Mass and Haul Diagram
HAUL : product of earth excavated and the distance it was transported to form an embankment or to be disposed as waste. unit: meter – station (metric) = 1 m3 to be transported FREE HAUL DISTANCE (FHD) : fixed distance within which the hauling of material is not paid for but it is assumed to be included in the cost of excavation. OVERHAUL (OH) : product of volume in excess of the free haul mass and the length of overhaul in which payment is already required. LENGTH OF OVERHAUL (LOH) : distance between the center of gravity of mass excavation beyond the free haul mass and the center of gravity of the resulting embankment.
