Super Elevation

Definition of Super Elevation

When a vehicle is moving on a curved path it is subject to an outward force known as centrifugal force. in order to counteract the effect of centrifugal force, the outer edge of the pavement is raised with respect to the inner edge. This transverse inclination provided to the pavement surface is known as superelevation or cant or banking.
