COMPRESSION TESTS ON SPACERS AND DEFORMATION ELEMENTS FOR SAFETY FENCES

DRUCKVERSUCHE MIT ABSTANDHALTERN UND DEFORMATIONSELEMENTEN FUER LEITSCHRANKEN

Both spacers and deformation elements are incorporated in safety fences between fence and post, but normally only deformation elements are used between fences and hard objects such as walls, bridge parapets, lighting columns and the like. The first part of the report deals with basic questions related to spacers and deformation elements. In the second part brief details are given of a pipe-shaped deformation element developed at the Swiss federal institute of technology, institute for road and railway construction. This was carefully designed for use with a new bridge safety fence intended for Swiss motorway bridges. The third part deals with the characteristics of all the elements tested in laboratory tests. A selection of the deformation elements and spacers most frequently used in Switzerland was examined. (TRRL)
