ROAD SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS AND SKIDDING RESISTANCE

THE FACTORS INFLUENCING THE SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF ROAD SURFACES AT HIGH AND LOW SPEEDS ARE DISCUSSED, AND REFERENCE IS MADE TO THE USE OF ACCIDENT STATISTICS AND THE LOCKED- WHEEL BRAKING TEST AND THE PORTABLE SKID-RESISTANCE TESTER. THE NEED TO IMPROVE DENSE SURFACINGS IS RECOGNISED AND THE ROAD RESEARCH LABORATORY HAS MADE PROPOSALS FOR A FULL- SCALE ROAD EXPERIMENT, TO EXAMINE METHODS OF OBTAINING DURABLE BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS WITH TEXTURES SUITABLE FOR HIGH-SPEED ROADS. /RRL/
