1. On HW5, designers now change the length of spiral Ls to 600 ft, while setting the radii Rc for Curve 1 and 2 to 1200 ft. The design velocity Vdes that will give a "jerk" of 2.0 ft/sec^3 is most nearly: @ Vd = (Rc*Ls*C)^1/3 = 76.993 mph a. 72 mph *b. 77 c. 82 d. 87 2. For the design values above in #1, the rectangular spiral component Xs is most nearly: @ must be slightly less than 600, DELTAs=Ls/(2*Rc) radians, and by the infinite series: Xs = Ls*(1 – DELTAs^2/ (5*2!) + DELTAs^4/(9*4!)-+...) = 596.26 *a. 596 b. 598 c. 600 d. 602 3. On our HW5, which will compute the correct value of station for the T.S. for the second curve (Sta TS2)? @ Sta TS2 = Sta ST1 + (TTL2-Ts1-Ts2), must compute the straight line distance on TTL2. a. Sta PI1 + Ts1 + Ts2 b. Sta PI2 – Ts1 c. Sta 40+00 – TTL2 + Ts1 + Ts2 *d. Sta ST1 + (TTL2-Ts1-Ts2)

4. On railroads and other fixed guideway route systems, spirals are absolutely needed because of: @ the "infinite jerk" force build up at the PC without spirals. a. national design standards *b. rapid lateral force build-up c. a natural spiral in the tracks d. rail spacing and geometry 5. If the spiral design values of problem #1 were used to insert spirals into Curve 2 of SR25, the length of the remaining circular curve is most nearly: @ DELTAc=DELTA(32 deg) – 2*DELTAs = 0.058. Lc=Rc*DELTAc = 70.2 feet *a. 70 ft b. 100 ft c. 130 ft d. 160 ft

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
