Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 3

### The extra width of pavement is provided on

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 3

Extra width of pavement is provided on horizontal curve to avoid the skidding, if the vehicle negotiates the curve then the centrifugal force will act towards outside and there is a chance of skidding, to avoid this extra width is provided.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 4

Transition curve is introduced in

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 4

A transition curve is introduced between horizontal curve and circular curve, the transition curve slowly introduces the centrifugal acceleration to avoid the danger of skidding.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 5

The most important factor that is required for road geometrics is

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 5

The road user characteristics, traffic and vehicular characteristics mostly influence the road geometric design but the most important factor is speed of vehicle.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 6

The design speed of NH on a cross slope of up to 10% is

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 6

The ruling speed up to a cross slope of 10% is 100kmph; it decreases with increase in increase of cross slope.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 7

A part of pavement raised with respect to one side keeping the other side constant is called

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 7

The super elevation is a portion of pavement raised on outer edge with respect to inner edge or both edges raised with respect to centre.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 8

The main purpose of providing camber is

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 8

During rainy season the roads are usually flooded with water so to keep the pavement dry they have to be drained off so the road is provided with a camber.

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 9

The legal axle load of the design vehicle used in India is

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 9

The legal axle load used for design of pavements is 8.2 tonnes; usually they are expressed in MSA (million standard axles).

Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 10

In India the type of traffic assumed to design pavements is

Detailed Solution for Test: Geometric Design of Highways - Question 10

In India generally there is always a mixed traffic flow except during midnight hours and early morning hours, so the designer has to assume mixed traffic flow only.
