The first is where the sight distance is determined to be less than the curve length. The second is where the sight distance exceeds the curve length. Each scenario has a respective formula that produces sight distance based on geometric properties. Determining which scenario is the correct one often requires testing both to find out which is true. Given a certain sight distance S and a known curve length L and inner lane centerline radius Rv, the distance a sight obstraction can be from the interior edge of the road, Ms can be computed in the following formulas.

Examples

Example 1: Curve Radius

Problem: A curving roadway has a design speed of 110 km/hr. At one horizontal curve, the superelevation has been set at 6.0% and the coefficient of side friction is found to be 0.10. Determine the minimum radius of the curve that will provide safe vehicle operation.

Solution:

Problem:

A horizontal curve is designed with a 600 m radius and is known to have a tangent length of 52 m. The PI is at station 200+00. Determine the stationing of the PT.

Solution:

Problem: A very long horizontal curve on a one-directional racetrack has 1750-meter centerline radius, two 4-meter lanes, and a 200 km/hr design speed. Determine the closest distance from the inside edge of the track that spectators can park without impeding the necessary sight distance of the drivers. Assume that the sight distance is less than the length of the curve, a coefficient of friction of 0.3, and a perception-reaction time of 2.5 seconds.

Solution: With a centerline radius of 1750 meters, the centerline of the interior lane is 1748 meters from the vertex (1750 - (4/2)). Using the stopping sight distance formula (See Sight Distance), SSD is computed to be 664 meters. With this, the distance from the track that spectators can be parked can easily be found.

Thought Question

Problem Horizontal curves are semicircles, as to allow the driver to negotiate the curve without having to change the tilt of the wheel while passing through. However, what happens at the PC or PT, where tangent road transitions to a curve or vice versa. Is the driver expected to abruptly turn the wheel to match the curve or tangent? Solution Generally not. Engineers employ several techniques to allow drivers to gradually turn the wheel as they enter or leave the curve. One of the more popular ways is to use Splines. Splines are polynomial curves that have changing rates of curvature. Employed at the PC and PT, Splines take away any sharp changes for the drivers and make the drive a more pleasant one.

Sample Problem

Problem (Solution)

Variables

R - Centerline Curve Radius Da - Degree of curve [angle subtended by a 30.5-m (100 ft) arc along the horizontal curve T - tangent length (in length units) - central angle of the curve, in degrees E - Smallest distance between the curve and PI M - Middle ordinate L - Curve Length C - Cord Length S - Sight Distance Ms - Acceptable distance from inner edge of road for a sight obstruction to be placed without impeding sight distance Rv - Radius of innermost lane centerline

Key Terms

PC: Point of Curve PI: Point of Tangent Intersect PT: Point of Tangent
