CABLE BARRIER RESEARCH
is one of the most extensive collection of research about cable barrier systems on the web that we
know of. It was recognized by the FHWA in their write up on cable
barriers. The site was originally put together by GSI Highway Products(GSI High Tension Cable Barrier) and was later moved here. Enjoy
studying. If there is a paper or link we are missing, please let us
know about it, email@example.com.
Some links lead to external websites, some open files (PDF and PPT). All links open a new window.
Be sure to visit our Cable Barrier In The News webpage that highlights stories from around the nation.
