STUDDED TIRE PAVEMENT WEAR REDUCTION AND REPAIR

RESULTS OBTAINED FROM TESTING TO DETERMINE PAVEMENT WEAR CAUSED BY STUDDED TIRES AT THE G. A. RIEDESEL PAVEMENT TESTING FACILITY DURING THE PERIOD FROM FEBRUARY 11 TO MAY 4, 1972 ARE REPORTED. THE PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS SHOWED MORE RESISTANCE TO STUDDED TIRE WEAR THAN THE ASPHALT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. ALL THE STEEL FIBROUS CONCRETE SECTIONS SHOWED SUPERIOR SKID RESISTANCE VALUES AS WEAR PROGRESSED. THE BILSONITE PRODUCT REJUVENATING TREATMENT, USED ON TWO OF THE ASPHALT PAVEMENTS, SHOWED LITTLE OR NO IMPROVEMENT OVER THE REGULAR ASPHALT CONCRETE SECTIONS. THE SURFACE MATERIALS SHOWING THE GREATEST RESISTANCE TO STUDDED TIRE WEAR TESTED WERE THE POLYMER CEMENT AND POLYMER FLYASH CONCRETES. THEIR SKID RESISTANCE VALUES DECREASED DRASTICALLY WITH WEAR.
