What is Sag correction ?

A tape correction applied to the apparent length of a level base line to counteract the sag in measuring tape (i.e., the difference between the horizontal distance between supports and the length measured along the curve.) The correction due to sag must be calculated separately for each unsupported stretch separately. Hence the correction is taken to be negative.

How to Calculate Sag Correction Between Points of Support?

Sag Correction Between Points of Support calculator uses Sag correction=-(Weight of tape per unit length^2)*(Unsupported length^3)/(24*Pull on Tape^2) to calculate the Sag correction, The Sag Correction Between Points of Support formula is defined as the correction required in an unsupported tape length's sag which forms a catenary between end supports. Sag correction and is denoted by Cs symbol.

How to calculate Sag Correction Between Points of Support using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Sag Correction Between Points of Support, enter Weight of tape per unit length (W), Unsupported length (L) and Pull on Tape (P) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Sag Correction Between Points of Support calculation can be explained with given input values -> -15 = -(3^2)*(10^3)/(24*5^2).

FAQ

What is Sag Correction Between Points of Support?
The Sag Correction Between Points of Support formula is defined as the correction required in an unsupported tape length's sag which forms a catenary between end supports and is represented as Cs=-(W^2)*(L^3)/(24*P^2) or Sag correction=-(Weight of tape per unit length^2)*(Unsupported length^3)/(24*Pull on Tape^2). Weight of tape per unit length of the tape, Unsupported length is the length between the support and Pull on Tape is the tension or pull applied to the tape in newtons (N).
How to calculate Sag Correction Between Points of Support?
The Sag Correction Between Points of Support formula is defined as the correction required in an unsupported tape length's sag which forms a catenary between end supports is calculated using Sag correction=-(Weight of tape per unit length^2)*(Unsupported length^3)/(24*Pull on Tape^2). To calculate Sag Correction Between Points of Support, you need Weight of tape per unit length (W), Unsupported length (L) and Pull on Tape (P). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Weight of tape per unit length, Unsupported length and Pull on Tape and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Sag correction?
In this formula, Sag correction uses Weight of tape per unit length, Unsupported length and Pull on Tape. We can use 1 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Sag correction=((Weight of tape per unit length^2)*(Unsupported length^3))/(24*(Initial tension^2))
