## Mass haul help- What do I apply the bulking factor to?

(OP)

For my surveying class I have been given the following exercise on mass haul:

Chainage (m) Volume(m^3)

0 0

200 -13800

400 -5000

600 +2000

800 +16800

1000 +12000

1200 +5000

1400 +1200

1600 +1000

1800 -3000

2000 -5600

2200 -9000

2400 -11000

2600 -8000

Bulking factor = 1.1

I understand that I need to calculate the cumulative volume and use this to draw the mass haul diagram. I am unsure which values to apply the bulking factor of 1.1 to.

Would the bulking factor only be used to correct the volumes of cut soil or would it be used for all of the volumes?

Thanks for any help

## RE: Mass haul help- What do I apply the bulking factor to?

so if you excavate 10 bank yards of material, you will haul 11 loose yards. and then when you place and compact the material it will shrink and you will have 9 yards in the embankment
