|Those bars that lorries have at the sides and rear to stop people driving under them and getting their heads chopped off. Anyone know a neat word or phrase in English?|

The main function of the protective road barrier is to hold the vehicle and direct it on the desired trajectory, ensuring maximum possible safety to the driver and passengers of the colliding vehicle. One of the key functional requirements for the road barrier is its capacity to ensure appropriate deceleration of the vehicle safe to human organisms. This depends on proper susceptibility of the barrier and its ability to both elastic and plastic deformation.
The novel proposed solution introduces attenuators, susceptible to loads, mounted between the guiding bars and the posts of the barrier. The attenuators allow for a smooth interception of the varying masses which load the barrier on the collision (e.g. cars, lorries, buses). The elastic performance of the attenuators reduces the resistance of the barrier in the first phase of the collision. Then during further displacement of the vehicle the resistance increases again. Two attenuators, mounted on two neighboring posts, take over the load. Subsequent attenuators are engaged during the displacement. This solution brings about a continuous smooth deformation of the guiding bar, which ensures a safer progress of the collision and limits considerably its adverse effects
