Superelevation is the banking of a roadway along a horizontal curve so motorists can safely and comfortably maneuver the curve at reasonable speeds. A steeper superelevation rate is required as speeds increase or horizontal curves become tighter. Definitions Side Friction - the friction force between a . Superelevation is the banking of highway horizontal curves to assist the driver by counteracting the lateral acceleration produced by tracking the curve. Superelevation is expressed as a decimal, representing the ratio of the pavement slope to width, and ranging from to Proper superelevation allows a vehicle to safely turn at high speeds and will make riders : Azad Abdulhafedh.

ODOT Highway Design Manual Appendix J - Alignment Guide and Design Aids § Standard Spiral Notes J-7 STANDARD SPIRAL NOTES All curves of one degree or sharper shall be spiraled, using an approximation of the Talbot Spiral based on the arc definition for radius of the curve. Standard lengths for spirals are found. Horizontal alignment of a highway defines its location and orientation in plan-view. It comprises three geometric elements, including tangents (straight sections), circular curves and transition spirals between tangents and curves [2] The vertical alignment (or roadway profile) is theFile Size: KB.

In most countries, two methods of defining circular curves are in use: the first, in general use in railroad work, defines the degree of curve as the central angle subtended by a chord of ft ( m) in length; the second, used in highway work, defines the degree of curve as the central angle subtended by an arc of ft ( m) in length. VERTICAL ALIGNMENT VERTICAL CURVES A vertical curve - is an arc which provides a gradual change between two adjacent grade lines CURVE IS PARABOLIC ONLY!!!

ELEMENTS OF DESIGN 4. Spiral Curves: Spiral curves are not used, except in special cases. For overlay or widening projects, spirals are permitted to remain.

For roadways to be re-constructed, spiral curves are replaced with simple curves, unless existing property improvements or other controls make this impractical. Size: KB.

Horizontal and Vertical Design A primary feature in highway design is the arrangement of the geometric elements so that sufficient sight When a combination of spirals, tangents and/or curves is present, the horizontal sight distance should be determined graphically.It is desirable to avoid vertical and horizontal curves on bridges.

When a horizontal curve is unavoidable on a bridge, spirals and minimum horizontal clearance will be maintained between the roadway and the bridge separation structure.
