NEW JERSEY BARRIERS ON STRUCTURES

BARRIERE NEW JERSEY SULLE OPERE D'ARTE

This article aims to provide engineers with a precise definition of design criteria for deck slab parapets or edge beams. The definition relates to the variations of permanent load (greater weight of concrete barrier as opposed to flexible barrier), and live loads (hypotheses relating to the positions of out-of-control, or manoeuvre loads without total occupation of the kerb), when a concrete rather than a flexible barrier is installed. Tests on New Jersey barriers installed on a bridge parapet are described and illustrated.
