ABSTRACT
This paper gives information about the results of investigation on a discrete-event simulation methodology to compute coordinates of a composite curve through Information and Communication Technology (ICT) system. Tangible modelling and simulation validity was done using general purpose application programs that is readily available rather than costly and tedious conventional hand method. In the methodology, deflection angle, tangential angles for the two transition curves and central circular arc, together with deviation angle computations, were successful modelled and simulated via ICT approach. Coordinates produced as the result of the process are useful set of numbers in Eastings and Nothings to defining the entry transition curve, central circular arc and the exit transition curve of a highway or railroad composite curve at site. The conclusion in this study is that a discrete-event simulation is a suitable methodology for computing useful coordinates for setting out of a composite curve meant for a safe highway or railroad.
