Analysis of Crashworthiness and Design Improvement of the Balsi-Beam Mobile Barrier System 

By: Josh Wen Advisor: Professor Bahram Ravani

The Balsi-Beam is a mobile barrier system currently used on California highways. In an accident event
of a collision of an erratic vehicle into the barrier, the Balsi-Beam system should be able to contain and redirect
the impacting vehicle to protect workers in the work-zone and also reduce the danger to occupants of the
impacting vehicle and to other traffic. Full Abstract
