  12. 12. 3 Methods of Defining Degree of Curvature1. Radius of curvature; (often in highways) R isselected as a multiple of 100 ft. The smaller R, thesharper the curve.2. Degree of curvature on the chord basis is thecentral angle subtended by a chord of 100 ft.3. Degree of curvature on the arc basis is the centralangle of a circle subtended by an arc of 100 ft.12 20/01/2013

  21. 21. ProblemFor a horizontal circular curve, these data aregiven; the P.I. is at station 64 + 32.2,  is 24 20and an  of 4 00 has been selected. Computethe necessary data and set up the field notes for50-ft stations.21 20/01/2013

  25. 25. As the degree of curvature is between 3 and 7, the curve will be staked out with 50-ft chords. The distance from B.C. (61 + 23.4) to the first 50-ft station (61 + 50) is 26.4 ft and the deflection angle to be used for that point is (26.6/100) (/2) = (26.6/100) (4/2) = 0 31 55. For each of subsequent 50-ft stations from 61 + 50 to 67 + 00, the deflection angles will increase by /4 or 1 00 00. Finally, for the E.C. at station 67 + 31.7, the deflection angle will be 11 32 + (31.7/100) (4/2) = 12 10 00 = /2 as it should.25 20/01/2013

  33. 33. Metric Considerations The full station is 1 km (e.g. 1 + 000), and the stakes are at 50-m, 20-m and 10-m intervals. In field work, the use of  (as opposed to R) allows quick determination of the deflection angle for even stations. In metric system,  would be the central angle subtended by 100 m of arc and the deflection angles would be similarly computed as have done for ft units.33 20/01/2013
  34. 34. Metric Considerations If  = 6, the deflection angles would be as follows: Cross stations (m) Deflection angles 100  /2 = 300 50  /4 = 130 20  /5 = 036 10  /10 = 01834 20/01/2013
  35. 35. Field Procedures to Lay Out A Curve • Extend the two straight lines 1 and 2, to determine the P.I. point of intersection • Measure  (Intersection angle). • Select . • Two or more of these elements should be known or assumed , R, T, E or . • Calculate the stations B.C. = P.I. – T & E.C. = B.C. + L35 20/01/2013
