REVIEW OF HIGHWAY CURVE DESIGN

THE PRESENT POSITION OF DESIGN OF HIGHWAY ALIGNMENT, BOTH HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL, IS REVIEWED. PARTICULAR ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THE FORM OF TRANSITION CURVES, THE RUN-UP OF SUPER RELEVATION, AND THE CORRELATION OF THESE TWO ASPECTS OF DESIGN, AS REGARDS BOTH ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS AND APPEARANCE. THE CASE OF INTERCHANGE LOOPS, WHERE DECELERATION IS EXPECTED TO TAKE PLACE WITHIN THE LIMITS OF A CURVE, OFTEN TO MINIMUM STANDARDS, IS DISCUSSED AS BEING ESPECIALLY CRITICAL. /AUTHOR/
