Transition Curve Deflection Angle – Necessary for Passenger Safety
Use this online calculator to know how to use spiral curve to gradually change the curvature and super elevation of road and this is also known as transition curve.
To calculate Transition Curve Deflection Angle:
Results:
Formula:
i = L² / ( 6×R×L_{s})
Where,
i - Tangent deflection angle to any point on the curve
L - Length of spiral from tangent to any point
L_{s} - Length of spiral
R - Radius of Simple Curve
