Tutorial: Calculating Earthwork Volumes from Corridor Models
Concept Procedure
 
 
 

This tutorial demonstrates how to calculate cut and fill earthwork quantities between two surfaces.

Earthwork and material volumes are calculated by comparing two surfaces to each other. You can calculate quantities between sample lines derived from regular surface models and from corridor surfaces.

User-definable tables specify which materials are defined by which surfaces, and the characteristics of these materials. Finally, average end area analysis is used to tabulate the material quantities along the corridor.
