Top-Mounted cylindrical concrete foundation for weak post MGS on culverts

Report Number(s): TRP-03-368-19

Description: The system was adapted from the MGS bridge railing (and its other adaptations) for attachment to the top slab of a concrete box culvert. The design concept was developed and evaluated through dynamic component testing. These reinforced concrete foundations were cylindrical in shape and incorporated a 4-in. x 4-in. (102-mm x 102-mm) steel tube socket, which was embedded down the center of the foundation. Each foundation was reinforced with both vertical rebar and transverse hoops
