The Management Of Skid Resistance In Australia – A National, State Or Local Task?
It is widely recognised that providing appropriate levels of skid resistance and surface texture across a road network can make a valuable contribution in securing positive road safety outcomes. Yet, the proactive management ...
Certification Process For Self-Wetting Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment Used For Construction And Maintenance Purposes On French Airports
Friction characteristics of runways are regularly measured to detect any change in skid resistance and to decide maintenance needs. Self-wetting continuous friction measuring equipments (CFME) are used for functional ...
Assessment Of Polishing Behaviour Of Sand Using The Test Device According To Wehner/Schulze
To ensure the safety of road users during driving maneuvers an adequate skid resistance level of the wearing courses is required. Skid resistance of dense road surface layers besides the texture profile also depends on the ...
X-Ray Computed Tomography Observations Of Low-Noise Mixes
In recent years, low-noise mixes have met with considerable success, as they provide an effective response to a well-identified problem and produced effects that are directly perceptible by residents. The design of mixes ...
Determination Of Correlation Between Road Pavement Skid Resistance And Braking Deceleration
There are many situations when road pavement surface skid resistance drops to unacceptable levels. Skid resistance is an essential pavement property for road safety, but drivers are not able to assess its degree by visual ...
Influence of Thin Waterfilm on Skid Resistance
Most of past research on the skid resistance/road wetness relationship deal with thick water depths (> 1mm). Questions remain as to the variation of skid resistance with thin water films and the transition between the dry ...
