Abstract:

A computational method that can be used to calculate cut and fill volumes more accurately than previous methods is proposed. The method is a simple one, and utilizes the primary concepts of the average-end-area formula, and provides additional constraints that should improve the accuracy of the results. The proposed technique applies certain limitations to each type of calculation that is made depending on the configuration (cut and/or fill) of the end areas of the two sections. These limitations involve the definition and location of a theoretical section having zero cross-sectional area.
