TEST EVALUATION OF EARTH BERM MEDIAN BARRIER
The purpose of this report is to present test data and evaluation of a median barrier earth berm design developed with the aid of a powerful existing predictive tool. A series of full scale tests have been conducted on the berm design. The data for all tests has been reduced and selected results compared to the highly sophisticated computer model. A related report to this project is "Vehicle Redirection Effectiveness of Median Berms and curbs," by Norman J. Delays and David J. Segal, Calspan Corporation, Buffalo, N. Y., May 1973.
