Question

A vertical curve is needed to connect an entry grade of ‐2.4% to an exit grade of +1.5%. The PVI of the two grades is at station 33 + 75 and elevation of 540 m above the datum level. The elevation at station 34 + 40 must be 541 m above the datum level in order to Accommodate a street, which crosses the road. Determine; ( According to TRH17)

i. The length of the curve. ii. The elevation and station of the BVC, EVC and the lowest point.

Answer #1

L =327.6 m

Location of low point is =160.45 m.

if helpful then pls give ?.

thank you.

Problem #4: Vertical curve
A vertical curve is define by gradient lines. The gradient of
the back tangent is +4.2% and the
gradient of the forward tangent is -3.75%. The BVC station is at
45+00 and has an elevation of
215.00 feet. For a vertical curve with a length of 12 stations,
determine the following:
a. The station and elevation of the PVI.
b. The station and elevation of the EVC.
c. The elevation of the vertical curve at station...

A vertical curve has an incoming grade of +4.4% and an exit
grade of -2.2%. The length of the curve is 450.00 ft. The
intersection of the grades is at 10+00 and the elevation at that
point is 440.00.
Compute the elevation of the +00 points on the curve. Then
determine the location and elevation of the highest point on the
curve. If there is an existing bridge at this location over the
proposed road, and the elevation of its...

A 3.0% grade passing at station 20+00.00 at an elevation of
99.10 m meets a -2.0% grade passing at station 20+50.00 at an
elevation of 99.60 m. Please note that these two elevations and
stations DO NOT correspond to BVC and EVC.
a) Determine the station and elevation of the point of
intersection of the two grades.
b) If the highest point on the curve must lie at station
20+55.00, find the elevation of this point and the length of...

.A crest vertical curve joining a +3 percent and a-4 percent
grade is to be designed for 40 Km/h. If the tangents intersect at
station (K20+ 60.00) at an elevation of 200 m, determine the
stations and elevations of the BVC and EVC. Also, calculate the
elevations of intermediate points on the curve at the whole
stations.

A vertical parabolic sag curve of Lapulapu underpass has grade
of -4% followed by a grade of +2% intersecting at station 12+150.80
at elevation 124.80 m. above sea level. The change of grade of the
sag curve is restricted to 6%.
Compute the length of curve.
Compute the elevation of the lowest point of the curve.
Compute the elevation at station 12+125.60

A vertical parabolic curve is to connect a back tangent of -3%
and a forward tangent of +4%. The change of grade is 0.60% per 20 m
station. The stationing of PC is 17+428 with an elevation of 200 m.
Compute the:
a) length of the parabolic curve;
b) stationing of PT (format: 00+000.00);
c) elevation of PT;
d) elevation of the lowest point of the curve;
e) elevation at Station 17+544.67.

A crest vertical curve joining a +3 percent and a -4 percent
grade is to be designed with a length of 2184 ft and the Station of
BVC is ( 334 + 68) at an elevation of 217.24 ft. The distance from
BVC at station (339 + :00) is

A new road need to be constructed to connect Jalan Ampang and
Jalan Tun Razak. After a
thorough study by an engineer, it is found that, the equal tangent
vertical curve has to be
designed with initial grade of 3% and final grade of 1%. Due to an
intersection with an existing
roadway, this new roadway at station 350+650 must be at an
elevation of 164 m in order to
provide sufficient headroom for heavy vehicles. Given station PVI
is...

An
existing equal-tangent sag vertical curve is designed for 60 mi/h.
The initial grade is -3% and the elevation of the PVT is 754 ft.
The PVC of the curve is at station 134 + 16 and the PVI is at 137 +
32. An overpass is being constructed directly above the PVI. The
highway is for cars only (AASHTO minimum and recommended structure
clearances do not apply) and the overpass design assumes the
driver's eye height is set conservatively...
