Effects of Pavement Properties on Vehicular Rolling Resistance: A Literature Review

This literature review focuses on vehicular rolling resistance and its effect on fuel economy. It begins by defining rolling resistance and outlines the pavement properties involved, including pavement surface texture, roughness, and pavement stiffness. A brief summary is provided for each study and the findings are compiled in tables with data broken down by smoothness, texture, and pavement type.
