells are where raw data is entered. Below are the definitions:

Az_1 Azimuth (0-360) direction from point H to M.

Az_2 Azimuth from point H to L.

DistB Horizontal map distance from H to M.

DistC Horizontal map distance from H to L.

Elev1 Elevation at point H.

Elev2 Elevation at point M.

Elev3 Elevation at point L.

Pl_1 Calculated inclination (degrees) from point H to M.

Pl_2 Calculated inclination (degrees) from point H to L.

PoleAz Calculated azimuth angle (degrees) of the pole (cross product) vector.

PolePl Calculated plunge angle (degrees) of the pole (cross product) vector.

Theta_S Calculated angle (radians) between the apparent dip vectors.

X_1,Y_1,Z_1 Directional components of vector 1 (HM).

X_2,Y_2,Z_2 Directional components of vector 2 (HL).

X_S,Y_S,Z_S Directional components of the cross product solution (pole to plane).

Note that the geometry of the problem is depicted in graphical form in the following worksheet chart. The user

should be aware that the chart will almost always use different X and Y scales by default. It will be the responsibility

of the user to override the default scaling so that the X and Y scales are equivalent. If the grid on the chart appears

as "squares", the X and Y scales are equivalent (or nearly so).

STEP 1: From the base map pick the higher elevation point and label it as "H". Label the intermediate and lowest elevation points "M" and "L".

Make sure that point "H" is the highest elevation, "M" is the intermediate, and that point "L" is the lowest elevation value.

STEP 2: Measure the azimuth between "HM" and "HL". Also measure distances according to scale.

STEP 3: Calculate the elevations of points H, M, and L with topographic contours or other means. Remember to convert drill depths to elevations!

The worksheet assumes that units are equivalent among distance and elevation measurements. If not, convert to a consistent unit system at this step.

STEP 4: Enter the measurements from steps 1-3 into the cells in blue color.

STEP 5: Read the strike and dip of the plane containing the points H, M, and L in the lower portion of the spreadsheet in the green cells.

NOTE: Magenta and green cells contain formulae or labels, therefore, you may consider turning on "protection" so they are not accidentally currupted from inadvertent typing.

Usage

This spreadsheet calculates the strike and true dip of a structural plane given three points on the plane that have

known elevation and relative bearings and distances. Normally this is the case when a planar geologic contact can

be traced over irregular topography. The three elevations are determined from topographic contours whereas the

bearings are measured with a protractor relative to geographic north. Distances between points are measured using

the maps scale. Alternatively, contours of subsurface structures may be used to measure the required parameters, however,

remember that this method assumes that the structure is planar!

Calculation Method

The method works via the cross-product of two vectors. The two vectors defined by "HM" and "HL" must lie within the structural plane

for which we want to know the strike and dip. The upper portion of the spreadsheet converts the raw data into the attitude of these two

vectors. In the upper portion of the spreadsheet the two vectors are converted into directional cosines, and then the cross-product is taken.

The cross-product yields the attitude of the vector perpendicular to the plane that contains the original two vectors. This is analogous to the

problem of calculating a strike and dip of a plane from two given apparent dips, which are in fact simply two lines that lay within the plane.

The rest of the spreadsheet converts the pole into a strike and true dip attitude format.
