Applications of Steel Thrie Beam Guardrail 1. This thrie beam guardrail is highly cost effective and widely used as a physical barrier to prevent run-off road collisions, prevent pedestrians from walking across highways, and protect vehicles from skidding off roads, especially mountain roads and bridges. 2. T6 Bridge Rail The researchers recommend a full-scale crash test on a tubular thrie-beam system to verify the predicted impact performance. The tubular thrie-beam system could be improved prior to testing by redesigning the post baseplate connection to further increase its strength. The strength values should be chosen to reduce the.

Major Applications: Thrie-beam steel guardrail when installed on the highways and roadways plays an active role in the prevention of vehicular impact, vehicle overturning and run-off-road collisions.

It finds popular uses in interstate highways, highways, secondary roads, common roadways. The purpose of the test was to evaluate the performance of a in.

high Thrie beam guardrail system when impacted at 60 mph and 15 deg by a 4,lbm (Mg) vehicle. The test installation for AS-4 is shown in Figure 8. Test AS-5 The objective of this test was to File Size: 4MB.

The mounting height of the thrie beam rail was mm to the center and mm to the top of the thrie beam rail element. The test installation consisted of a m-long length-of-need section of modified thrie-beam guardrail with a m-long transition section from the thrie beam to the W-beam rail.

The posts nearest to the bridge rail are spaced at 3 ft 1 V2 in. and the third post is 6 ft 3 in. from the second. The approach. incorporated Thrie-beam guardrail elements to help meet the increased stiffness requirements.

In this situation, a W-beam to Thrie-beam transition elemen t is utilized near the be ginning of the transition system to account for the differences in rail geometri es and provide structural continuity between the two barrier systems.

THRIEBEAM guardrail should also be used in transition from W-Beam guardrail to more rigid barriers. This significantly reduces the deflection of the barrier system.

The Modified Thrie Beam Guardrail. The thrie beam guardrail has been modified to improve performance in large-vehicle impacts by increasing the depth and energy-absorbing capacity of the block-out.

Crash tests show that this design can safely contain and redirect a wider range of vehicles than other W-beam designs.

bottom of the bridge rail post is welded on top of this longitudinal beam (see Picture #7 for a sectional view). The top of the bridge rail post is mechanically connected to the top of the longitudinal trusses (see Picture # for a top view). The thrie-beam guardrail plank is attached to the post as usual (see Picture #6 for a front view).

Increasing the blockout depth also improved crash test performance, as did raising the height of the rail from 27 3/4". Gregory Industries announces a technology breakthrough in the performance of steel-post highway guardrail systems. The Gregory Mini Spacer (GMS) provides an engineered solution that overcomes blockout variables while optimizing guardrail release behavior for safer control of even extreme axial forces.
