How to Calculate Length of Valley Curve Greater than Stopping Sight Distance?
Length of Valley Curve Greater than Stopping Sight Distance calculator uses Length of Curve = (Deviation Angle*Sight Distance^2)/(2*Driver Sight Height+2*Sight Distance*tan(Inclination)) to calculate the Length of Curve, The Length of valley curve greater than stopping sight distance formula is defined as the product of the deviation angle and the square of the sight distance divided by twice the driver's eye height, added to two times the sight distance multiplied by the tangent of the inclination angle. Length of Curve is denoted by L_{s} symbol.
How to calculate Length of Valley Curve Greater than Stopping Sight Distance using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Length of Valley Curve Greater than Stopping Sight Distance, enter Deviation Angle (N), Sight Distance (S), Driver Sight Height (h_{1}) & Inclination (α_{angle}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Length of Valley Curve Greater than Stopping Sight Distance calculation can be explained with given input values -> 6.377982 = (0.88*3.56^2)/(2*0.75+2*3.56*tan(0.03490658503988)).
