A Study of Temperature of the Road Surface with Performance Braking Distance

Supot Seesawang, Supornchai Utainarumol

Abstract


This research aims to study 1) the relationship between temperature on road surface and friction of road surface. 2) the relationship between temperature on road surface and braking efficiency. Correlation among factors related to temperature on road surface were studied. The friction of road surface was measured using continued Fixed Slip Tester with the Skid (ASFT T – 10) and test car for braking distance with testing speed 60 kilometer per hour. The effect level per braking distance was analyzed. The results of this research are as follows: 1) The influence of temperature on the friction of road surface is less than other factors such as traffic volume and pavement lifetime. 2) The influence of temperature on braking distance is less than other factors such as traffic volume and pavement lifetime. Moreover, the braking distance increase as these factor increase.
