Safety Aspects Related to Low Noise Road Surfaces

Objectives: To develop a classification procedure combined with a conformity of production testing method, to test and specify road construction and maintenance techniques and to develop a procedure for cost-benefit analysis of noise abatement measures.

The Effect of Skid Resistance and Texture on Crash Risk

Objectives: To analyse New Zealand state highway data for the period 1997 to 2002 to provide a preliminary indication as to what road condition and road geometry factors affect RTI rate and to better identify the important predictor variables and how they influence RTI rate.

Texture analysis of aggregates for wearing courses in asphalt

Objectives: The relationship between adherence and aggregate texture is analysed, using superficial geometrical profiles, by means of both aggregate descriptors and the power spectral density function (PSD).

Heavy Vehicle Safety Research

Objectives: To investigate procedures used to evaluate road conditions; determine the criteria, if any, used to qualify road conditions, identify, amongst those used, whether they are based on friction or not; and characterize the actions required based on the specific values of the criteria used.

Incorporating Road Safety into Pavement Management: Maximizing Surface Friction for Road Safety Improvements

Objectives: This research explored the relationship between asphalt mix design, skid friction, and roadway safety. Initial tasks attempted to find a relationship between road skid resistance (friction) and RTI frequency, particularly wet weather RTIs.
