The article analyzes the behavior of asphalt taxiways against slip resistance, assessed by the CRT index, for it has developed a research project for two years based primarily on conducting quarterly auscultation campaigns on pavements 39 preset sections. We have studied eight different bituminous materials employed in the layers of tread: type D, type M, type gradings draining PA continuous and discontinuous type S F and GF cold mixtures, bituminous slurries and surface treatments.

To carry out these works were set the following objectives:

  • Study of the evolution of slip resistance, obtaining a relationship between the CRT value over time and the traffic borne by the road surface.

  • Study of the seasonal variation of slip resistance obtaining a curve of evolution of the measured value of CRT throughout the year.

Finally, we have obtained the International Friction Index IFI from the results obtained in the investigation, carrying out a classification of the different firm studied.

Auscultation, Sliding, Texture, Wearing course, Bituminous mixture, Road safety, Bituminous taxiing, International Friction Index IFI.
