Fundamental to establishing bridge geometry and the resulting geometry and dimensions of bridges is the ability to work with roadway geometry provided by highway designers. Terminology used in roadway geometry is discussed. The three primary aspects of roadway geometry (horizontal alignment, vertical profile, and cross section super elevations) are presented in this course. Stationing along horizontal alignments is also defined. Mathematical formulae and graphical representations are presented to define these three primary aspects, along with worked example problems.
In this course you will:
