The Development of the Application of Centrifugal Force in the Geometric Design of Highways for Driving Comfort on the Pangalengan-Banjaran Roads


The Pangalengan-Banjaran road section has a winding geometric condition. The large number of bend geometries resulted in many accidents due to visibility, radius, and widening of the pavement at the corner, inappropriate road slopes caused many accidents to occur. The research method used in this research is the evaluative research method and quantitative method. The growth of suburban highway infrastructure in Indonesia has previously improved suddenly lengthways with economic growth. The geometrical strategy of the highway has previously remained planned by the typical requirements and needs of the purposes of the highway amenities constructed. The submission of physical science ideas in planning the geometrical stage as a meaning in smearing theoretic physical science to the identical-geometric design. A centrifugal strength in the physical science idea is a straightforward value in scheming geometric straight configurations of the road. Theoretical thoughtful of engineering term of scheming geometrical design viewpoint, has remained created on the method of centrifugal strength in the circumstance of effort on vehicles drive in the highway caisson disease. The operation has constantly remained built on variable quantity which remained strong-minded by thoughtful to spread on reason of rational usefully. These measures are lumped through dipping the result of bigger centrifugal strength. Furthermore, the submission is also able to decrease chance-disposed to areas due to the impact of size-centrifugal services on the geometrical plan of the highway.
