SKID RESISTANCE OF SNOW- OR ICE-COVERED ROADS

THE SKID RESISTANCE COEFFICIENTS OBTAINED ON SNOW- OR ICE-COVERED ROADS ARE PRESENTED. SKID RESISTANCE CHANGES ACCORDING TO SNOW CONDITIONS, TEMPERATURE, KINDS OF VEHICLE TIRES, AND CHEMICALS USED. THREE CLASSIFICATIONS OF SKID RESISTANCE USED ARE SKID RESISTANCE IN BRAKING CONDITION, SKID RESISTANCE IN DRIVING CONDITION WHEN THE TIRE DOES NOT SLIP AND JUST BEFORE IT BEGINS TO SPIN, AND SKID RESISTANCE IN DRIVING CONDITIONS WHEN THE TIRE IS SPINNING. THESE DATA ARE USED IN DISCUSSION OF STOPPING DISTANCE, LONGITUDINAL GRADIENT, AND CROSS FALL OF THE ROAD. /AUTHOR/
