Guide to asset management part 5F: skid resistance

Part 5F of Guide to Asset Management contains guidelines for and background notes on the collection of skid resistance data for road network management purposes in Australia and New Zealand. The guidelines define skid resistance as a condition parameter that characterises the contribution that a road surface makes to the level of friction available at the contact patch between a road surface and vehicle tyre during acceleration, braking and cornering manoeuvres. The guidelines describe the different pieces of equipment routinely used to measure skid resistance in Australia and New Zealand and explains the need to view the results obtained alongside surface texture measurements. The guide should be viewed in parallel with the Austroads Guide – Management of Road Surface Skid Resistance (2009). (a)
