These factors include channelization (right and left turn lane), sight distance, intersection angle, median width, surface width, shoulder width, signal characteristics, lighting, roadside condition, truck percentage in the traffic volume, posted speed, weather, etc.
Notice that the intersection angle between the tangent and g is the same as the angle between the respective normal directions of the fibre and of the line.
When the drill hole is viewed against the cross sections of the anomaly it is apparent that it was drilled over the top edge of the anomaly and would have intersected the anomaly at approximately 300 metres with a 10 degree intersection angle.
These billets were pressed in an equal-channel angular die of 10 mm width channel, with a [phi] = 90[degrees] channel intersection angle and a [psi] = 28[degrees] curvature on the outer side of channel intersection, see Figure 1.
The policy review component checks the following intersection design elements for compliance with design policy: corner radius, turn lane design, intersection angle, and intersection sight distance triangles.

Geometric design of signalized intersections covers channelization principles, number of intersection approaches, intersection angles, horizontal and vertical alignments, corner radius and curb ramp designs, detectable warnings, access control, sight distance, pedestrian facilities, and bicycle facilities.
ShapesPlanner supports standard interpolation schemes; generates minimum length path subject to constraints such as pre- and post-hold, minimum radius and dog-leg severity; and computes intersection angles with surfaces and faults in fully linked 3D, map and cross-section views.
