The name of the classroom: Mine surveying




The purpose of the laboratory:


 - carrying out laboratory work in surveying, applied Geodesy.


 The total area of the premises: 50 m2   (classroom108) 


1. The number of seats: 16


2. Technical and operational requirements: Voltage ~220V, 380 V


3. The types of activities: laboratory practical work in the discipline.




The equipment for laboratory practical work:
          Theodolite 4T30P




 Theodolite 4T30P belongs to the group of optical and mechanical theodolites of technical accuracy. It is designed for measuring horizontal and vertical angles and distances with cross wire meter, leveling with a leveler with the tube, determination of magnetic azimuth on the compass.


     Theodolite 4T30P allows shooting readings using a scale microscope; work in a three tripod manner by a removable support with built-in optical plummet.


        Leveling instrument 3H-2KL


A Leveling instrument 3H-2KL refers to optical-mechanical (counting is taken on the eye) levelers.


Regardless of the operating principle all levellers are designed to perform geometrical leveling, i.e. determination of the height difference between multiple points. The instrument installed usually on the tripod (stand), is equipped with telescope, adapted to rotate in a horizontal plane, and the sensitivity level.


Маркировка нивелиров состоит из буквенно-цифрового кода такого вида 3Н-2КЛ. Здесь цифра 3 обозначает модификацию прибора, буква Н – Нивелир, цифра 2 – среднеквадратическая погрешность на 1 километр двойного хода в миллиметрах, К – обозначает наличие компенсатора, Л – наличие горизонтального лимба для измерения горизонтальных углов с технической точностью.


Marking leveling instruments consists of an alphanumerical code of this type 3H-2KL. Here, the figure 3 is a modification of the instrument, the letter H - leveler, the figure 2 - standard error of 1 kilometer of double stroke in millimeters, K - indicates the presence of the compensator, L - the presence of the horizontal limb for measuring horizontal angles with technical precision.




          Planimeter (mechanical integrator) - the instrument that is used to determine the simple mechanical areas (integration) of closed contours, traced on the flat surface.





 The mirror Ekker is a simple geodesic instrument that serves to build the corners on the area that are multiples of 90 ° or 45 °. It consists of two small mirrors, inclined to each other at an angle of 45 °. Above the mirrors there are slits for free eye sight. One direction or a number of milestones can be seen in the slit, the other direction (the required perpendicular to the first) is vised twith he line of sight, reflected by both mirrors.




Survey stake


 Survey stake is a wooden bar with marked graduation on it; used for reading of altitudes when leveling


Odometer is a device for measuring the length of the winding lines, most of the maps, plans and drawings. Odometer consists of a toothed roller on the handle of known diameter and the counter of the passed number of teeth. To measure the length of a curve it is rolled with odometer roller. Typically, the device has two dials (one on each side), while the scale of one of them is marked in centimeters and another is in inches.




Measuring tape INDEX XYB-5010


Measuring tape INDEX XYB-5010 is a tool bar with a scale designed for measuring linear dimensions. Of open type, equipped with a steel tape with wear resistant nylon coating. The casing is made of high strength plastics and comprises a metal core. There is a system of accelerated winding and convenient carrying handle.




The length of the measuring tape is 30m.
- nylon coated tape significantly increases its resistance to wear;
- convenient system of rewinding the tape;
- Shock-resistant, tough tape - can withstand bending and twisting;
- Protected from abrasion, easy to clean with water;
- Rubberized grip comfortably and conveniently in the hand;
- the divisions on the scale are applied with high precision;
- The case is made of high-strength plastic.




Measuring wheel Nedo Mini




Measuring wheel is a digital measurement tool that can measure the distance faster and easier. Replacing a tape and mechanical measuring wheel it measures rectilinear distances and displays them digitally on the display, calculates the area and volume, stores multiple measurements in memory and performs other convenient features that allow each measure:


 - faster, more accurately and more conveniently.
- Large digital display located on the handle for convenience;
- Measuring and storing in memory the length, width, height;
- Calculation of area, volume, and the walls of the square;
- Precise measurement of "from wall to wall";
- Selection of units and their conversion;
- Counting function and autocounting;
- Programmable "fixed distance";
- Storing up to nine different values or measurements.


 The general principle of the road wheels is built on the transfer of the number of revolutions of wheel circumference to the mechanical or electronic counter when rolling. The main differences between the road wheels can be divided according to the type of wheel material (plastic / metal), to the wheel arrangement (needles / solid), to the meter type (mechanical / electronic), the size of the wheel circumference (1m / less than a meter), the value of the maximum measurement and scae division value, the presence or absence of brakes, weight, etc.
