Geocache Description:

Slēpnis ir neliela pārtikas kārba, kura atrašanai būs nepieciešams vispirms apmeklēt kādu caurteku un tur veikt dažus mērījumus, kā arī atrast kādu vēsturisku datumu.

ENG To find this normal size food box cache you will need to visit a culvert and take there on place some measurements, as well to find a historical date.


Dotajās koordinātēs atradīsi kādu diezgan senu un labi saglabājušos caurteku, kas būvēta līdz ar dzelzceļa atzara Rīga-Pleskava izveidi. To ir veikuši lieliski inženieri un citi sava aroda meistari. Piedāvājam arī Tev šeit veikt dažus mērījumus, lai šo būvi iepazītu nedaudz rūpīgāk. Iegūtās vērtības noderēs, lai atrastu slēpni.

Caurplūdumu caurtekai pēc Colebrook-White formulas mēs šoreiz nerēķināsim. :)

Veiksim vienkāršākus mērījumus un aprēķinus. Visu rēķinām pilnos metros.

A - Caurtekas garums (Tikai pati caurteka, nevis uzbēruma stiprinājumi)

B - Caurtekas augstums (Tikai pats „caurums” no ūdens līmeņa, nevis viss būves augstums)

C – kiegeļu horizontālo rindu skaits caurtekas arkā

D - datums, kurā 1889. gadā atklāja dzelzceļa līniju Rīga-Pleskava - viens no cipariem 

X = C+5*A+6*B+17

Y = 3*C+6*A+7*B+3*D+20

Konteiners atrodas:

57 33.X

25 3D.Y

 Atgādinām, ka atrašanās uz un staigāšana pa sliežu ceļiem ir bīstama. Tāpat kā dzīve.

 

ENG

ENG In given coordinates you will find a pretty old and well-preserved culvert, built in years when the railway branch Riga-Pskov was established. It has made great engineers and other masters of their profession. We also offer you here to take some measurements of this construction. The values obtained will be useful to find the final location of the cache.

This time you don’t need to calculate the flow rate of this culvert using the Colebrook-White formula. :)

Some easier measurements and calculations here. Everything is to be calculated rounding to the nearest full meter.

A – Length of the Culvert (Only culvert itself, not the embankment fastening construction outside of the culvert)

 

B – Height of the Culvert (Only the "hole" from the water level, not the entire construction height)

C - the number of horizontal rows of bricks in the culvert’s arch

D - the date on which in 1889 the railway line Riga-Pskov was opened 22 - one of the digits

X = C+5*A+6*B+17

Y = 3*C+6*A+7*B+3*D+20

The final location:

57 33.X

25 3D.Y

We remind you that to be on and walk along the railway tracks is dangerous. Like the life it selves.
