This report contains guidelines and recommendations for managing and designing for friction on highway pavements. The contents of this report will be of interest to highway materials, construction, pavement management, safety, design, and research engineers, as well as others concerned with the friction and related surface characteristics of highway pavements.2.2.4 Fr ct on and Texture Measurement Methods Overview The measurement of pavement friction and texture has been ... For friction-testing alone, there are several commercial devices that can operate at fixed or variable slip, at speeds up to 100 ... and under variable test tire conditions, such as load, size, tread design and construction, and inflation pressure. ... The manually operated BPT provides an indicator of friction through the swinging of a pendulum-based rubber slider andanbsp;...
