## How do you do cut fill analysis?

This method involves drawing horizontal and vertical lines over your site plan to divide it into grid cells of equal size. You then include the existing elevation and proposed elevation for each corner of the grid cells, and work out the difference between the two, as this will be cut or fill depth for that spot.

## Is cut and fill expensive?

## Why do we need to know the mass diagram?

Mass diagrams **indicate the spatial relationship between excavation (cut) and embankment (fill) on a project** and are good tools in planning for efficient earthwork operations. The basic excavation and embankment volumes and locations must be known before the mass diagram can be constructed.

## How do you calculate earthwork volume?

A common method of determining volumes from cross sections is that of average end areas. It assumes that the volume between successive cross sections is the average of their end areas multiplied by the distance between them. This is expressed in the formula: V (Ft.
