SURVEYING AND CALCULATION OF CURVED TRACK, USING ANGLE CONFIGURATION CO-ORDINATES

The method described for surveying and calculation of curved track with the aid of angle configuration coordinates is not inferior to values calculated on the strength of normal coordinates and has the following advantages: Less mathematical effort compared with polar marking and surveyings; work can be carried out with instruments currently available (measuring tapes and theodolites); application of calculators with the well known angle- Configuration method. The formulas which apparently are complicated can be derived without major effort from the calculation sketch for each individual case.
