Stopping Sight Distance

Stopping Sight Distance

The minimum sight distance offered on a road at any spot ought to be of enough length to prevent a vehicle from traveling at style speed, safely while not a collision with the other obstruction. absolutely the minimum sight distance is adequate for the stopping sight distance, which is additionally sometimes referred to as non-passing sight distance.

The sight distance available on a road to a driver at any instance depends on :

(i) features of the road ahead.
(ii) height of the driver‘s eye above the road surface.
(iii) height of the object above the road surface.

The feature of the road ahead which affect the sight distance is the horizontal alignment and vertical profile of the road, the traffic condition, and the position of obstructions. At vertical summit curves, the height of the driver‘s eye and the object above road level are more important factors affecting visibility. The height of an object to be considered for stopping a vehicle depends on what might be a source of danger to the moving vehicle. For the aim of mensuration the stopping sight distance or visibility ahead. IRC has suggested the height of the eye level of the driver as 1.2 m and the height f the object as 0.15 m above the road surface.

Hence the stopping distance available at a summit curve is the distance measured along the road surface at which an object of height 0.15 m can be seen by a driver where the eye is at a height of 1.2 m above the road surface fig

The distance within which a motor vehicle can be stopped depends upon the factors listed below:

(a) The total reaction time of the driver
(b) Speed of vehicle
(c) Efficiency of brakes
(d) Frictional resistance between the road and the types
(e) The gradient of the road.

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, and sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage faces are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform.

Types Of Current Collector

Current Collector A current collector is a device used to collect electrical current from a moving conductor, such as a train or a trolley. It is typically used in electric vehicles, such as trains and trams, to transfer power from an overhead power source to the vehicle's electric motor. The current collector consists of a sliding contact, which is often made of carbon or copper, that makes contact with an overhead power source, such as an overhead catenary wire or a third rail. The sliding contact is mounted on the vehicle and is typically in the form of a pantograph or a trolley pole. The pantograph is a device with a metal frame and a spring-loaded arm that presses against the overhead power source. It is raised and lowered by the operator of the vehicle, and as it moves along the overhead power source it maintains contact and collects the electrical current. The trolley pole is a vertical pole that is mounted on the roof of the vehicle and has a horizontal arm that extends out
