Key words


Abstract

In this study, the road linear shape was sampled by using the centerline path, the design elements of horizontal alignment were deduced by applying the Method of Least Squares, and the accuracy was analyzed. By this method, IP, IA, R, ?R and A-parameter were also determined.

By observing relatively long straight sections, the approximate values could be estimated, and particularly, the considerably accurate value of A-parameter was determined. This study, using the Method of Least Squares, aims to contribute to the development of the alignment examination in frequent traffic accident regions.
