VERTICAL SURVEYS
4.0 semester hours equivalent (non-transferable)
Recommended Prerequisite(s): SURVEY TRIGONOMETRY

This course applies concepts learned in Survey Trigonometry to typical surveying problems. Topics include straight grades, symmetric and asymmetric vertical curves, vertical intersections, vertical aligments and redesigns. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to compute solutions to a variety of survey-related problems.

  • Straight Grades
    • Percent Grade and Second Difference
  • Vertical Curves (symmetric)
    • Nomenclature, Basic Structure
    • High / Low Points and Rate of Change
    • Vertical Curve Redesign
  • Vertical Curves (asymmetric)
  • Vertical Intersections
  • Vertical Alignments
