The Number of Dump Trucks Needed to Excavate Soil from a Site

Submitted : Spring 2016

One major thing to consider as a civil engineer is to figure out how to remove unwanted materials from work cites where they want to create something new. An example would be if someone wanted to make a below ground swimming pool. The first step would be to dig a hole. Once they’ve dug a hole they have all this dirt that they need to get rid of. Now the engineer must do some calculations to figure out how many trucks they’ll need to take away the dirt.
