Development of Lightweight Roadside Safety Barriers using Foaming Admixture: Phase I—Properties of Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Cellular Concrete

The roadside safety barrier is a protective barrier that is erected around a racetrack or in the middle of a dual-lane highway in order to reduce the severity of accidents. Recently, interest in portable roadside safety barriers has heightened the interest in the development of a low-cost and high-performance alternative to the conventional safety barrier system. A study has been undertake to characterize fresh and hardened properties of flue gas desulfurizaiton (FGD) cellular concrete (CC) using foaming admixture towards the development of lightweight roadside safety barrier. Test results indicate that FGD CC using a foaming admixture can be effectively used in manufacturing lightweight roadside safety barriers.
