Chabot College Fall 2002 Course Outline for Engineering 31 PLANE SURVEYING Catalog Description: 31 - Plane Surveying 3 units Use of surveying instruments: tape EDM, level, transit, theodolite measurement and errors. Computations for traverse, horizontal and vertical curves, earthwork. Topographic surveys, boundary surveys. Prerequisite: Engineering 20 and Mathematics 36 or Mathematics 37. 2 hours lecture, 3 hours laboratory. Prerequisite Skills: Before entering the course the student should be able to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. do geometric constructions using drafting instruments; print using proper lettering techniques; construct multiview drawing using orthographic projection; sketch and construct two and three dimensional drawings; do dimension drawing and demonstrate an understanding of tolerances; construct sections and auxiliary views; identify basics of computer graphics and computer-assisted design identify and use the trigonometric ratios in problem solving; use radian measure; define trigonometric functions in terms of the right triangle and the unit circle; write down from memory the values of sine, cosine, and tangent functions of standard angles, both in degree and radian measure; write down from memory the Pythagorean identities, reciprocal identities, double angle formulas for sine and cosine, and sum and difference formulas for the sine and cosine; prove trigonometric identities; use trigonometric formulas; solve trigonometric equations with multiple angles over different intervals; use the law of sines and the law of cosines to solve oblique triangles; graph trigonometric functions; graph the inverse sine, inverse cosine, and inverse tangent functions; convert between polar coordinate system and rectangular coordinate system; graph polar equations; define and/or illustrate: segment, ray, angle, midpoint of a segment, bisector of an angle or segment, types of triangles and other polygons, congruence and similarity of triangles, perpendicular and parallel lines; use definitions of the items in (8), along with postulates and theorems about them, together with undefined terms, to prove geometric theorems, both synthetically and analytically; and both directly and indirectly; compute areas and volumes of geometric figures. Expected Outcomes for Students: Upon completion of the course the student should be able to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. measure distances by taping and by EDM; measure elevation differences with the engineer's level; use a transit or theodolite for angular measurements; make traverse calculations and adjustments; make calculations for and lay out horizontal circular curves, and parabolic vertical curves; make earthwork calculations including areas and volumes; draw a topographic map; make statistical analyses of errors in measurement; identify legal implications in land surveying.
