Topics of discussion are: (1) technique for evaluating hydroplaning potential of pavements; (2) effects of pavement grooving on friction, braking, and vehicle control; (3) photographic technique for estimating skid number and speed gradients of pavements; (4) relation of accidents and pavement friction on rural, two-lane roads; (5) critique of tentative skid-resistance guidelines; (6) rehabilitation decision model; (7) prediction of rigid-pavement performance from cumulative deflection history; (8) performance of the May's road meter.
