Specifying a Vertical Sag Curve for a Roadway

by Kaiwen Chen


Submitted : Fall 2012

A road is to be built down the left hill and up the right hill, the road to be graded so that if follows the smooth parabolic curve from x_1 to x_2. Then give the L=x_2-x_1=Gv^2/1296a, where G=9 v=90km/hr, a=0.05g. Find the A,B,C,X_1?X_2 and the volume of the space.
