Various quantities of interest are extracted from the finite element results and used to develop a better understanding of the vehicle/pier crash process and to critique current specifications addressing such events.

Roadside barriers are used to protect traffic from roadside obstacles or hazards, such as slopes steep enough to cause rollover crashes, fixed objects like bridge piers, and bodies of water. Roadside barriers can also be used with medians, to prevent vehicles from colliding with hazards within the median.

Median barriers are used to prevent vehicles from crossing over a median. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

The Tau-II System is ideally suited for roadway hazards such as the ends of rigid concrete barriers, steel barrier, bridge piers, signs, etc.

Ease of installation, low profile foundation, numerous transition options, and low priced replacement component after an impact make the Tau-II system ideal to shield most roadside hazards.

The designer should be familiar with the relevant roadside design guidance contained in those publications before developing special-case roadside designs that deviate from the guidance in this Size: 2MB.

Safety barriers are used to stop ‘out of control' vehicles from: leaving the road and hitting roadside hazards, including slopes (roadside barriers) crossing into the path of on-coming vehicles (see median barriers). They are designed to redirect the vehicle and have a lower severity than the roadside hazard they protect.

In most parts of the country this water contains deicing chemicals during winter months. In seaside locations in warmer climates the salt laden air deposits corrosive chemicals on barriers.

Other maximum flare rates for semi-rigid barriers are listed on page of the AASHTO, Roadside Design Guide and on Standard Plan RSeries according to design speed.

Flatter flare rates listed by AASHTO for barrier inside the shy line should only be used where it will not increase the length of the guardrail run. Roadside barriers are hazards.
