Evaluation of Friction
Characteristics of Wearing Course
Mixtures in Louisiana
 
Background
Pavement Surface Friction is a critical issue to highway safetyand pavement performance.
Each year traffic accidents cause nearly 2.5 million injuries and over 41,000 fatalities.
approximately 25% of all crashes and 13.5% of fatal crashesoccurred under wet pavement conditions
Surface friction is generated as the tire rolls or slides over the pavement surface.
 
 
Background (contd..)
The friction coefficient can be affected by
Vehicle and driver characteristics
e.g.,
 
speed, braking system, tire condition, driver controls
Pavement surface characteristics
 
Material properties, e.g. aggregates, binder, gradations, etc.
Surface Textures (Micro-/Macro-texture, Mega-texture/unevenness)
Other conditions (e.g. temperature, wet or dry, clean or dirty)
Microtexture
and
Macrotexture
are extremely important pavement in the development of surface friction
