TINING VS CARPET DRAGGING FOR TEXTURING PCC PAVEMENTS

The objective of this study is to determine if carpet dragging is a viable alternative to tining as a method for texturing PCC pavement surfaces. This study will concentrate on noise level (exterior and interior) changes, skid resistance, and an alternate method of determining texture characteristics. 3rd Evaluation: The target average texture depth value was 0.80 mm or 0.031". The average sand patch depth was 0.092" for the tined sections and 0.034" for the carpet drag sections. The average skid number of the tined section was 53.8 (ribbed tire) and 52.5 for the carpet drag sections. To date, the carpet drag sections have similar skid numbers as the tining sections while generating about 30% less noise.
