To reduce the accident risk of work zone on highway, a new movable barrier solution is presented in this paper. The barrier is effective, affordable, environment-friendly and versatile. It can raise the level of highway safety performance in work zone, median opening and tidal lane. The development of the versatile movable barrier took reliability, mobility, economical efficiency, construction convenience into account. Researchers optimized structure by finite element analysis as well as mechanic analysis. The finite element analysis was accomplished by LS-DYNA. This barrier set eventually passed simulated impact tests, which proved that it is able to fulfil the requirement of 160kj-level safety performance.
