LONG TERM OBSERVATION OF THE SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF AN EXPERIMENTAL ROAD. PART 1 - MEASUREMENTS 1978-1980

LANGFRISTIGE BEOBACHTUNG DES GRIFFIGKEITSVERHALTENS VON VERSUCHSSTRECKEN; I. TEIL: MESSUNGEN 1978 - 1980

EXPERIMENTAL ROADS LAID BETWEEN 1973 AND 1975 AS PART OF RESEARCH INTO THE INITIAL SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE, THE SURFACINGS OF WHICH HAVE DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS, ARE TO BE SUBJECT TO FURTHER OBSERVATION FOR DURABILITY, DEFORMATION RESISTANCE AND DEVELOPMENT OF SKIDDING RESISTANCE. IT IS PLANNED TO CARRY OUT SKIDDING RESISTANCE MEASUREMENTS TWICE YEARLY BY THE STANDARD LOCKED WHEEL METHOD. STUDIES OF THE WEAR AND DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR OF THE EXPERIMENTAL ROAD SECTIONS ARE ALSO BEING CONDUCTED.
