The Anastasi I Papyrus is a NK document which among other things contains calculations for building a massive ramp.
Quote

There is to be constructed a ramp of 730 cubits in length with a width of 55 cubits, containing 120 compartments provided with rushes and beams, having a height of 60 cubits at its summit and 30 cubits at its middle, with a batter of 15 cubits, while its base is of 5 cubits. The amount of bricks required for it is asked of the commander of the workforce.

It is describing a ramp approximately 1254ft long, 95ft wide, and 104ft tall with a slope “percentage angle of slope” of roughly 8 degrees.

All of the ramp talk is quite stupid. The DE used ramps, they had a word for ramp, and as noted many times before there are not only several contemporary examples of ramps found in the OK, including Giza, but also after the fact. The question is did they use ramps to build pyramids which the answer is most certainly yes and no.

The causeways are ramps, which in their pre-finished state were more than likely used to transport Tura limestone and Aswan granite from the Nile. This does not solve for the blocks from the Giza quarries therefore other ramps were used to get from the quarries to the building site. It is also highly likely ramps were used for the first several courses, probably multiple ramps at a time. This is where it goes to shit, however, which most agree other methods were required with ramp designs beyond this point speculative at best.

In Pyramid Construction I note that the core of every exposed pyramid had some form of stepped core in which the outer true pyramid layer was added after the fact. Again:



Every exposed pyramid we see the same form in one way or another over and over again. Meidum was first built as a vertical tower. When we look a the Saqqara pyramid we see that they added vertical accretion layers to a core:


The Meidum tower core was built the same way, but this changed at the time it was converted to a true pyramid which from there after these outer layers were laid horizontally-but they still built around a stepped core. Again, look here:


Whatever ideas one wants to dream up regarding pyrmaid building it has to include both: building a vertical stepped tower core then building the horizontal true pyramid layer. These are two parts to one whole which there is no reason to believe the RP, BP, G1, and G2 were the only ones built any different.

So if you want to solve for this:


You have to solve for this first:
