CRASH TEST PERFORMANCE OF A GUARDRAIL MEDIAN BARRIER AND TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION-ZONE CRASH CUSHION. ABRIDGMENT

The Guard Rail Energy Absorbing Terminal (G-R-E-A-T) and G-R-E-A-T Construction Zone (G-R-E-A-Tcz) are restorable attenuator systems developed to cushion both the narrow stationary and construction zone hazards. Both systems conform to the test standards for crash cusions outlined in Bronstat and Michie (minus 4). Because the G-R-E-A-T is often used in bidirectional traffic, an additional test, for a wrong-way side-angle impact, was determined necessary to establish its performance suitability. This report describes the units, the test series, and the test results. /Author/
