Design of Turbo Roundabouts Based on the Rules of Vehicle Movement Geometry

This paper describes a turbo roundabout design procedure based on the rules of design vehicle movement geometry. Previous studies carried out on various junction types have shown that this design approach ensures the usage of optimal roundabout element dimensions as well as safety and comfort during driving. A five-step design procedure is suggested, including a detailed description of relevant influential parameters. They are choosing a design vehicle, implementing the initial roundabout scheme on which the vehicle swept path is analyzed, choosing a method of assigning input parameters for swept path requirements testing procedure, choosing optimal design elements of a standard turbo roundabout, and fastest path vehicle speed analysis.
