Disposal fee’s can be much more significant then haulage costs. Tip fee’s around Sydney are close to $200/ton.
Questions and Answers
Excavation is removing heavy rock and actually moving the earth in an area. Grading is taking a bob cat or some other piece of equipment and leveling out the ground. Excavation is done on major construction sites and when clearing land for building residential homes. Grading is done on both of these type jobs but also is used in landscaping. Many new construction home and commercial companies have landscapers come in and level the property so plants can be installed along with any other outdoor features. In a smaller grading job, I have used a tiller to level out the future landscaped area. I hope this has helped some and anwsered your questions. Take a look at my website for other ideas in any landscape solutions.
A braced excavation is constructed in saturated ground. The excavation is dewatered during construction
and is supported by diaphragm walls that are braced at the top by horizontal struts. The
purpose of the FLAC analysis is to evaluate the deformation of the ground adjacent to the excavation
and the performance of the wall and struts, throughout the construction stages. The analysis
starts from the stage after the wall has been constructed, but prior to any excavation. Dewatering,
excavation and installation of struts are simulated in separate construction stages. A calculation of
the factor of safety of the excavation is made after the final stage.
