cant gradient

6 examples (0.03 sec)
  • The rate of change of cant is used to determine the suitable cant gradient for a given design speed.
  • Track twist may also be used to describe cant gradient which may be expressed in percentage of cant change per length unit.
  • Cant gradient is the amount by which cant is increased or decreased in a given length of track.
  • The specification that focuses on the rate of change in crosslevels of curved track is contained within the area related to cant gradient.
  • However, in England, the term track twist is normally used in the context of cant gradient with higher values which are considered to be faults.
  • In the United States, the required cant gradient on a transition curve to achieve smooth connection between superelevation of curved track and the zero crosslevel of tangent track is called superelevation runoff.
