A circular curve is most suited for connecting

  1. Two straights in horizontal plane only.
  2. Two straights in vertical plane only
  3. Two straights one in horizontal plane and the second in vertical plane
  4. Two straights in horizontal plane or vertical plane

Answer: A. Two straights in horizontal plane only

A circular curve is most suited for connecting two straights in horizontal plane only.

Solution

Most commonly circular curves are used to connect intersecting tangent (Straight) sections of highways or railroads.

P.C = Point of curvature (Beginning of curve)

P.T = Point of tangency (End of curves)

When we provide a circular curve of different radii to connect two straight lines then it is called compound curve. Hence, a circular curve is most suited for connecting two straights in horizontal plane only.
