I’m updating my specification for cable barrier line post footing. I would like to incorporate some of the information that MwRSF has done with bogie testing of socketed foundations.

|Response||The critical impact that we at MwRSF have selected is:
An impact height, H, of 11” to represent a small car bumper
Restrict foundation movement, X, to less than 1” to prevent resetting of foundation during system repairs
Posts were impacted to create strong axis bending and continued until the bogie overrode the post. The specific load magnitude, Y, will vary depending on the post. For an S3x5.7 post, the peak load has typically been between 17 and 20 kips. For the new cable post, the MWP, peak loads were between 8 and 10 kips.
