Design and Evaluation of Sleeve Nut through Tensile Testing

Report Number(s): TRP-03-412-19

Description: The Midwest Pooled Fund Program has been developing a prototype of a non-proprietary, high-tension, four-cable, median barrier for use anywhere in a 6H:1V median V-ditch. This system incorporates four evenly-spaced cables, Midwest Weak Posts (MWPs) spaced at 8 to 16 ft (2.4 to 4.9 m) intervals, and a bolted, tabbed bracket to attach the cables to each post.

Test Level: NA

MASH Test Number: HTSN (1-14)

Proprietary/Non-proprietary: Non-proprietary

Pass/Fail: Pass

Evaluation: Testing + Engineering Analysis

Sponsor: Midwest Roadside Safety Facility
