In response to the UAE Surface Transport Master Plan 2030 objective to create an integrated road safety system, the Abu Dhabi City Municipality and Department of Transport are constantly looking for technologies to reduce high number of traffic accident fatalities. One important factor that influences road driving safety is skid resistance of an asphalt pavement. Recent studies have indicated that high ambient and pavement surface temperatures can influence significantly the reliability of skid resistance measurements. Motivated by this, this project aims to develop reliable experimental and computational techniques to account for the influence of asphalt pavement temperature on skid resistance measurements in the UAE. This will be achieved on the basis of laboratory tests, field tests, and advanced computational techniques. The particular advantage of this approach is that for any given pavement surface the influence of environmental and operating conditions on skid resistance can be evaluated and quantified.
