How to compute earthwork by applying mean area method

Calculation of area and volume is the fundamental of various engineering schemes. In surveying there are five crucial methods for making calculation of the areas in surveying.

S.L. Khan presents a very informative video tutorial where he briefly explains the process required for estimating earthwork for an embankment with help of mean area method.

In this video, the solution is given on the following problem :-

Compute the quantity of earth work for an embankment having length of 150m and width 10m at the top. Side slope is 2:1 and depths at each 30m interval are given as 0.60, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 1.4, and 1.6m. The tutorial is specifically created for quantity surveyors.

To learn the detailed calculation process, watch the following construction video tutorial.
