BIRLA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY & SCIENCE, PILANI Instruction Division First Semester 2012-2013 Course Handout (Part II)

Date: 03/08/2012 In addition to Part I (General Handout for all courses appended to the Time Table), this portion gives further specific details regarding the course. Course No. : CE C392 Course Title : Geodesy Instructor In-Charge : G MUTHUKUMAR Instructors : Meghna Charde Course Description: The compulsory disciplinary course has been designed to introduce the basic concepts of geodesy (surveying) for Civil Engineering students. Different basic and advanced methods of measurements and traversing have been included so that the student will be able to handle a given project independently, irrespective of whether it is a road or any other infrastructure project. Important issues like curve setting, calculation of areas and volumes, which form part and parcel of any filed civil engineer in his/her day to day activity. Hence in this course, these areas have also been included. Scope & Objective: The course introduces to the students, various basic techniques in surveying, viz. chain, compass, theodolite, plane table, tacheometry, traversing and calculation of areas and volumes along with fundamentals of a few advanced surveying techniques.

Chamber Consultation Hour: To be announced in the class Notices: Watch Civil Engineering department Notice Board Make-up Policy: 1. Make-up will be granted only on genuine reasons. However, prior permission is must. 2. For medical cases, a certificate from the concerned physician of the Medical Centre must be produced. Special Instructions for Survey Field Work: 1. Students must collect the instruments in the specified time. Late arrival will not be entertained. 2. The students must come to the field- work with a field observation book or any other specified field book, pencil, scale and a calculator. The field- work record must be submitted in the next field- work class. 3. Since the work may involve standing in the sun for longer duration of time, you are advised to wear caps during field surveys Instructor-in-charge CE C392
