II. Comfort to passengers is an important consideration in the design of summit curves.
The correct option evaluating the above statements and their relationship is

2 / 10

A horizontal circular curve with a centre line radius of 200 m is provided on a 2-lane, 2-way SH section. The width of the 2-lane road is 7.0 m. Design speed for this section is 80 km/h. The brake reaction time is 2.4 s and the coefficients of friction in longitudinal and lateral directions are 0.355 and 0.15, respectively

The safe stopping sight distance on the section (GATE 2008)

A road is provided with a horizontal circular curve having deflection angle of 55° and centre line radius of 250 m. A transition curve is to be provided at each end of the circular curve of such a length that the rate of gain of radial acceleration is 0.3 m/s3 at a speed of 50 km per hour. Length of the transition curve required at each of the ends is________.

On a circular curve, the rate of super-elevation is e. While negotiating the curve a vehicle comes to a stop. It is seen that the stopped vehicle does not slide inwards (in the radial direction). The coefficient of side friction is f. Which of the following is true?

5 / 10

A crest vertical curve joins two gradients of +3% and –2% for a design speed of 80 km/h and the corresponding stopping sight distance of 120 m. The height of driver’s eye and the object above the road surface are 1.2 m and 0.15 m respectively. The curve length (which is less than stopping sight distance) to
be provided is

A horizontal circular curve with a centre line radius of 200 m is provided on a 2-lane, 2-way SH section. The width of the 2-lane road is 7.0 m. Design speed for this section is 80 km/h. The brake reaction time is 2.4 s and the coefficients of friction in longitudinal and lateral directions are 0.355 and 0.15, respectively

The set-back distance from the centre line of the inner lane is

A super speedway in New Delhi has among the highest super-elevation rates of any track on the Indian Grand Prix circuit. The track requires drivers to negotitate turns with a radius of 335 m and 33° banking. Given this information, the coefficient of side friction required in order to allow a vehicle to travel at 320 km/h along the curve is
