Abstract:

The steady increase in traffic is accompanied by greater need for maintenance of the development level of the available infrastructure. The communications means of road, rail, and airfield must become steadily safer, even under winter conditions. Measures that make this possible must be ever faster, more reliable, and safer for the most important transportation routes and critical points. Because of the diversity, in regard to engineering, operational, and economic merits, of the methods presently available or under development, it has occurred to bring out and take stock of what is known in practice and available in the literature for each method. The need for instruction predominated here. The intent is to give an impression of what is possible in antislipperiness measures on road surfaces. Author
