TRANSITION CURVES ON BENDS

This paper reaffirms the need for spiral transition curves on bends and curves. By considering drivers' perception of bends and rate of gain of centripetal acceleration an optimum value of shift is suggested for spiral transition curves on bends and a maximum value of shift is suggested for spiral transition curves on curves. /Author/TRRL/
