    The most important factors were (1) the avail- ability of pavement sections with the desired textures, (2) the interest and willingness of SHAs to assist in evaluating the test sections (e.g., coordinating traffic control, conducting fric- tion testing, and providing pavement and other relevant data on the test sections), (3) the age of or amount of traf- fic accumulated on the test sections, and (4) the geograph- ical . the pavement surface texture thereby causing loss of aircraft braking capability and directional control when runways are wet. In October , the FAA embarked on a 2-year program to conduct friction and pavement evaluation surveys at airports ( runways) within the contiguous United States.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Howerter, E.D. Computer evaluation of pavement texture. Washington, D.C.: The Administration ; Springfield, Va. A satisfactory pavement surface should exhibit good friction and texture depth to reduce roadway highway accidents.

There have been numerous research efforts by different countries and agencies to better understand the behavior of friction testing devices and the influence of texture, speed, and other external conditions on their by: 2.

-- A system for pavement macrotexture measurement developed by the Naval Surface Weapons Center, U.S. Navy, was evaluated. This system utilizes the. In a recently completed study involving a computer evaluation of pavement texture, it was determined that texture smaller than mm could be con- sidered microtexture and texture greater than mm could be classified as by: Evaluation of pavement skid resistance using high speed texture measurement.

Skid resistance is an important parameter for highway designs, construction, management, maintenance and safety.

Pavement Design and Materials is a practical reference for both students and practicing engineers that explores all the aspects of pavement engineering, including materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economic analysis.

Historically, numerous techniques have been applied by a multitude of jurisdictions dealing with roadway by: which causes the decrease in pavement friction when a film of water covers the road surface and the effect of pavement surface texture on it.

As a result, efforts in better understanding of effect of pavement texture, and its incorporation in the pavement safety equation appears to be a promising direction (Noyce et al., ). Texture Pavement surface texture is defined as the deviation of a pavement surface from a true planar surface, with a texture wavelengt h less than ft ( m), and divided into micro- macro- and mega-texture (Sandberg, ).

It is commonly described in terms of wavelength and amplitude. Texture data obtained from existing systems are restricted on either a small portion on pavement surface or one line-of-sight profile, and the currently used texture indicators, such as Mean Profile Depth (MPD), and Mean Texture Depth (MTD) only reveal partial aspects of texture by: 2.

Guide to Pavement Technology Part 5: Pavement Evaluation and Treatment Design provides advice for the investigation of existing sealed road pavements and the selection and design of pavement strategies/treatments.

It covers pavement investigation, testing and evaluation, identification of causes and modes of distress, and treatment options. Knowledge of pavement technology is of Cited by: 6. 2 MEASURING TEXTURE OF ASPHALT PAVEMENT USING DIGITAL IMAGE TECHNIQUE Based on the DSM, an evaluation of pavement texture can be implemented.

Vijay, Hui Li & VS Hota GangaRao Pages: The categories for texture wavelengths include megatexture (50 to mm), macrotexture ( to 50 mm), and microtexture (tire-pavement noise by mega and macrotextures.

Skid resistance, however, may be contributed to by all three, especially microtexture. Evaluation of Pavement Surface Micro- and Macro-Texture.

The effect of the aggregate texture (micro-texture) and the effect of the texture of compacted hot mix asphalt (macro-texture) on the skid resistance of the highway surface are well recognized. 19 CHAPTER 4. PAVEMENT FRICTION AND SURFACE TEXTURE PAVEMENT FRICTION Definition Pavement friction is the force that resists the relative motion between a vehicle tire and a pavement surface.

This resistive force, illustrated in figure 8, is generated as the tire rolls or slides over the pavement surface. Figure 8. Convolutional Neural Network for Asphalt Pavement Surface Texture Analysis: Convolutional neural network August Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering.

Macrotexture is closely related to the distribution and gradation of aggregates, while microtexture is dependent on aggregate morphological characteristics [10,11,12,13].The traditional test methods for texture property of asphalt pavements mainly include sand patch test and British pendulum by: Tire Pavement Noise and Safety Performance, PCC Surface Texture Technical Working Group: FHWA-SA Construction of Portland Cement Concrete Pavements - Particpant's Manual: FHWA-HI Air Void Analyzer Evaluation: FHWA-SA Portland Cement Concrete Materials: FHWA-HI Pavement textures.
