Investigating the Effect of Temperature Variations on the Measured Airfield Pavement Skid Resistance

Airfield temperatures can range between -30 °C and +50 °C. Therefore, it is critical to correct the measured skid resistance values for field temperatures. To achieve this, several asphalt slabs were prepared and tested using the British Pendulum Tester. A special fluid was used to conduct skid resistance tests at below freezing temperatures. Test results were used to develop correction models for skid resistance under temperature variations, to be used by airfield operators. The results of this research are unique and important where it is the first time to include below freezing temperatures in skid resistance measurements and correction models.
