The design speed of a highway serves as a guide in the selection of the physical features referred to above. Selection of the correct design speed ensures that issues of both safety and economy in the design process are addressed. The chosen design speed must be consistent with the anticipated vehicle speeds on the highway under consideration.
O. Gunes, in Developments in FiberReinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Civil Engineering, 2013 Conclusion. Civil engineering is in the midst of a transition era in which FRP composite materials gradually gain acceptance as a new class of materials, superior in many ways to conventional construction materials. Realizing the potential of these materials in .
