Project Description

CONCRETE BARRIER BAE

Concrete barrier for vehicle impact absortion

Year: 2017-2019

This project consists of researching and developing a new product capable of minimising the accident rate of traffic accidents thanks to the absorption of energy involved in the impact through the deformation of the structural system. This type of safety protection, which consists of a concrete barrier, seeks to reduce the severity of the impact (ASI index) and improve the level of containment. The geometrical and mechanical characteristics of the ensemble mean that its behaviour has less damaging effects compared to current systems.

To this end, INGECID has received aid co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Operational Programme FEDER 2014-2020 in Cantabria through the INNOVA 2016 grant line.
