Performance of Longitudinal Barriers on Curved, Superelevated Roadway Sections

The objective of this research was to determine the performance limits of commonly used, semi-rigid and rigid longitudinal barriers when installed on superelevated, curved roadways. Due to the departure of several key staff, the project was terminated at the conclusion of the simulation analyses conducted in Phase II.
