Research on Movement of Vehicle Impacting Safety Barrier

Setting a suitable safety barrier in the road is important in helping prevent traffic accidents, especially serious traffic accidents. The present research involving a safety barrier considers the vehicle and barrier as rigid bodies to determine the maximum impact force of the barrier upon impact. This can simplify the collision process, which creates a large discrepancy with the real collision. This may cause the design of the barrier to be unreasonable. The direct impacting test, according to the finite element theory, will be used to investigate the collision process. The objective is to measure the impact force of the barrier by its dynamic equation upon impact. The results will play an important role in improving the structure of the highway safety barrier and aiding the design of a new safety barrier in China.
