Geometry of Circular Curves

- Notable aspects of circle geometry
- Designation of Horizontal Curves

Degree of Curvature

- Arc definition (Da)
- Central angle subtended by 100 feet of arc (along

curve)

- Note 100' ? one full station

Degree of Curvature cont.

- Chord definition
- Units

Relationship of Da and R

- Metric equivalents by conversion, e.g.

Curve Relationships

- Note
- Top five equations can be English or metric units

Example Curve Calculations

- Given
- Deflection angle at PI (?) 8 24'
- Station of PI 64 27.64
- Da specified as 2 00'
- Compute
- Curve components
- Stations of PC and PT

Derive Curve Components

Derive Stations of PC and PT

- Station of PI 64 27.64
- Station of PC Station of PI T
- (64 27.64) (2 10.38) 62 17.08
- Station of PT Station of PC L (distance

along curve) - (62 17.08) (4 20.00) 66 17.08

Selection (Design) of Curve

- Issue
- Design basis

Layout of Circular Curves

- Issue
- Angle-distance technique
- Note

Sight Distance on Horizontal Curves

- Issue
- Standards
- Set by American Association of State Highway and

Transportation Officials (AASHTO)

Example of Using SSD

- Consider
- Curve with R 1909.86 ft
- Sight obstruction (e.g. building) 12 ft from

curve (M 12 ft) - Question
- Recall car going 60 mph needs SSD of 475 ft
- Does curve have enough SSD for a car going 60 mph?

LC ?

R 1909.86'

- Available sight distance 428' Required SSD60

475' - Not enough sight distance for 60 mph
- Post lower speed limit or redesign curve
