Simplified test procedures were developed to provide reliable comparative data for evaluation of flexible delineator posts. Current commercial designs were tested. Tests included shear, flexure, tension and impact at ambient and low temperature and before and after ultraviolet exposure. It is concluded that the simplified tests can be used in conjunction with field performance data to evaluate performance of new designs/materials. The report includes Appendix A - Text Plan bound with the body of the report, and Appendix B - Test Data and Appendix C - Photographic Coverage which are separately bound. (Author)
