2015 - NZ - Flushing in Chip Seal Pavements
Flushing is the process whereby chipseal texture depth is lost over time, resulting in a loss of skid resistance. It is the single most important reason for resealing on New Zealand state highways. This report details research carried out from 2012 to 2015. In the first part of the work the aim was to identify and investigate the physical mechanisms causing flushing. The aim of the second part of the project, undertaken by researchers at the University of Auckland, was to use pavement condition data to develop a model to predict the rate of flushing progression in chipseals.
