Vertical curves are primarily designed as parabolas, using the general form of the parabolic equation with coefficients corresponding to known elements for the road in question. Designers can design a road by adjusting these elements and minimizing costs. These elements include: Inbound and Outbound Grades; Curve Length; Rate of curvature.
