The paper presents the finite element method approach to determine stress distribution in rockfall barrier post with end to end-plate connection, assembled with high tensile bolts under two different types of impact load. For the analysis purposes typical fixed to the foundation, rockfall barrier post is adopted with 2,50 m height and sixty degrees slope to the horizontal ground line. One post end is fixed (welded) to the base plate – anchored to foundation, the second end is supported via retaining rope. The impact load applied exactly in the post mid-height and boulder caught via net in the mid-distance between two consecutive post are discussed. Four different locations of end to end-plate connection are analysed measuring from the fixed support i.e. dimension varies in the range of 0,30 m up to 0,60 m with 0,10 m step. Six high tensile bolts, zinc coated with 12.9 grade strength have been adopted in the connection. The stated boundary problem was solved by means of SolidWorks software.
