Maximum And Minimum Superelevation As Per I.R.C
When a vehicle is moving on a curved path it is subject to an outward force known as centrifugal force. In order to counteract the effect of centrifugal force, the outer edge of the pavement is raised with respect to the inner edge. This transverse inclination provided to the pavement surface is known as superelevation
Maximum Superelevation
As per IRC, the maximum superelevation in plain and rolling terrain and in the snowbound area is 1 in 15 or 4° or 7 %. On hill roads not bound by snow, a maximum superelevation up to 10% has been recommended by IRC.
