Give em a good ride… 1. Curves 1°and sharper Use spiral transition Runoff length = spiral length 2. Unspiraled curves 0°55 and sharper Runoff length = normal spiral length 3. Standard spirals cannot be attained Use longest of three solutions Guiding Principles

Spiraled Curves 1° or sharper Use spiral transition Runoff = spiral From: Table 5-3 ODOT Highway Design Manual 2003 English

Non-standard spirals or runoff From: Table 5-3 ODOT Highway Design Manual 2003 English

15
LETL RETL CL Relative Gradient – grade difference/runoff …the length of the superelevation runoff should be based on a maximum acceptable difference between the longitudinal grades of the axis of rotation and the edge of pavement.

16
Relative Gradient – spiral or spiral runoff From my earlier example of a 4°30 curve, 50 mph, with an 8% super, runoff length of 450, and 2-12 lanes rotating about low side ETL:

17
The math AASHTOODOTInRoads XM L r = length of superelevation runoff, ft = maximum relative gradient, % b w = adjustment factor for number of lanes rotated, based upon number of points on template between Pivot and furthest Range Point. D p-e = distance from Pivot to furthest Range Point, ft e d = design superelevation rate, % L s = length of superelevation runoff, ft s = relative slope, % (same as ) W = distance from ETL to ETL, ft e d = design superelevation rate, % L r = minimum length of superelevation runoff, ft max = maximum relative gradient, % n 1 = number of lanes rotated b w = adjustment factor for number of lanes rotated w = width of one traffic lane, ft e d = design superelevation rate, %

21
Relative Gradient – short runoff Example of a 4°30 curve, 50 mph, with an 8% super, runoff length of 192, and 2-12 lanes rotating about low side ETL. Exceeds max. relative gradient!

22
Relative Gradient – short runoff Example of a 4°30 curve, 50 mph, with an 8% super, runoff length of 192, and 2-12 lanes rotating about centerline. w is the distance between the axis of rotation and the edge of pavement (or TL) Rotation about CL reduces gradient!

L r = length of superelevation runoff, ft = maximum relative gradient, % b w = adjustment factor for number of lanes rotated, based upon number of points on template between Pivot and furthest Range Point. D p-e = distance from Pivot to furthest Range Point, ft e d = design superelevation rate, % D p-e b w e d max (1 st dialog) (looked up)
