    If you feel you cannot stop in time, turn your vehicle away from the potential collision. • Speed up. Accelerating may sometimes be the best or only way to avoid a collision. If a collision looks possible, turn away from oncoming traffic, even if it means leaving the road. Drive, rather than skid, off the road, allowing for more Size: KB. Anchor: #i Section 4: Pavement Drainage Anchor: #i Design Objectives. The objective of urban storm drainage is to provide safe passage of vehicle traffic by collecting stormwater from the roadway, and to convey it safely to an adequate receiving body while preventing damage to adjacent private properties or undue risk to pedestrian traffic during the .

    Pavement–tire friction is the force that resists the relative motion between a vehicle tire and a pavement surface (Hall et al., ). This resistive force,illustrated in figure A-4, is generated as the tire rolls or slides over the pavement surface. Rotation.

    L Object = Luminance of the object. L Background = Luminance of the background. If we use the luminance values shown in the upper portion of the figure we can calculate that the lower portion of the cylinder, where the roadway is the background, has a contrast of ()/22 = , with the negative value denoting that it is negative contrast.   For example, they must pay close attention to the type of terrain. Any loose objects, holes, or bumps on the road surface can lead to a loss of control. This can cause you to drop the load or sink and destabilize. The surface you drive on must be rated for four times the amount of weight you will carry.

Influence of roadway surface holes on the potential for vehicle loss of control by Richard A. Zimmer Download PDF EPUB FB2

The only safety related influence of holes identified in this study was dama~e to tires and rims, with the associated potential for an air-out. The incipient points of potential. safety related damage in terms of hole length, depth, vehicle speed and vehicle type has been defined and presented in this study.

Prominent among these issues were (a) tire–pavement available friction, (b) influence of potholes and road surface roughness, (c) water accumulations, and (d) influence of pavement edge drop-offs. These issues were important because these conditions can never be completely eliminated in all roadways all the time.

THE INFLUENCE OF ROADWAY SURFACE DISCONTINUITIES ON SAFETY. INTRODUCTION-CHAPTER 1. Safety on the highways is a function of many variables, include the condition of drivers, vehicles, weather, and the highway. The first two conditions are not in the province of this report, which is limited to a discussion of discontinuities in roadway surfaces Cited by: 2.

And if it is dark with street light off or with no street light, then the odds will be times (*) higher. The impacts of road surface condition In Table 3 and Table 4, the coefficient for SURFACE isand the odd ratio is The value for SURFACE is binary, 0 for dry and 1 or by: 5.

theoretical basis for interpreting the influence of road surface roughness on the vehicle response, as observed from the numerical analyses presented in previous sections. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the : Bernhard Friedrich.

Bruce Wilson, a research scientist with the Minnesota Pollution Control Division, is midway through a satellite survey of impervious surface area in that state. What Wilson has seen thus far is enough to cause significant concern about the state’s growth and development, and the impact of impervious surfaces on the water by: 8 Traffic Control for Roadway Work Operations Work Near the Shoulder Work on or near the shoulder or within 15 feet of the travel way should be signed as if the work were on the road itself since it is in the clear zone and is part of the drivers’ recovery area.

Advance warning isFile Size: 2MB. Adding any slippery surface that reduces the friction between your tyres and the road is inevitably going to have an effect on your braking. In heavy rain aquaplaning can occur where the tyres cannot disperse the water between the tread and the road surface quickly enough leading to a loss of control.

Substances on the road - substances on the road can reduce tractions (be alert for things like sewer covers, paint, wet leaves, etc.) 2. Surface conditions - poor road conditions such as rippled surfaces or potholes contribute to loss of traction.

Be alert when roads are wet can cause a driver to hydroplane. The G-2 adds vehicle speed reported in up to 15 bins, vehicle class in terms of vehicle length reported in up to 6 bins, and a wet/dry pavement indicator. In addition to the previously mentioned traffic parameters, the G-2wx provides chemical analysis for measuring the quantity of anti-icing chemicals on the road surface.

It was found to have a potential effect on road crashes. The visibility, geometry, lane markings, surface condition, and street light facilities have a potential influence on the drivers to perceive and react in a dynamic driving condition. The interaction of road and environment is quite complex with driving behavior and by: 9.

On signalized arterial routes, speed reductions can range from 10 to 25 percent on wet pavement and from 30 to 40 percent with snowy or slushy pavement. Average arterial traffic volumes can decrease by 15 to 30 percent depending on road weather conditions.

If the radius of this path is relatively low for the vehicle speed, contact with a pavement edge drop off can trigger loss of control (much like hitting a large bump while steering a roadway curve).

That a vehicle traveling close to a 2-inch pavement edge drop off is on the knife-edge of disaster is well documented in several references. TRB’s Transportation Research Circular E-C Influence of Roadway Surface Discontinuities on Safety is designed to help highway engineers evaluate roadway maintenance guidelines and priorities.

The report addresses safety issues related to roadway roughness, holes, and bumps; the positive effects of road surface discontinuities; pavement edges; friction variations; water.

INFLUENCE OF ROADWAY DISTURBANCES ON VEHICLE HANDLING. VOLUME I. SUMMARY REPORT. The report summarizes the development of meaningful test procedures and performance parameters that can be used for evaluating vehicle stability against, and/or recovery from, roadway disturbance inputs.

According to the Federal Highway Administration. Polishing is the loss of friction of the concrete pavement surface in the wheelpaths, due to abrasion by tires. Polished wheelpaths look very smooth, even shiny, and feel smooth to the touch. When the wheelpaths become polished, surface friction is considerably reduced and the risk of skidding accidents Size: 2MB.Assessment of Roadway Surface Conditions Using On-Board Vehicle Sensors Project Overview.
