Used in sites where length is much greater than width Prof Awad S. Hanna 1. End Area Method a.Take cross-sections at regular intervals, typically, 100 intervals. b.Calculate the cross-section end areas c.The volume of earthwork between sections is obtained by taking the average of the end areas at each station in square feet multiplied by the distance between sections in feet and dividing by 27 to obtain the volume in cubic yards.

Hanna Step l Determine by visual study of the site drawing if the net total will be an import (more fill required than cut) an export (less fill required than cut) or a blend (cut and fill about equal) Step 2 Determine the pattern of calculation points or grid size. Step 3 Determine elevations at each calculation location, the corners of each grid. Step 4 Calculate the cubic yards of cut or fill required in each grid cell. Step 5 Add the individual Grid Cell quantities together to arrive at the total cut, total fill volume and the import or volume export yardage required for the job. Prof Awad S. Hanna
