Roadside Safety Features

This record contains seven papers on vehicle-guardrail interactions and includes some special applications of guardrails at bridges and the economics of median barriers. Both computer simulation and crash tests were used to evaluate current and innovative designs.
1. Crash Test Evaluation of the Vehicle Attenuating Terminal (V-A-T)
2. Guardrail-Bridge Rail Transition Evaluations
3. An Analysis of the Risk of Occupant Injury in Second Collisions
4. Development of an Economic Model to Compare Median Barrier Costs
5. The Design of Independent Anchor Blocks for Vehicular-Impact Loadings
6. Structural Optimization of Strong-Post W-Beam Guardrail
7. W-Beam approach Treatment at Bridge Rail Ends Near Intersecting Roadways
