THE PART PLAYED BY MICRO-TEXTURE IN SKIDDING RESISTANCE

The influence of the frequency-damping characteristics of the rubber and the size, shape and distribution of the scales of texture of the road surface on friction is examined. Laboratory results of the measurement and analysis of the "micro-texture" of road stones and the mathematical prediction from them of the coefficient of friction with rubber is presented. /Author/
