Vertical gradient - geometric design of roads, Civil Engineering

Vertical Gradient:

Vertical gradient can be of three types:

Ruling Gradient

Used as a matter of course.

Limiting Gradient

Used in situations where site conditions are not favourable and adoption of ruling gradients increases the cost enormously.

Exceptional Gradient

Used only in very exceptional situations and for short lengths.
