Different Types of Surveying Chains

 

Following are the various types of chain in common use:

 

1.     Metric chains

2.     Steel band or Band chain

3.     Gunter's chain or surveyors chain

4.     Engineers chain

5.     Revenue chain

 

1.  Metric Chain:

 

·        Metric chains are made in lengths 20m and 30m. Tallies are fixed at every five-meter length and brass rings are provided at every meter length except where tallies are attached.

 

2.  Gunter’s Chain

 

·        Length = 66’ (22 yards), No of links = 100, Each link = .66’

 

·        Used for measuring distances in miles or furlongs (220 yards), acres (Area).

 

3.  Engineer’s Chain

 

·        Length = 100’, No of links = 100, Each link = 1’

 

·        Used in all Engineering Surveys.

 

4.  Revenue Chain

 

·        Length = 33’, No of links = 16

 

·        Commonly used for measuring fields in cadastral Survey.

 

Types of Measuring Tapes in Surveying

 

Tapes are made of different materials:

 

1. Cloth or linen tape

 

•        Used for subsidiary measurements

•        Very light, easy to handle

•        May effect by moisture

 

2. Metric steel tape

 

•        Made of steel 

 

•        Outer end is provided with a ring for holding

 

3. Invar tape

 

•        Used for high precision work

•        Made of alloy steel

 

4. Synthetic tape

 

•        Made of glass fiber with PVC coating

•        These are used for short measurements
