pavement surface defects, but also change the surface character-istics of pavement and therefore affect pavement surface friction performance. Nevertheless, such information is currently not available but is essential for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to evaluate the effectiveness of pave-ment preservation surface treatments. The Little Book of Tire Pavement Friction Version Submitted for Review and Comment Pavement Surface Properties Consortium September Gerardo W. Flintsch hysteresis and adhesion are related to surface characteristics and tire properties (Hall et al. ). These two key components of tire pavement friction are illustrated in Figure Size: KB. Henry, J.J. () Evaluation of Pavement Friction Characteristics.

AUTHORS: Behrouz Mataei, Hamzeh Zakeri, Mohsen Zahedi, Fereidoon Moghadas Nejad.   This paper evaluates pavement surface characteristics of 21 HFST sites located in 10 states. Pavement cracking, rutting, macro-texture (in terms of mean profile depth) are measured using the 1mm PaveVision3D laser imaging technology while pavement friction is tested by continuous fixed-slip friction tester respectively at the posted highway.

This synthesis report will be of interest to pavement design, construction, management, and research engineers, highway safety officials, and others concerned with pavement friction characteristics. It describes the current state of the practice and discusses the methods used for evaluating wet pavement friction characteristics of new and restored pavements. Created Date: 1/3/ AM. management agencies. Thus, friction evaluation has become an important tool in the management of pavement surfaces [15]. The friction properties of pavement are related to its surface texture characteristics, which are known as macrotexture and microtex-. 26 Factors Affecting Available Pavement Friction The factors that influence pavement friction forces can be grouped into four categoriesâ pavement surface characteristics, vehicle operational parameters, tire properties, and environmental factors. Table 2 lists the various factors comprising each category.

In the last few years it has been given a greater importance to the pavement’s surface characteristics, resulting in the improvement of asphaltic material’s performance and in the arising of new techniques.   The water film thickness is a significant contributing factor when building a correlation between skid number and pavement texture. Persson et al. () studied rubber friction at low sliding velocities on wet rough substrates, where it has been observed that the friction is typically 20%–30% less than that for the corresponding dry surfaces and by using fluid film lubrication theory they. crashes and pavement surfac e characteristics, such as friction and texture.
