VEHICULAR CRASH TESTS OF BARRIER SYSTEMS ON NONLEVEL TERRAIN

The impact behavior of two widely used barrier systems when placed on nonlevel terrain has been determined. The test site was designed to represent a roadside section defined by the road surface itself, a shoulder, a side slope, and a back slope. The road surface consisted of an existing concrete surface. The two roadside barriers tested were 61. 0 m long excluding the rigid anchors on both ends. Two sets of anchor foundations were installed to permit tests at two different barrier offsets.
