Geometric design consistency on high-speed rural two-lane roadways Wooldridge, Mark D et al

By: Wooldridge, Mark DPublication details: Washington DC National Cooperative Highway Research Program, 2003; NCHRP report 502, Description: 92 s, 802 kBISBN: 0309087686Subject(s): USA | Geometric design | Rural road | Alignment | Vertical | Horizontal | Visibility distance | Cross section | Traffic lane | Climbing lane | Design speed | Degree of curvature | Mathematical model | 31Online resources: Publikation/Publication Bibl.nr: VTI P0409:502Location: Abstract: This report discusses geometric design consistency, particularly for rural roads. It presents rules on geometric design consistency suitable for use in an expert system such as the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM). The rules can also be used directly by a designer to evaluate roadway designs or to conduct reviews of existing roadways, improving design consistency and safety.

This report discusses geometric design consistency, particularly for rural roads. It presents rules on geometric design consistency suitable for use in an expert system such as the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM). The rules can also be used directly by a designer to evaluate roadway designs or to conduct reviews of existing roadways, improving design consistency and safety.
