ANTI SKID METHODS AND MATERIALS-SKID EFFECTS AND THEIR REMEDIAL METHODS

By Dr. G. Venkata, Rao S. Chandra, Mouli Narendra and Kumar Boddeti

Abstract

Skid resistance is the force developed when a tyre is prevented from rotating along the pavement surface. Skid resistance is thought of as a pavement property, it is the antonym of slipperiness. Among other road surface conditions, slippery pavement during precipitation is of great concern to road safety authorities. Some statistics indicate that the number of accidents increases by up to two folds during rainy conditions. Loss of skid resistance affects driver's ability to control vehicle. In addition to increasing the stopping distance while braking, lower skid resistance reduces steering controllability since both braking and steering depend on tire-pavement friction. In this paper mainly the methods of proper laying of pavements, various materials used to improver skid resistance, measurement of anti skid values such a
