Need help for penn foster civil drafting project

Recommended Posts

ReMark

I'm trying to finish up some details at the moment. Have you read through this thread....? http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?57959-Civil-drafting-school-project-help

 

Look for responses from a forum member who calls himself Car5858. He is the person who took the course and gave me copies of his drawings.

 

I'll check back in later after I finish what I have to do.

There is no section across the cul-de-sac although there is one across the driveway and some of the property on either side of it.

 

The student is asked to construct a centerline profile of the driveway starting at the Ocean Avenue cul-de-sac.

i figure it means lengthwise cause other than that it would be too small to plot out

Treat the curves line a piece of string that you picked up and stretched out taunt. You would have to indicate the stationing for the P.C. (point of curvature) and the P.T. (point of tangency). I think they are 0+50 and 1+93.87.

ok thats making some sense to me now so the top of the driveway should basically b a straight line due to the cut and fill at an elevation of 180 and below that you show where I wouldve been had there been no cut and fill and mark it up accordingly?

Here is where, as you pointed out, the instructions fail to provide enough information. Maybe a student like Car5858 fired off an email to the school and got a response that explained things a little better. I'm not sure though.

 

Anyway, I think I know what you are getting at. You are going to plot both the proposed and existing grades is that what you have in mind?

I have? Could you explain it back to me then because I'm lost!:lol:

 

I'm glad and somewhat amazed that you actually got a response this late on a Friday afternoon. Apparently P-F has one instructor who cares.

Congratulations. I'm glad to hear that you finished the project.

 

Not sure that I really provided you with that much in the way of help but you are entirely welcomed. :)

Re: existing site plan.

 

Some of your contours do not look correct.

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]32911[/ATTACH]

I think the spot elevation on the far left should be 21 and not 2.1 don't you?

The loop in the 120 ft. contour isn't right and the way the 130 ft. contour is formed does not appear to be correct either.

 

hi,

I am confused about units. is this one correct? I did the same way and I dont understand why the 10' in diameter BM is almost the same as 6" text?
