PART –C

5. Estimate the quantity of earthwork for the portion of a road between chainages 0 to 10 from the following data, lengths being measured with a standard 20m chain.

 Chains 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 G.L. 131.1 131.2 130.9 130.8 130.7 130.6 130.4 129.1 129.5 129

The formation level at 0 chainage is 130.0 and the road is in a rising gradient of 1 in 200. The width of formation 9 m. and the side slopes 1.5: 1 in banking and 1:1 in cutting. The lateral slope of the ground may be assumed as level. -20m
OR

1. Earthwork excavation for the pavement shown in figure
2. 6” Base concrete for the road.
3. Top concrete surface.
4. 2” Asphalt layer above top layer.
5. Asphalt kerbing on both sides.

 Unit 1- INTRODUCTION TO ESTIMATION Cognitive level –Remember 1.     What is an Estimate? What are the types of Estimation? 2.     Explain briefly detailed and Abstract Estimate. 3.     List the units of measurements for the following items of works a.     Earthwork excavation. b.     Plastering in CM 1:6 c.     Pointing in CM 1:6 4.     List the points to be kept in mind for opening deduction while doing External Plastering. 5.     List the points to be kept in mind for opening deduction while doing Internal Plastering. 6.     Write a short note on, a) BOQ, b) Lead statement. Cognitive level –Understand 1.     Write the procedure to be adopted for calculating the quantities for Earthwork Excavation. 2.     Differentiate Preliminary Estimate and Item rate Estimate.

 Unit 2- SPECIFICATIONS Cognitive level –Remember 1.     Write down the detailed Specifications for the following a.     Plastering in Cement mortar 1:6 b.     Terrazzo flooring. c.     Cement concrete 1:2:4 in foundation and Plinth. d.     Distempering for internal walls. e.     Pointing with cement mortar. Cognitive level –Understand 1. Differentiate between General specification and detailed specification. Unit 3- ANALYSIS OF RATES Cognitive level –Remember 1. Define Analysis of rates. Explain the various steps taken into consideration for

 preparing detailed Analysis of rates. 2.     List the Type of labours to be considered for different construction activities while doing analysis of rates. 3.     Format a typical Rate analysis sheet for any construction work in separate heads, Materials cost, labour cost, taxes, profit, contingencies etc. Cognitive level –Understand 1.     What are the importances of preparing Rate analysis? 2.     How to arrive Material rate and labour rate. 3.     Mention the basic information requirement for Rate analysis. Cognitive level –Application 1.      Analyse the rates for the below construction activities by using present SR book. a.     Plastering in Cement mortar 1:6 b.     Terrazzo flooring. c.     Cement concrete 1:2:4 in foundation and Plinth. d.     Distempering for internal walls. e.     Pointing with cement mortar

 Unit 4- DETAILED AND ABSTRACT ESTIMATE OF BUILDINGS Cognitive level –Remember Cognitive level –Understand 1. Explain the method of taking out the quantities by long wall & short wall method and centre line method. Cognitive level –Application 1. Unit 5- ESTIMATION OF ROAD WORKS Cognitive level –Remember 1. Estimate the quantity of earthwork for the portion of a road between chainages 0 to 10 from the following data, lengths being measured with a standard 20m chain.       The formation level at 0 chainage is 130.0 and the road is in a rising gradient of 1 in 200.
