 Abstract
Unshielded posts on roadside are a critical hazard to the safety of impact vehicle to the posts. A crashworthy post is developed. In the first phase, it dissipates the impact energy by the linear momentum conservation principle while the plastic impact between the post and vehicle takes place, then, the second phase dissipation follows by the deformation of the energy absorbing modules embedded in the guide trough of the foundation. Simulations of impacts to a rigidly connected post and crashworthy post were made using LS-DYNA program, which demonstrated the danger of unshielded rigidly connected post and the effectiveness of the proposed crashworthy post to the 0.9ton-80km/h impact.
