# Bounded Volumes at Key Elevations

I've had a rather odd request come in for Volume calculations and I'm not sure how to go about it.

I have 2 surfaces: 1-Design 2-Excavation to Date

Now, the engineers would like to use a dozer to push this material down the hill but they want to do it incrementally by elevation. They would like to know how much material there is to excavate above elevation 90, then between elevation 80-90, then 70-80, etc all the way to 30-40.

I attached a sketch... what is the best way to do this?

Windows 7
Processor: Intel (R) Xeon (R) CPU W3565 @ 3.20GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 12.0GB
System Type: 64-bit

Thanks

Erika

Hello from France

Just an idea : you must have 3D Solids ...

1) One for the part of Hill/Mountian (Sorry for the incorrect words, my English is not Top)

2) One other (3D BOXSolid  is enough) for each Strate (60-70, 70-80; 80-90, etc)

3) Then with the Intersect 3D Operation, you will get the info you need ...

Bye, Patrice

You have C3D, make DTM of the existing ground then punch in Cut/Fill slope then calculate volume (You need to take a class because it's not easy for a DIY)

Ask the engineer where is the planimeter, or digitize in what you have then use BOUNDARY to find the area and use your calculator.
