- PC = Point of Curvature
- PT = Point of Tangency
- PI = Point of Intercept
- 100/D = L/Î”, so,
- L = 100 (Î” /D) where:
- L = arc length(measured in Stations (1 Sta = 100 ft)
- Î” = internal angle (deflection angle)
- D = 5729.58/R
- M = middle ordinate m=R [1 â€“ cos(Î” /2) ]
M - is maximum distance from curve to long chord

Degree of curvature: D = central angle which subtends an arc of 100 feet

D=5729.58/R where R â€“ radius of curve

For R=1000 ft. D = 5.73 degrees

Maximum degree of curve/min radius:

Dmax = 85,660 (e + f)/V2 or

Rmin = V2/[15 (e + f)]

1) Sight line is a chord of the circular curve

2) Applicable Minimum Stopping Sight Distance (MSSD) measured along centerline of inside lane

Criterion: no obstruction

within middle ordinate

Assume:

driver eye height = 3.5 ft

object height = 2.0 ft.

Note: results in line of sight obstruction height at middle ordinate of 2.75 ft

- Basic controlling expression:
e + f = V2/15R

- Example:
- A horizontal curve has the following characteristics: Î” = 45Ëš, L = 1200 ft, e = 0.06 ft/ft. What coefficient of side friction would be required by a vehicle traveling at 70 mph?

- PC = Point of Curvature
- PT = Point of Tangency
- PI = Point of Intercept
- 100/D = L/Î”, so,
- L = 100 (Î” /D) where:
- L = arc length(measured in Stations (1 Sta = 100 ft)
- Î” = internal angle (deflection angle)
- D = 5729.58/R
- M = middle ordinate m=R [1 â€“ cos(Î” /2) ]
M - is maximum distance from curve to long chord

- Involve complex geometry
- Require more surveying
- Are somewhat empirical
- If used, superelevation transition should occur entirely within spiral
