NCHRP REPORT 350 CRASH TEST RESULTS FOR CONNECTICUT TRUCK-MOUNTED ATTENUATOR

The results of four full-scale crash tests performed on the Connecticut Truck Mounted Attenuator (CTMA) are summarized. The tests were conducted in accordance with the guidelines of NCHRP Report 350 for Test Level 2 devices. NCHRP Report 350 specifies two required and two optional tests. The four crash tests passed all requirements of NCHRP Report 350. No repeat tests were required, and the results were uniformly excellent. The successful CTMA test series is the first of several NCHRP Report 350 test programs that are anticipated to gain compliance for various impact attenuation systems designed and developed in Connecticut.
