Driver Comfort or Discomfort Factor

Post by MSI »

Q: This is supplemental to a question on the INCR forum about 'Speed while turning Left".
One of the responses was where someone was monitoring the lateral acceleration and it's comparison to what is 'comfort' or 'discomfort'.
The question is related to a FHWA research project we worked on in the 80's which included our coming up with a 'discomfort factor'.
The figures below are our response.
