SKID RESISTANCE OF LINSEED OIL TREATED PAVEMENTS

A STUDY WAS MADE TO DETERMINE WHAT LOSS WOULD INCUR IN THE WET AND DRY SKID RESISTANCE OF PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS AFTER A LINSEED OIL TREATMENT, AND HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE FOR THE SKID RESISTANCE TO RETURN TO ITS PRETREATMENT LEVEL. SIX SITES WERE SELECTED IN THREE AREAS ON VIRGINIA'S INTERSTATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM THAT WERE TREATED FOR NORMAL MAINTENANCE REASONS. USING THE SKID TRAILER AND SKID TEST CAR OF THE VIRGINIA HIGHWAY RESEARCH COUNCIL, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE LOSS AND RECOVERY OF WET SKID RESISTANCE VARIED GREATLY DEPENDING PRINCIPALLY ON THE SURFACE TEXTURE AND CLEANLINESS, APPLICATION AMOUNT, AND THE SURFACE TEMPERATURE AT THE TIME OF THE APPLICATION. UNDER THE WORST CONDITION THE SKID RESISTANCE DROPPED TO A DANGEROUS LEVEL (SKID NUMBER BELOW 40) AND REMAINED THERE FOR 2 DAYS. RECOVERY OF WET SKID RESISTANCE WAS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL 7 OR 8 DAYS AFTER THE TREATMENT. THE DRY PAVEMENT SKID RESISTANCE RECOVERED ALMOST COMPLETELY IN 4 TO 6 HOURS AFTER THE TREATMENT. /AUTHOR/
