There are situations where we need to create superelevation for a roadway deflection angle that doesn't require a curve. In addition, there are situations where the slope control benefits of tangent only superelevation come in extremely handy. Today's post shows the process for creating this type of superelevation.
Check out the video below to see Part 5 of my series on all things superelevation.
If you'd like to see this workflow used in an intersection design example, please take a look at my co-blogger's (Jeff Bartels) playlist on advanced intersection modeling: Advanced Intersection Modeling. I highly recommend the entire playlist, but if you can't wait, Part 5 is where Jeff shows using tangent only superelevation to flatten lane slopes approaching an intersection.
