Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Perform calculations of right triangles and scalene by various methods.
Convert horizontal angles to full-circle bearings, i.e. bearing reductions.
Compute rectangular coordinates from polar coordinates and vice versa.
Perform computations of open traverses and applying bearing swing in specific cases.
Perform computations of closed traverses and to adjust traverses by the Compass Rule.
Determine elevation differences by trigonometric leveling and level circuit adjustments.
Compute areas of closed polygons using coordinates.
Perform bearing-bearing, bearing-distance and distance-distance intersections.
Do computations on subdividing land parcels according to specific requirements and stipulations.
Carry out computations of data for setting out circular curves.
Solve compound curve and reverse curve problems.
Compute data for setting out symmetric vertical curves.
Perform calculations of areas of cross-sections of roadways and earthwork volumes.
Effective as of Spring/Summer 2007
