Formula Used: Lm = [ S² × (g2 − g1) ] / 864 ∀ S<Lm Lm = 2S - [ 864 / (g2 − g1) ] ∀ S>Lm Where,     Lm - Minimum Curve length     g1 - Initial grade     g2 - Final grade     S - Passing Sight Distance Minimum Curve Length

Vertical curve length calculations using passing sight distance are most useful in the design and the construction of four-lane highways.
