Curve Geometry Terminology

curve

Remarks

Only two (2) defining elements are required to describe a circular curve; such as chord & central angle, radius & arc, degree of curve & tangent. Normally, the common curve elements defined by controlling order in a land description are the Radius, Central Angle, Chord and Arc Length.

The bearing and distance from either end of a tangent or non-tangent curve to the radius point will position the curve with absolute clarity.
