Vertical Gradient:

Vertical gradient can be of three types:

Ruling Gradient

Used as a matter of course.

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.
