Completed Research Projects
This project was sponsored by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program as Project
22-27. The purpose is to update and re-code the RSAP program used for roadside safety benefit-cost analysis.
The purpose of this project was to update the content of the AASHTO-ARTBA-AGC
Task Force 13 Luminaire Guide and to put the guide on-line as a searchable database of crash tested luminaire designs.
Recommended Procedures for Verification and validation of Computer Simulations used for Roadside Safety Applications (NCHRP 22-24)
project developed procedures for validation and verification of computer simulations used to replicate vehicle crash tests for roadside
hardware design and evaluation. The RSVVP software was developed to assist in the assessment and the guidelines are provided
in NCHRP W179.
The objective of this project is to examine the likely performance of the
guardrail installed on the TRC test track in the 1970ís and determine if it is adequate for future anticipated use.
The objective of this project
is to develop recommended guidelines for the selection of Test Levels 2 through 5 bridge rails considering in-service performance
and benefit-cost analysis.
The objective of this research is to develop a strategic plan for TCRS
that guides the technical committee activities in its role as the focal point for roadside safety policies and guidance.
The objective of this project is to develop a field guide
to assist highway agencies in deciding when guardrails need to be repaired based on the observed damage.
