Development of a Movable Deformable Crash Barrier 760797

Rigid moving barriers and deformable moving barriers are compared conceptually and analytically, and advantages of the deformable barrier in representing average vehicles are presented. Several physical concepts for controlled energy dissipation are described, and experimental test results given. Architecture and powerplant mass representation are discussed, and the need for field accident analysis as a basis for structural representations is stressed.
