Crashworthiness of Roadside Hardware on Curbed Roadways

The objectives of this research are the following:  (1) Determine the effects of curbs on the crashworthiness of selected roadside safety hardware (RSH) at various speeds, geometries, and offsets from the curb (2) Develop guidelines for the use of RSH in combination with curb (3) Prepare the guidelines for incorporation into a future update of the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide (4) Provide recommendations for any additional crash testing requirements that should be made to MASH on RSH installed in combination with curb.
