Protection factors were calculated by Monte Carlo for cylindrical barriers with a concentric interior partition. The barrier thicknesses were 20, 40, and 80 psf and the partition thicknesses were 20 and 40 psf. The radius of the barrier was 10.0 ft and the interior partition had radii of 2.5, 5.0, and 10.0 ft. The cylindrical concrete barriers were infinite in height. The Engineering Method was also used to calculate protection factors for the cylindrical barriers, and the results were compared with the Monte Carlo data.
