Research Update – Skid and Abrasion Resistance of Concrete Pavements with Manufactured Sands

Presentation by Vute Sirivivatnanon on Manufactured Sands - Research from Sydney Forum May 2012

Research objectives:

To establish the influence of manufactured sands on the intrinsic skid (after wear) and abrasion resistance of concrete pavements, and possible correlation with some properties of manufactured sands and concrete.

In collaboration with RMS, start examine how the intrinsic skid property of concrete influences pavements performance (SCRIM) recognising that field performance is influenced by both the intrinsic properties as well as other factors such as finishing, macro texture and road geometry.
