Skid resistance is a major concern of the safety engineer since wet pavement conditions are present for approximately 18% of the total accidents in Iowa according to studies by the Traffic and Safety Department. Many of these accidents may be influenced by the low skid resistant quality of the pavement. The size, shape, type, and arrangement of the concrete's particles interrelate with each other in a complex manner to give us frictional resistance. The purpose of this investigation was to determine which method of texturing provides the best skid resistance properties on portland cement concrete pavement.
