This report is an account of a documentary study concerning the effects of various weather and road conditions (friction) and winter road maintenance measures.
Swedish studies are emphasised as well as accident investigations. A total of 115 references are included.
Ice and snow on streets and roads create problems for those who use them. To minimize these problems, road maintenance personnel undertake operative measures such as snow removal and measures to counteract slippery roads (salting and sanding). These operative measures greatly affect safety, accessibility, vehicle costs and the environment and are very costly for road maintenance organizations. Therefore, the development of effective strategies and methods for operative measures is a matter of some urgency, as is the gathering of knowledge about the effects and costs that different winter standards entail for road users and road maintenance organisations. It is also vital to develop methods for the efficient measurement of achieved standards, e.g. described as smoothness, friction and road conditions.
The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
The original work on speed reducing road humps was carried out in the 1970's at TRL and was based on ...
