ABSTRACT

A review of cable barrier testing projects is presented. Historical development of cable barriers is considered, and modern evolution into low-tension and high-tension systems is described. System details were described for each test when available, and the full-scale test results summarized. Simulation of cable barrier impacts with full-scale test vehicles was summarized with a historical perspective. Modern efforts to simulate cable barrier impacts were also discussed. This report is intended to supplement and update the information in a previously-published Cable Literature Review, MwRSF Research Report No. TRP-03-118-02.
