National Unit Number BCGCBC5006A Submission RequirementsField Projects
A report need to be submitted for each field exercise
that you carry out. Please make sure all items on the coversheet are enclosed. Lack of
information will result in the submission not being accepted. Each student must We have only one theodolite and all field exercises
are done in groups of maximum four (4) students. 'The group size depends on the
enrolment of student. The Write the reports as soon as possible after the field
exercise. Don’t forget to include an Assignment Attachment Form. Individual group members will be orally
assessed to verify that the competencies have been achieved. A word processor should be use to write
the reports. The font is to be
Let an independent person read your
report before you submit it. If this person has a clear understanding of the objectives
of the field exercise that you carried out and has a clear understanding what
you have written in your report then the report is ready for submission. ## Your
report should be handed in as soon as possible.
You will be given 3 different assessments - Setting out a building with the aid of
chainline & offsets (offset method)
- Setting out a building with a
theodolite (horizontal angles) polar coordinates
- Measure
height of buildings with a theodolite (vertical angles)
You are required
to: - calculate all dimensions and angles
given in assessments; use sketches for reference
- carry out the field exercise, record procedure
inclusive all measurements (dimensions & angles) and reference the
calculation of dimensions & angles in your field sketch.
- prepare a final scaled sketch of the
exercise including all measurements.
- compare
the given dimensions and angles with all dimensions and angles from the
field exercise.
## Field notes
Records ·
List
all the equipment that is needed for the project you’ll do. ·
List
step by step how you carry out the field work (Assessments) ·
Make
sure your group has all records for the preparation of the final report ## Sketches / Diagrams
·
Neatly
drawn sufficient freehand sketches to reference all calculated figures. Letters
and numbers must be readable and need to be min. 3 mm in height. ·
Use
the same letters & numbers in the freehand sketch that have been used in your
calculations. ## Calculations
·
All
calculations must be logically set out. State which formula you have used for
the specific type of calculation. (Don’t mix up units) ·
Check
all dimension for accuracy, are the field measurements the same as the
calculated measurements? If not describe why not in your discussion. ·
Use
trigonometric function to calculate the angles from field data. ·
Calculate
areas and all side length of the set-out building(s). · Use tabular form where possible and where
applicable draw neat sketches or diagrams. ## Drawings
Scaled drawings of
the lot & building(s) outline must be included (one from given data &
one from field data). Additional sketches may be required for clarification of
you calculations. ## Discussion
Evaluate existing
given procedures and field survey data and discuss your results - is there any
dissimilarity? A significant part of the exercise is
A conclusion should be as clear & concise as
possible. Give particulars of the success or failure of the field exercise.
Bring up anything that has not been covered in your discussion. ## Safety
## For all field exercises students
must wear a safety vest and appropriate footwear (tongs or sandals are not
accepted).
## It is highly recommended
to wear a wide brimmed hat (baseball cap style not suitable), long sleeved
shirt with collar, long trousers (or similar)
## Students have the responsibility to assess the risk
and decide what to wear. During sunny weather don't forget to use sun protection
body cream!
Use extreme care when you do the fieldwork. If you observe
or feel that unsafe working conditions exist, inform the lecturer immediately. If you need
trigonometric formulas look at the webpage for sin, cos and tan
function as well as sin and cos rules |
