Bullnose Configuration

Question
State NE
Description Text

The Bullnose post layout for posts 8 – 10  is for the
posts to land on the joints.



Our thrie-beam post layout is similar to the new MGS (joints
between the posts).



 



Should we switch the layout between post 7 & 8 or 10
& 11 beyond the bullnose (as tested)?

The bullnose configuration should remain the same as was used in the full-scale crash testing program through Post no. 9. As such, I believe that you could either use a midpost between 9 & 10 or 10 & 11 for the thrie beam.
