Guardrails are the reinforced metal bars found on the side of a road that keep vehicles from driving off the road, typically on the edge of a motorway at dangerous points and where there is no shoulder, such as on a road deck or bridge. There are several types of guardrails and numerous commercial guardrail systems. Steel guardrails are most common, and provide both a visual and physical barrier between traffic zones.
Our experts have experience as mechanical engineers that focus on the safety and design analysis of guardrails. This expertise includes cost estimation, safety research, and safety analysis and investigations. They also have expertise in forensic engineering, guardrail testing, and other aspects of traffic engineering. They have assisted in cases by conducting accident investigations, guardrail inspections, accident reconstructions, and guardrail failure analysis.
These consultants assist law firms and insurance companies with engineering and safety analysis, safety standards and code compliance, and opine on issues of the design and construction of guardrail systems. They have worked with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation on guardrail studies and barrier design and enhancement.
