Description
The purpose of this course is to present the basic engineering necessary to lay out roads and drives in the landscape. In order to create safe, enjoyable, and easily maneuverable vehicular circulation, roads must be engineered in both the horizontal and vertical planes. In this course you will receive information, examples with solutions, and opportunities to test your retention of the material presented. We will review basic components of road alignment and definitions of circular curve elements. You will get step-by-step processes and road alignment procedure. We will examine various approaches to design and practice making calculations using proven formulas.
