This program calculates sight distance on a crest vertical curve when the sight distance is greater than the length of curve. Using the calculated sight distance, find Vcalc in the table below.

S = (L/2)+(1079/A)

Enter L and A


L = Length of Vertical Curve (ft.)

A = Algebraic Difference in Grade
