PREDICTION OF MEDIUM AND HIGH SPEED SKID RESISTANCE VALUES BY MEANS OF A NEWLY DEVELOPED OUTFLOW METER

An outflow meter is described which was developed at Birmingham University with the object of establishing correlation between those characteristics of surface texture which influence sub-tire drainage and the slope of the friction versus speed curves on a variety of surfaces covering the widest possible range. The authors propose that this instrument and the correlation established, can be used in conjunction with the Transport & Road Research Laboratory pendulum or with friction values obtained with a vehicle at low speed, to predict with reasonable accuracy the friction values to be obtained at any higher speed within the range studied. The philosophy, correlation, reproducibility and convenience of this method are compared with other methods of quantifying surface texture for the same purpose of assessing the friction/speed relationship.
