A program is then formulated and the elements required to develop the project is listed.
A topographical analysis is mandatory. Natural factors: Geology 2. Geomorphology — physiography, landforms, soils, drainage, topography and slopes, and soil erosion 3. Hydrology — surface and ground water 4. Vegetation — plant ecology 5.
Wildlife — habitats 6. Climate — solar orientation, wind, and humidity. Existing land use — ownership of adjacent property, off- site nuisances 2. Traffic and transit — vehicular and pedestrian circulation on or adjacent to site 3. Density and zoning — legal and regulatory controls 4.
Socio-economic factors 5.
Utilities — sanitary, storm-water, water supply, power supply, and communications. Aesthetic factors: Natural features 2.
Spatial patterns — spaces and sequences 3. Earth is made up of rocks including soil, sand, silt and dust ; rocks are composed of minerals; minerals are made up of atoms: Igneous Rocks — rocks produced by crystallization from a liquid. Physiography — refers to the description of landforms.
They are derived from volcanic, glacial, or erosional processes. This exercise requires four basic geomorphologic information such as: Soil surveys help guide in site selection for residential, industrial, and other forms of development that involve surface and subsurface structures.
Several features, or properties, are used to describe soil for use in site design. Of these are generally the most meaningful; from them we can make inferences about bearing capacity, internal drainage, erodibility, and slope stability.
Organic Matter varies radically in soils and usually imposes a limitation to any building structure. Organic matter is important only for soil fertility, moisture absorption and retention and for landscaping. Water content varies with particle sizes, local drainage, topography and climate. Most water occupies the spaces between particles; only in organic soils do the particles themselves actually absorb measurable amounts of water.
Air is what occupies remaining space that is not occupied by water. In layers where groundwater is formed by gravity water in the subsoil and underlying rock, there is absence of air. Permeability - the rate at which water within the soil moves through a given volume of material also measured in cm or inches per hour 1. Infiltration - the rate at which water penetrates the soil surface usually measured in cm or inches per hour ; 3.
A rise in the level of groundwater within the soil column; 1. The local accumulation of water ; 3. The size of the particles in the soil being too small to transmit infiltration water.
Contours make it possible to measure the height of mountains, depth of the ocean bottoms, and steepness of slopes. Establish the site boundaries on the map. Make a constructed graduated scale on the edge of a cardboard sheet, representing the distances of each slope pattern using same scale as the topo map. Place the scale on the map see illustration above and mark the edges where the scale matches the distances between contour lines. Color- or hatch-code each area delineated by these edges.
Slopes influence the alignment of modern roads according to class of roads; the higher the class, the lower the maximum grades allowable. Energy for this process is solar and gravitational. Soil Type: Slope Size and Inclination: Slopes that are both steep and long produce the greatest erosion because they generate runoff that is high in velocity and mass.
Frequency and Intensity of Rainfall: Knowledge of watershed boundaries is critical to water quality and storm water management. Climatic control 2. Environmental Engineering 3.
Trees are one of the best controls for solar radiation because: Wind — helps to control temperature. When winds are of low velocity, they may be pleasant, but when velocity increases, may cause discomfort or damage. Trees help to buffer winds in urban areas caused by convection and Venturi effects. Plants help to control precipitation reaching the ground. By intercepting rain and slowing it down, they aid in moisture retention, and in the prevention of soil erosion.

Preview — Site Planning by Kevin Lynch. Site Planning by Kevin Lynch. This new edition of Kevin Lynch's widely used introductory textbook has been completely revised, and is also enriched by the experience of Lynch's coauthor, Gary Hack. For over two decades, "Site Planning" has remained the only comprehensive source of information on all the principal activities and concerns of arranging the outdoor physical environment.
Now, ninety new ill This new edition of Kevin Lynch's widely used introductory textbook has been completely revised, and is also enriched by the experience of Lynch's coauthor, Gary Hack. Now, ninety new illustrations double the visual material, and one hundred pages of new appendices cover special techniques, provide references to more detailed technical sources, and put numerical standards in a concise form.
An introduction summarizes the site planning process. This is followed by a case study of a typical professional project and ten chapters that provide new material on such subjects as user analysis, programming, site planning for built places, housing tenures and their planning implications, cost estimating, mapping, the reading of air photographs, site design for housing in developing countries, design strategies, and environmental impact analyses--all illustrated with photographs and line drawings and with Lynch's characteristic marginal sketches.
