Evaluation and Full Scale Testing of Concrete Prefabricated Bridge Rails

The purpose of this study is to develop an approved prefabricated barrier rail system for use on accelerated bridge construction (ABC) projects. It will make use of preliminary work completed by the ABC-UTC project (identification of structurally feasible system) and complete the evaluation protocol including crash testing to insure compliance with current American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Load and Resistance Factor Design (AASHTO LRFD) Specifications and AASHTO Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH).
