    Guardrail ruptures occurring at a splice have been observed for a wide variety of w-beam barrier types including strong-post w-beam guardrails, weak-post w-beam guardrails, w-beam guardrail terminals and w-beam transitions. (1)(2)(3)(4) The recent crash testing literature was searched to find examples of guardrail rupture and splice failure. Curved W-Beam Guardrail Systems This work shall consist of the fabrication, assembly, and installation of specified types of curved W-beam guardrail connector system or curved W-beam guardrail terminal system in accordance with the requirements herein and as shown on the plans.

      Effect of various W-beam guardrail post spacings and rail heights on safety performance (Cited from other source) The study concluded that: 1. The W-beam guardrail .   In this article, Structural Engineer, Mark Duckett, P.E., S.I., S.E.C.B. discusses the topic of construction guardrail failures. Through video, he introduces a properly designed and constructed guardrail, and performs testing on that system to demonstrate the inherent and robust safety of a properly engineered system.

    GSI carries an extensive inventory of highway guardrail products including 10 gauge and 12 gauge material. We stock curved guardrail from 5' to 60' radii, a wide variety of terminal end conditions including SGTs, and a wide variety of steel and timber posts for state and non-state use. The three major areas addressed in this study are the impact performance of bridge railings, transitions from guardrails to bridge railings, and end treatments for guardrails and median barriers. This report presents a summary of the results of various laboratory, pendulum, and .

Pendulum testing Three pendulum tests were conducted at the Federal Out-door Impact Laboratory (FOIL) using a kg ( lb) pendulum as part of a larger test series to assess the perfor-mance of damaged guardrail [5].

The response of a G4(1S) strong post steel w-beam guardrail system to pendulum impacts has been investigated in a series of full-size physical tests and in simulated experiments using the explicit finite-element analysis code by: Pendulum Impact Testing of Steel W-Beam Guardrail, FOIL Test Numbers: 94PP, 94P, and 94P This contains the test results from a series of seven pendulum impact tests conducted at the Federal Outdoor Impact Laboratory (FOIL) pendulum facility located at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) in McLean, VA.

The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to develop a pendulum test methodology to evaluate the effect of minor damage on the performance of w-beam barrier, and (2) to use this test methodology to assess the effect of several different damage modes on the crash performance of strong post w-beam barrier.

Wood Post W -beam Guardrail Test: 5,lb, ½-ton Chevrolet 4-door mph Problem Statement •Current. guardrail for a pendulum test (right) There are many ways in which strong-post w-beam guardrail can sustain damage. This study is focused solely on missing blockouts.

Two examples of guardrails with missing blockouts are shown in Figure 1. Blockouts can be missing for many reasons, but the most common are environmental degradation of. Figure W-Beam Guardrail PRE-INSTALLATION Prior to the inspection of guardrail placement, the Technician is required to review all of the following information: 1) The General Notes section of the plans may specify a type of railing, end section, and post spacing.

2) The Detail Sheets section of the plans indicate the specific. Nested W-beam guardrail with long span across culvert. The culvert was assumed to have a minimum soil cover of 18 in.

( cm). The embedment depth for the one short post midspan over the culvert was also assumed to be 18 in. ( cm). The guardrail system was assumed to be a standard G4(2W) strong-post bl0t:ked-uut W-beam guardrail system.

Content presented in this Guide for w-beam guardrail damage assessment has been reproduced from NCHRP Pendulum tests have shown that horizontal tears located between the top and bottom corrugations of a w-beam rail do not notably reduce the tensile capacity of the rail.

Such tears, however, can result in a part of the vehicle (e.g., front. guardrail system, the energy of a vehicle hit- ting it is transmitted to the earth by the posts supporting the flex or W-beam rail.

Because the posts are the key to successful perform- ance of a guardrail system, evaluating them without the high cost of full-scale crash-test- ing poses a challenge to researchers.

The majority of the finite element analysis in this project was conducted by Carolyn Hampton and reported in her M.S. thesis, â Limits of Permissible Damage in Strong-Post W-Beam Guardrail.â The authors wish to thank Roger Bligh for providing TTI crash test data and Karla Polivka-Lechtenberg for providing the test reports and data for the UNL.

The dynamic response performance of the posts is determined using pendulum impact tests. Static cantilever bending tests have shown that recycled posts are more flexible than conventional wood and steel posts; however, the ultimate load capacities for several recycled posts are comparable to that of conventional posts.

The tests were conducted as part of an ongoing research effort to compare the dynamic response from standard w-beam guardrail with the dynamic response of an FRP composite rail.

The data establishes that the energy from a pendulum with a mass of kg and a velocity of 35 km/h is not enough to produce the forces necessary to load the FRP rail. Any w-beam guardrail that is found to be less than ” high shall be removed and reset to meet the applicable Construction Standard Details for the affected system, or shall be replaced with MASH-compliant guardrail.

In addition, any w-beam guardrail that is expected to be less than. It is known how- ever from full-scale crash testing as well as the splice failures observed in the pendulum tests that the splice is a weak point in the guardrail system.

Balancing these two observations, the research team recommends a repair threshold of 2 or more splice bolts with any guardrail material missing around the bolts with high.W-beam guardrail derives its popularity and usefulness from a super-durable make-up and an amazing flexibility, both as a barrier beam and as a building material panel.

All over the globe, thousands of lives have been saved due to the impressive performance of this solid steel fencing component. Every American has benefited from the strength of.TEST ARTICLE A modified 04(1 S) W -beam guardrail system was constructed for evaluation of a recycled polyethylene offset block.

The system consisted ofm long, gauge W-beam rail elements mounted on mm long Wl50x steel posts at a height of mm to the center of the rail.
