For Calculation example
46
Conditions:
Radius=400m
47
Curb length=139.626m
48
Super elevation (R=400)=6% (See Table-1)
49
TR=(1.5%-0%)×Taper rate=1.5%×10m/%=15m
50
SR=(6%-0%)×Taper rate=6%*10m/%=60m
51
When BC is assumed 100, EC becomed 239.626 automatically.
52
(BC+Curb length=100+139.626=239.626)
53
54
The above conditions (TR=15m,SR=60m,Radius=400m,BC=100,EC=239.626 and Super elevation=6%)
