A Reverse Curve Consists of

A reverse curve consists of-

  1. A single curve of a circle connecting two straights
  2. Two arcs of different radii bending in the same direction
  3. Two arcs of equal radii bending in the same direction
  4. Two arcs of equal or different radii bending in the opposite direction

Answer: D. Two arcs of equal or different radii bending in the opposite direction

A reverse curve consists of two arcs of equal or different radii bending in the opposite direction.

Solution

Reverse curves are made with two simple circular curves whose convexity are in the opposite direction or made of two arcs having equal or different radii which are bending in opposite direction.

  • Reverse curves are used where two straight lines are in parallel or intersect at a very small angle.
  • Superelevation is not provided in the case of a reverse curve. Hence, a reverse curve consists of two arcs of equal or different radii bending in the opposite direction.
