- 2. Mainly 2 components Gradient Ruling Exceptional Limiting Vertical Curves Summit Curves Valley Curves
- 3. Effects of Gradient Resistance to the vehicles Grade resistance Grade Compensation According to IRC (30+R)/R % Maximum Compensation = 75/R % Not required on flat gradients i.e., < 4%
- 4. Vertical Curves – Summit Curve
- 5. Shape of Summit Curve Circular Equal Sight distance at all points Most Ideal Parabola Good riding comfort Calculation of ordinates Laying out on ground Most preferred For small deviation angles above shapes doesn’t make substantial difference
- 6. Design Parameters for Length Sight Distance Stopping Sight Distance Overtaking Sight Distance Centrifugal Force Acts Upwards Counteracted by weight of vehicle
- 7. Summit Curve – S < L
- 8. Y = ax a = N/2L h1 = aS12 h2 = aS22 S1 = √h1/a S1 = √h2/a S = h1+h2 L = NS2/2(√h1+√h2)2

- 11. Valley curves - types
- 12. Design Parameters Daytime – No Problem SD reduces at night SSD under head lights CF acts downwards W acts downwards From the above Impact free movement of vehicles Availability of SSD Transition curves – for safely introducing C.F (P) Cubic Parabola shape is preferred
- 13. Length 2 transition curves of equal length Y = bX3 b= 2N/3L2 Allowable rate of change of acceleration = 0.6m/s2 Adequate sight distance
- 14. Length - Based on C.F Acceleration C = ((v2 /R) – 0) /t t = Ls/v From the above Ls = v3 / cR But for Cubic Parabola, R = Ls/N Hence, Ls = √(Nv3 /c) Required L = 2Ls N – deviation angle in radian, c = c.f acceleration, v = m/s
- 15. Based on SD = SD <L
- 16. Length – SD < L Available SD is minimum at Lowest Point Also it is start of transition curve In the above Formula, h1 = height of headlight beam (0.75m) α = head beam inclination in degrees (approx 1 degree) S = Sight dist
- 17. Length - SD > L
- 18. Length - SD > L Beginning and Ending Points of the curve SD Varies in both Cases SD calculated assuming vehicle is at beginning of the curve.

When friction factor is f (A) e f ≤ (B) e f ≥ (C) e f = (D) Cannot be determined Which of these statements is false? (1) Plumb line is along direction of gravity (2) Mean Sea Level in reference surface for establishing horizontal control (3) Mean Sea Level is simplification of geoid (4) Geoid is an equi potential surface of gravity
- 20. For a portion of highway descending gradient 1 in 25 meets an ascending gradient 1 in 20. A valley curve needs to be designed at a velocity of 90 kmph based on (i) Head light sight distance equal to stopping sight distance of a level terrain. Consider length of curve > SSD (ii) Comfort condition if rate of change of acceleration is 3 0.5 m / s Reaction time = 2.5 sec, coefficient of longitudinal friction µ = 0.35. Height of head light = 0.75 m, and beam angle o = 1 48. What is the length of valley curve as per headlight sight distance? What is the length of valley curve (in meter) based on comfort condition?

A vertical summit curve is formed by n1 = +3.0% and n2 = −5.0%. Design the length of the summit curve for V=80 kmph. 3. n1 = +1/50 and n2 = −1/80, SSD=180m, OSD=640m. Due to site constraints, L is limited to 500m. Calculate the length of summit curve to meet SSD, ISD and OSD. Discuss results. 1. c=0.6 m/cm3 , SSD=127.3m), L=max(73.1,199.5) 2.
