Effect of Concrete Barriers With A Load Strike Angle
Concrete barriers are placed in districts where vehicles are prohibited to enter. In this study, the suggested section concept comprises three parts. The nonlinear explicit dynamic ANSYS finite element software is used to confirm the strike angle effect during impact force with different load magnitudes. Results demonstrate that the new shape can deal with the impact force with an appropriate strike angle. The deformations, stresses, and strains in the concrete part influenced by the applied load regularly vary with the increase in load strike angle. The strike angle of 20° is more sensitive than other strike angles.
