Summary:
Accident reports and test experience have shown that many of the current guardrail terminal designs, in particular the upstream installation end, are hazardous roadside features and may launch or spear an impacting vehicle. Also poor structural transitions between approach guardrail and bridge rail have caused fatal accidents when impacting vehicles are pocketed at the juncture.

Abstract:

Accident reports and test experience have shown that many of the current guardrail terminal designs, in particular the upstream installation end, are hazardous roadside features and may launch or spear an impacting vehicle. Also poor structural transitions between approach guardrail and bridge rail have caused fatal accidents when impacting vehicles are pocketed at the juncture. The two objectives of the research were to: (1) formulate new traffic barrier terminal and transition concepts and (2) evaluate by full-scale crash tests selected traffic barrier concepts. Service requirements for traffic barrier terminals were formulated, and twelve terminal and three transition concepts were developed. from these concepts, three for terminal and one for transition were selected for further design and evaluation effort.
