Transitions Between Steel Beam and Concrete Barriers

February 11, 2021

A transition in a safety barrier system is a short section between a more flexible system and a less flexible system to decrease the flexibility gradually along its length. At present there are various transition designs being used by road agencies.

This webinar describes the development, testing and evaluation of a proposed Australasian transition from a strong post public domain W-beam to a concrete barrier.

Presented by Rod Troutbeck, Daniel A. Naish and Jade Hogan.
