Formula Used:

i = L² / ( 6×R×Ls) Where, i - Tangent deflection angle to any point on the curve L - Length of spiral from tangent to any point Ls - Length of spiral R - Radius of Simple Curve spiral curve

Spiral / transition curve deflection angle calculations are useful in constructions of roads to change the curvature and super elevation.
