5.0 Stringline and Subgrade Preparation

5.1 Stingline Preparation

5.1.1 General

Setting stringline requires knowledge of reading and measuring from tack points which have been placed by the surveyor. The principle is consistent throughout but the terminology and conditions could vary.

The importance of proper stringline preparation cannot be over stressed because the concrete placement is relative to the stringline. An improperly prepared stringline could result in poor curb quality and/or improperly placed curb. Operating conditions vary throughout and the method which works well under one condition may not necessarily work as well under different conditions. An evaluation should be made for each condition.

Considerations for placing the stringline:

Minimum and maximum capabilities of the machine.

Clearance for the sensors.

Clearance for the machine on straights and radii.

Clearance for finishing crew between the stringline and the fresh concrete.

"Step over height" of the stringline.

Stability of the sensors. Typically, the further the sensors from the machine, the less stabile.

Job conditions: high banks, low banks, width of the rough grading, stability of the subgrade (for holding stakes), etc.

5.1.2 Stringline Position

For most conditions with concrete height under sixteen (16) inches, Power Curbers recommends:

Six (6) – twelve (12) inches from top-of-curb

Eighteen (18) – twenty four (24) inches from back-of- curb

For most conditions with concrete height sixteen (16) inches and higher, Power Curbers recommends:

Level with top-of-curb

Eighteen (18) inches from back-of-curb

5.1.3 Definition of Terms

5.1.6 Stringline Measurements and Adjustments

See Figure 5.7 Measurement Descriptions.

To set Steering TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE Distance: (Assuming the stringline is above the tack point)

1. Calculate the steering TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE distance which is the TACK POINT OFFSET minus the STEERING OFFSET.

Steering TACK-TO-STRING = TACK OFFSET - STEERING OFFSET

2. Position a four (4) ft. LEVEL vertically on the HUB with the inside edge of the LEVEL aligned with the TACK POINT on the HUB.

3. With the bubble centered on the LEVEL, measure the TACK POINT-to-STRINGLINE distance.

4. Align the stringline slot in the LINE HOLDER ROD

with the correct measurement by sliding the LINE ROD. Tighten L-SCREW securely. See Figure 5.5 Set Steering Offset.

To set grade TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE distance:

(Assuming the stringline is above the tack point)

1. Calculate the grade TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE distance which is the CUT or FILL added to the TOP- OF-CURB to STRINGLINE distance:

Use (-) distance for CUT.

OF-CURB to STRINGLINE distance: Use (-) distance for CUT. Figure 5.5 Set Steering Offset Grade TACK-TO-STRING

Figure 5.5 Set Steering Offset

Grade TACK-TO-STRING = TOP-OF-CURB TO STRING - CUT or

Grade TACK-TO-STRING = TOP-OF-CURB TO STRING + FILL

2. Place one end of the LEVEL ON the TACK POINT and extend the LEVEL out to the slotted end of the LINE HOLDER ROD.

Use (+) distance for FILL.

Use (+) distance for TOP-OF-CURB to STRINGLINE.

3. With the bubble centered on the LEVEL, measure the correct vertical TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE distance.

4. Align the stringline slot in the LINE HOLDER ROD with the correct measurement by adjusting the LINE HOLDER BRACKET on the LINE STAKE and tighten L-SCREW securely. See Figure 5.6 Set Grade Height.

tighten L-SCREW securely. See Figure 5.6 Set Grade Height. Figure 5.6 Set Grade Height 5. Recheck

Figure 5.6 Set Grade Height

5. Recheck horizontal and vertical stringline measurements and adjust as necessary.

6. Repeat the above procedure for all LINE STAKES.

.

5.1.7 Stringline Attachment

1. Pull tension into stringline BEFORE attaching the stringline to the line holder rod slots. Pulling the tension after attaching the stringline could cause misalignment.

a. A tight stringline provides a good reference for pouring straight lines by reducing sag between line stakes and movement by the pressure from the sensor wands.

b. Stringline tension can be checked by pinching the stringline between the thumb and index finger. Push down with the thumb and pull up with the index finger. A maximum of 1/4 in. deflection should occur. Tighten stringline as necessary.

2. Attach stringline into the line holder rod slots: See Figure 5.8 Attach Stringline.

line holder rod slots: See Figure 5.8 Attach Stringline. Figure 5.8 Attach Stringline NOTE: The stringline

Figure 5.8 Attach Stringline

NOTE: The stringline slots cut into the end of the line holder rod are not parallel to the stringline. This helps ensure that the stringline will not pop out of the slot. To aid insertion, twist the stringline with your hand to match the slot angle.

3. Visually check the alignment of the stringline and make any necessary adjustments.

4. Check the stringline with a LEVEL to be sure the water will run the correct direction and no puddling could occur. Any questionable TACK POINTS should be resolved before fine grading or pouring concrete. DO NOT assume each TACK POINT is exactly correct. See Figure 5.9 Check Stringline.

TACK POINT is exactly correct. See Figure 5.9 Check Stringline. Figure 5.9 Check Stringline Power Curbers

Figure 5.9 Check Stringline

5.1.8 Stringline Setting - Radii

1. Set line and tie-off stakes:

a).

Drive a LINE STAKE straight into the ground at each TANGENT POINT of the radius.

i. LINE STAKES at the TANGENT POINTS should be twelve (12) in. behind the actual stringline Position to allow for adjustment.

ii. LINE STAKES at the TANGENT POINTS should be aligned with each TACK POINT to obtain accurate measurements from the TACK POINT to the STRINGLINE.

b)

Drive a TIE-OFF STAKE angled away and three (3) to five (5) ft. from each TANGENT POINT. See Figure 5.10 Line and Tie-Off Stakes.

i. TIE-OFF STAKES should be in line with the LINE STAKES.

i. TIE-OFF STAKES should be in line with the LINE STAKES. Figure 5.10 Line and Tie-Off

Figure 5.10 Line and Tie-Off Stakes

c) Assemble and adjust stringline holders at each TANGENT POINT as described in STRINGLINE MEASUREMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS.

d) Pull a measuring tape from the TACK POINT to the TANGENT POINT LINE STAKE.

e) Hold a LINE STAKE at the correct distance and scratch a line around the radius between each TANGENT POINT. The line will serve as a guide to place LINE STAKES around the radius. See Figure 5.11 Mark Stake Radius.

around the radius. See Figure 5.11 Mark Stake Radius. Figure 5.11 Mark Stake Radius 2. Set

Figure 5.11 Mark Stake Radius

2. Set radius stakes.

a. Drive LINE STAKES equally apart around the radius as shown in Figure 5.12 Radius Line Stakes.

the radius as shown in Figure 5.12 Radius Line Stakes. Figure 5.12 Radius Line Stakes i.

Figure 5.12 Radius Line Stakes

i. A RULE-OF-THUMB for setting radii LINE STAKES:

Ten (10) FEET of radius equals one (1) FOOT between LINE STAKES.

Example 1:

(10) ft. R. = (1) ft. between LINE STAKES

Example 2:

(15) ft. R. = (1.5) ft. or (18) in. between LINE STAKES.

b. Secure one (1) end of the stringline to the top of one (1) TIE-OFF STAKE.

c. Pull the stringline behind the radius and secure to the other TIE OFF STAKE. See Figure 5.13 Reference Line.

to the other TIE OFF STAKE. See Figure 5.13 Reference Line. Figure 5.13 Reference Line d.

Figure 5.13 Reference Line

d. Attach the stringline to the line holder rod slots.

e. Adjust stringline tension as required so as not to disturb radius line stakes.

3. Set steering offset.

a. Assemble the LINE HOLDER RODS and BRACKETS as described in STRINGLINE COMPONENT ASSEMBLY.

b. Hold one (1) end of a measuring tape on the RADIUS TACK POINT and measure out to TACK POINT-TO-STRINGLINE distance.

c. Adjust each LINE ROD to the correct distance and secure the L-SCREW as shown in Figure 5.14 Set Steering Offset.

the L-SCREW as shown in Figure 5.14 Set Steering Offset. Figure 5.14 Set Steering Offset 4.

Figure 5.14 Set Steering Offset

4. Set grade height.

a. Using the stringline as a visual guide, adjust the LINE HOLDER BRACKETS to the elevation of the rear stringline.

b. Loosen the rear stringline, pull a small amount of tension around the front of the LINE STAKES, and secure the stringline at the TIE-OFF STAKE.

NOTE:

Radii do not require as much stringline tension as straights because the LINE STAKES are closer.

c. Attach the stringline as described in Section 5.1.7 STRINGLINE ATTACHMENT. See Figure 5.15 Radius Stringline.

STRINGLINE ATTACHMENT. See Figure 5.15 Radius Stringline. Figure 5.15 Radius Stringline d. Visually check the ali

Figure 5.15 Radius Stringline

d. Visually check the alignment of the stringline and make any necessary adjustments.

e. Be sure the water will run the correct direction and no puddling occurs in the radius. Resolve any questionable alignments before trimming or pouring concrete.

5.1.9 Tie-Off Procedure

TIE-OFFS are the beginning and/or ending of a particular section of stringline. A TIE-OFF should be performed:

1. At least every 500 ft. on straight sections.

Advantages:

a. Maintains proper stringline tension.

b. Stringline can be removed after passing a TIE-OFF and reset at another location while resuming pouring.

c. Disruptions such as breaks will affect only a particular section.

2. At each tangent point of a radius less than 100 ft.

Advantages:

a. Radii do not require as much stringline tension as straights.

b. Pulling too much tension in a radius could cause line stakes and/or line holder rods to misalign.

c. The proper tension for a straight can not be obtained by pulling the stringline through a radius.

To set a TIE-OFF:

1. Drive a tie-off stake on each side of the line stake designated for the TIE-OFF location.

a. The tie-off stakes should be in line, angled away,

and five (5) ft. from the line stake as shown in Figure

5.16.

five (5) ft. from the line stake as shown in Figure 5.16. Figure 5.16 Stringline Tie-Off

Figure 5.16 Stringline Tie-Off

b. Be sure the tops of the tie-off stakes are at least six (6) inches higher than the stringline.

2. Pull the stringline around the line stake and secure to the tie-off stake above the STRINGLINE HEIGHT with the proper tension.

3. Secure the stringline to the other tie-off stake above the STRINGLINE HEIGHT, pull around the front of the line intake, under the previous string line, and secure at the other end of the section with the proper tension.

a. IMPORTANT: Securing the string line to the tie- off stake above the STRINGLINE HEIGHT allows the grade sensor wands to pass a TIE-OFF without becoming wedged between the string line and tie-off.

b. Placing the second string line under the first could allow easier removal of the first string line as required.

4. Place the crossed string line in the line holder rod slot.

NOTE: It may be necessary to secure both string lines into the line holder rod slot using bailing wire, tape, or some other suitable method.

5. Recheck the string line distances from the tack point and adjust as necessary.

5.2 Subgrade Preparation

Definition of terms:

Subgrade: The material on which the concrete will be placed.

Fine Grade: The surface prepared for the trimming and pouring operation. The preparation of the surface for the trimming and pouring operation.

Finish Grade: The surface prepared by the trimmer, in which the concrete is placed. The preparation of the surface for placement of the concrete.

The subgrade should be prepared in relation to the stringline and fine grading should be performed after the stringline is set.

The SUBGRADE HEIGHT should be checked prior to trimming and/or pouring concrete and in plenty of time to make adjustments to the fine grade if necessary.

The SUBGRADE HEIGHT should be checked at the back-of- curb and toe-of curb.

The subgrade on which the machine runs while pouring should be fine graded also to insure no sharp variations and no bottoming of the suspension. The suspension height should be checked prior to fine grading to measure the amount of subgrade variation the machine could allow.

To check the SUSPENSION HEIGHT:

1.

Be sure the trimmer and slope is properly adjusted. See Section 7 Operation Instructions.

The subgrade should be fine graded within one (1) to two (2) inches HIGH.

2. Position the machine on a hard level surface with the trimmer and mold lightly touching the surface.

3. Measure the inner post extension from the bottom edge of the outer post to the top of the crawler yoke. The measurement will be the maximum amount of high grade variation from the final grade of the curb to the machine operating grade.

NOTE: Power Curbers recommends operating with a minimum post extension of four (4) in. and a maximum post extension of twelve (12) in.

To check the SUBGRADE HEIGHT:

See Figure 5.17 Check Grade Height.

1. Calculate the BASE-OF-CURB to STRINGLINE distance as shown in Figure 5.7 Measurement Descriptions.

a. Measure CURB HEIGHT: The distance from the base-of-curb to the top-of-curb of the mold on the machine.

b. Recall TOP-OF-CURB TO STRINGLINE distance used in setting the stringline. (See Section 5.1 Stringline Preparation)

c. The CURB HEIGHT added to TOP-OF-CURB TO STRINGLINE distance will be called BASE-OF- CURB TO STRINGLINE.

2. Use a 4' level and an engineer's rule to measure the distance from the STRINGLINE to the SUBGRADE.

a. If the distance is less than BASE-OF-CURB TO STRINGLINE, the subgrade is HIGH (high grade).

b. If the distance is greater than BASE-OF-CURB TO STRINGLINE, the subgrade is LOW (low grade). This condition is not advisable. Fill and compact LOW areas within (1) to (2) inches HIGH before trimming and/or pouring.

The subgrade should be slightly HIGH. One (1) to two (2) inches is acceptable for most conditions. In most curbing operations, higher subgrade results in slower pouring speeds and possible suspension bottoming (bottoming out) but some trimming is essential for proper grade-to-curb match up. The subgrade should not be LOW, which could result in poor curb quality, spill out, and poor concrete yield.

The subgrade height should be prepared consistently. Variations between low grade and high grade could result in poor concrete quality.

Be sure the surface the machine runs on is stabile and follows the finish grade.

the machine runs on is stabile and follows the finish grade. Figure 5.17 Check Grade Height
