AN INVESTIGATION OF SKID RESISTANCE IN MISSOURI

THIS STUDY WAS A COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION OF SKID RESISTANCE IN MISSOURI USING A TWO WHEEL SKID TRAILER CONFORMING TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF ASTM E 274-65T (K. J. LAW ENGINEERS MODEL 965A) MEASURING BOTH SLIP AND SKID RESISTANCE. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO STANDARDIZE TEST RESULTS FOR THE MANY ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS PRESENT DURING A SKID TEST. SKID RESISTANCE OF SURFACES CONTAINING VARIOUS FINE AND COARSE AGGREGATES WAS ALSO STUDIED. COMPARISONS WERE MADE BETWEEN THE OCCURRENCE OF WET PAVEMENT ACCIDENTS AND PAVEMENT SKID RESISTANCE. PROCEDURES FOR TEXTURING PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS WERE INVESTIGATED, IN ADDITION TO CHANGES IN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE MIX DESIGNS AND USE OF SPECIAL AGGREGATE MATERIALS TO IMPROVE SKID RESISTANCE IN BITUMINOUS MIXES. A TRANSVERSE WIRE COMB TEXTURE FOR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS, A REDUCTION OF THE USE OF SPECIAL LOCALIZED MATERIALS (TRAP ROCK, BLAST FURNACE SLAG, EXPANDED SHALE, AND JOPLIN CHAT) TO A LIMITED EXTENT ARE PROCEDURES WHICH HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED AS A RESULT OF THIS INVESTIGATION.
