Setback Distance for Multi Lane Road where Ls is greater than Lc
Setback Distance = Radius for Transition Curve-(Radius for Transition Curve-Center Distance between Road and Inner Lane)*cos(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane/2)+((Sight Distance-Length of Transition Curve)/2)*sin(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane/2)
Setback Distance for Single Lane Road where Ls is greater than Lc
Setback Distance = Radius for Transition Curve-Radius for Transition Curve*cos(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane/2)+((Sight Distance-Length of Transition Curve)/2)*sin(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane/2)
Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Multi Lane = (180*Length of Transition Curve)/(pi*(Radius for Transition Curve-Center Distance between Road and Inner Lane))
Length of Transition Curve given Super-Elevation
Length of Transition Curve = Allowable Rate of Super Elevation*Rate of Super Elevation*(Total Widening Needed at Horizontal Curve+Normal Width of Pavement)
Setback Distance where Ls is Smaller than Lc
Setback Distance = Radius for Transition Curve-Radius for Transition Curve*cos(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane/2)
Curve Resistance
Curve Resistance = Tractive Force-Tractive Force*cos(Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane)
Length of Transition Curve given Centrifugal Acceleration
Length of Transition Curve = Velocity^3/(Rate of Change of Centrifugal Acceleration*Radius for Transition Curve)
Rate of Change of Centrifugal Acceleration
Rate of Change of Centrifugal Acceleration = Velocity^3/(Length of Transition Curve*Radius for Transition Curve)
Angle subtended by Radius of Curve for Single Lane = (180*Shift)/(pi*Radius for Transition Curve)
Length of Transition Curve for Steep and Hilly Terrains
Length of Transition Curve = (12.96*Velocity^2)/Radius for Transition Curve
Length of Transition for Curve Plain and Rolling Terrain
