Performance Level 1 Tests on the Nebraska Open Concrete Bridge Rail

A safety performance evaluation of the 29-in. Nebraska Open Concrete Bridge Rail was conducted for the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR). The evaluation included computer simulation modellig and two full-scale vehicle crash tests. The two crash tests were conducted to evaluate structural adequacy of concrete posts adjacent to a gap and the reduced reinforcement in the concrete rail, respectively.
