where h is the superelevation of debris flow, a is the function of the slope, v is the mean velocity of the debris flow, and g is the gravitational acceleration.
where: v--train speed in the curve, km/h; [phi]--superelevation angle; g--gravitational acceleration, m/[s.sup.2]; R--curve radius, m; 2 x [b.sub.0]--the distance between rail axes m; h--actual superelevation, mm.
At 261 kg without weapon and ammunition, the Ucok features an independent sight elevation that allows both superelevation when using the AGL as well as non-threatening posture in PS0s, the weapon being raised at 70[degrees].
In particular, we assigned some deviations (rad) from the nominal (mid) values of superelevation (e), deflection angle ([alpha]) and time employed to cover input variables of residual circumference ([t.sub.cir]).
Many factors were found to affect the operating speed, such as, radius of horizontal curve or curvature change rate, grade, length of horizontal curve, deflection angle, sight distance, superelevation rate, side friction factor, and pavement conditions (Boscaino, Pratico 2001; Pratico et al.
System electronics then calculate superelevation and lateral adjustments and move the aiming point to the required aim-off point for the user.
Related physical factors, such as lane width, superelevation, and road surface friction characteristics are also involved.
Presumably, this is due to the 3D features that are ignored by the 2D approach such as the effect of superelevation on the geometry, the existence of other near vertical curves, or the overlapping with a crest vertical curve.
This paper analyzes and revises the existing SSD calculation model which is based on driving at straight section, not considering the influence of curve and cross slope variation such as superelevation. Therefore, through refining the physical calculation model with consideration of the influence of driving at curve section, a more reasonable formula of SSD calculation is presented.
Although reconstruction projects to flatten curves or correct pavement deficiencies such as superelevation are beyond the scope of the guide, there are a variety of low-cost physical changes discussed that can improve roadway departure safety.
