Enter the Barrier Length, Depth, Anchor Spacing and Current Velocity in the boxes shown and Click the Solve button. The Cable and Anchor Loads will be shown along with the Sag and the Angle Theta. To obtain new results, simply change the values in any of the four required boxes and click the Solve button. In most cases the Barrier Length, Depth and the Current Velocity will be constants leaving only the Anchor Spacing to be varied. However, you are encouraged to try various combinations in order to achieve the desired results. Remember the cable load for standard Type 2.DOT or Type 3.DOT Barriers must not exceed 1960 pounds.
