HOW DOES LAND SURVEYING WORK?


Almost every property development project starts with a survey. And depending on the type of surveying that needs to be done, it can involve several different processes. Construction or engineering surveyors study changes in property lines. They also identify the exact location of buildings and roads. Geodetic surveyors use satellite and aerial imaging to measure very large portions of the earth. Boundary or land surveyors want to determine the exact location of property lines. Surveyors also have to use the right tools because it will ensure accurate results, and it will typically include a theodolite and level.


HOW TO SET GRADE WITH A LASER LEVEL


Set up the laser on a tripod placed on firm, dry ground while making sure the tripod is stable. Turn on the laser and give it a moment to self-level. Identify the initial height of your grade. The pitch will slide downward from there. Place the bottom of the leveling rod at the desired height, and adjust the laser detector up or down until you hear beeping. Secure the detector to the rod, and identify the desired amount of fall from the top of the grade to the bottom. Move the detector up in accordance with your grading needs before securing it. Walk to where the bottom of the grade will be as you find level with the laser detector. And depending on the workspace, you will either have to lift the rod or dig into the ground.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a fiber blowing machine?

A fiber blowing machine is used to install fiber optic cable by connecting to a duct system and using compressed air to push the cable through. This process has some advantages over the pulling technique, because it puts less strain on the fiber (which can reduce the chance for damage during installation).

How does a fiber blowing machine work?

The first step in using a fiber blowing machine is to verify duct integrity. You can find any damage or leaks by pressurizing the area and checking for air loss. Use a mandrel to check the duct for any obstructions, which will make sure you have a clear pathway for the cable to travel. Once you have verified the duct’s suitability for installation, you should perform a “crash test” with the fiber blower. You can use a scrap piece of duct and plug to simulate an obstruction in the system. This will make sure the force of the air pressure doesn’t exceed the fiber’s compression capability.

Once you’re ready to install the fiber, attach a cable grip at the end of the line, which will have a swivel and carrier or parachute. You will also need to apply a silicone lubricant directly to the duct opening. After you feed the cable through the tractor drive and air block, you should add more behind the carrier. Once the fiber is in position, the compressed air will be fed into the duct system. When the pressure equalizes, the air will find the “path of least resistance” by applying a push force to the cable carrier. The moving carrier will pull on the cable as it travels through the duct.

Is fiber splicing dangerous?

Most people think about eye damage when it comes to safety in fiber optic installation because of the laser light traveling inside the fiber, but there are other hazards of which you should be aware. The broken ends of fibers and scraps created from the splicing process can be extremely dangerous. The ends are very sharp, so they can easily penetrate your skin. They can break off without your knowledge. They can also be hard to find and remove. Sometimes, a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass will get them out. But most of the time, you will have to wait until the area gets infected so they can work themselves out.

How do I strip OSP fiber?

Peel the small slit section of the tube away and cut both ends. Remove the fibers from what’s left of the split section on the tube. Cut the removed part of the central tube at both ends and discard it. The optical fibers are now exposed and ready for termination.
