cables laid direct in ground or ducting in ground = D

I think it has changed as the 16th was numbers ,not letters, i have a photocopy of some of the sheets, but it does not refer to this scenario

Cables in enclosed trenches under the 16th were either method 18, 19 or 20 depending on the size of the trench I believe. Any idea of the depth of the trench?

Hi thanks for the reply, the trench was over 18inches deep and contained a lot of cables, these were the main feeds to generators,and from the sub to the building, all laid in sand .all single core AWA cables. As for the cables in the ducting, any ideas on that ref method ?

You were answered straight away!!, cables in a duct!!!, can't you use the regs like??? its all there.

I find it funny that someone has test sheets sat, and they feel they can't finalise them without something as pathetic as that, which they need to go to a forum for an answer for!!!!!!!!

And if thats not bad enough they don't accept the answer!!!

Honestly some people ey!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get a paper round mate

1. test sheets cover 36 distribution boards, have been testing/remedial work on them since february.

2. answer was given, but in the question it clearly states to the 16th edition, answer was to the 17th

3. sad enough to go to the IEE forum to ask the simple question yes, any help not really

4. no time for paper round to busy doing REAL work sorry mate you will just have to get of your ***** and go to the shop
