DEVELOPMENT OF A TEXTURE PROFILE RECORDER

SURFACE TEXTURE IS ONE OF THE MAIN FACTORS THAT INFLUENCES THE SKID RESISTANCE AND THE POSSIBILITY OF HYDROPLANING ON WET WEATHER PAVEMENTS. THEREFORE, TO DETERMINE A MINIMUM LEVEL OF SKID RESISTANCE THAT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE ON A PARTICULAR PAVEMENT A KNOWLEDGE OF THE DRAINAGE ABILITY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ROADWAY SURFACE TEXTURE IS REQUIRED. ACCORDINGLY, A TEXTURE PROFILE RECORDER WHICH IS A DEVICE DESIGNED TO ACCURATELY RECORD THE LOCAL VARIATIONS IN SURFACE GEOMETRY WAS FABRICATED. /AUTHOR/
