FEASIBILITY OF MEASURING IMPACT CONDITIONS WITH TRAFFIC RAILINGS

A number of methods for determing impact conditions with traffic railings are discussed in terms of cost-effective implementation possibilities. The results of the feasibility study are presented in detail. A two-frequency CW transmission line approach for measuring impact conditions is selected as the most practical approach available and based on experimental results should provide a useful cost-effective system. Specifications for the equipment requirements are given. /FHWA/
