In this exclusive construction video tutorial, the renowned engineer, S.L. Khan will introduce you to a simple cross section in a plan of the abutment and wing walls concerning a bridge or culvert and calculate the quantities of materials for the specified abutment and wing walls.

For this purpose, the calculation should be made on the following items :-

1) Excavation

2) PCC

3) Brickwork under and above the ground level

Initially, it is required to work out the excavation for abutment with the following formula :-

Excavation = Length x Breadth x Depth

After putting all the values, we get the following result.

Excavation = 26 x 4 x 5 = 520 cft

So, excavation required for abutment = 520 cft

Now, it is required to measure the excavation for wing walls with the following formula :-

Excavation = Length x Breadth x Depth x Numbers

After putting all the values, we get the following result.

Excavation = 6 x 4 x 5 x 2 = 240 cft

So, excavation required for abutment = 240 cft

Therefore, total excavation = 520 + 240 = 760 cft

Now, it is necessary to calculate the PCC under the ground level for both abutment and wing walls.

PCC for abutment will calculated as follow :-

PCC = Length of PCC Layer x Breadth x Depth (length of PCC layer = length of abutment)

PCC = 26 x 4 x 2 = 208 cft

Then, the calculation should be made for wing walls as follow :-

PCC = Length x Breadth x Depth x No’s

PCC = 6 x 4 x 2 x 2 = 96 cft

Therefore, total PCC under the ground level = 208 + 96 = 304 cft

To learn the calculation process for the brickwork over and under the ground level, go through the following video tutorial.
