Abstract

The pavement skid resistance performance index is one of the most important indexes to ensure driving safety. Based on the test data of RIOHTrack full-scale track, this paper analyzes the decay law of pavement skid resistance performance, including the sideway force coefficient (SFC), British pendulum number (BPN), mean texture depth measured by sand patch method (MTD) and sensor measured texture depth by laser method (SMTD), under different equivalent single axle load times (ESALs). The paper analyzes the influence of different methods and conditions on the different indicators and excavates the internal correlation of different pavement skid resistance performance indexes, aiming to improve the effectiveness and accuracy of pavement skid resistance performance detection. The shortcomings of the temperature correction method of BPN and SFC are verified, which cannot correct the skid resistance performance effectively in different temperatures. Based on the assumption that there is a sensitive range of temperature influence on skid resistance performance, a new temperature correction method of skid resistance performance index is proposed based on the Boltzmann model and equivalent temperature of the asphalt surface layer. It can truly reflect the decay law of skid resistance pavement performance. At the same time, the internal correlation between BPN and MTD indicators is analyzed. It is found that there is a linear growth law between two indexes whose correlation coefficient is 0.999, which provides a reference for the research of pavement skid resistance performance.
