A RESEARCH TEAM IS ENGAGED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ATTENUATION SYSTEMS FOR HIGHWAY GORES. THE ACHIEVEMENTS TO DATE AND FUTURE AIMS ARE REPORTED. A METHOD FOR INITIALLY SCREENING AVAILABLE ENERGY-ABSORBING DEVICES IS PRESENTED. THE EVALUATION OF THE REMAINING DEVICES BY TESTING AND ANALYSIS IS DISCUSSED. THE PROCEDURES FOR INEXPENSIVE AND FLEXIBLE TESTING OF ATTENUATION SYSTEMS USING SCALE-MODELING TECHNIQUES ARE DEVELOPED. /AUTHOR/
