This seminar will run rhough various national and international reviews and specifications for skid resistance

The topics are the mechanism of the supply and demand of

skid resistance; the relationship between texture depth and

tyre tread depth, research being carried out on the effect of

particle size on skid resistance jointly for the Highways Agency,

Mineral Products Association and Refined Bitumen Association;

a trial on the M8 in Scotland and the resulting specification;

trials of German (low air voids content) stone mastic asphalt

in Norfolk; the French view on texture; the Swedish approach

where the accident rate is good and the Police’s approach to

skid resistance.

Topic: celebrating chemistry, chemistry education, conferences, networking, educational materials, seminars Audience: professional chemists, professors, educators, research scientists, universities, industrial chemists, women chemists, decision makers
