For any circular curve, of a given radius R, where R

is the radius of the inner rail:

Notes: (1) Check to be certain that a gage reduction

is not required for a 300-ft. radius, i.e.,

(2) For two or more cranes, use the average

equivalent length of the cranes to obtain the reduced

gage, and check to ascertain that this gage reduction

is within the float capability of each crane. If the

gage reduction is too great for any crane, adjust the

track design using the equivalent length of the

critical crane until a satisfactory reduced gage is

obtained.
