Enhanced Hydroplaning Prediction Tool

The objective of this research study is to enhance current hydroplaning prediction (HP) program. The new version of the HP program should be able to calculate and output the hydroplaning potential continuously along lengths of roadway based on either roadway geometry design inputs or automatically collected MPSV and texture data. It should also have the capability of analyzing multiple proposed lanes (planes) and multiple storm intensities at one time, and integrating the hydroplane potential calculation with a geographic information system (GIS) application for an overall view of hydroplaning risk contour plots.
