A Study on Texture and Acoustic Properties of Cold Laid Microsurfacings

Slurry microsurfacing is an economical maintenance intervention that provides effective skid resistance and surface evenness in a thin layer, thus improving the road safety. Researchers aimed to develop an innovative application of slurry seal, capable of gathering in a single material some technical solutions for various functional and environmental aspects. The purposes of this intervention are: restoring skid resistance, sealing surface cracking, reducing tire/pavement noise, adding crumb rubber from tires as a recycling material and reducing atmospheric emissions using the cold technique. A 3D laser scanner device has been used to evaluate the surface texture and analyze the roughness parameters.
