A Laboratory Experiment in Evaluating Means of Imparting a Harsh Texture to Portland Cement Concrete Surfaces

Report No: 70-R12

Published in 1970

About the report:

The purpose of this study was to explore methods of obtaining a rough, durable texture on test slabs fabricated in the laboratory in an attempt to provide high skid resistance. The exploration involved the investigation of types of texture, time of texturing, and the effects of coarse aggregates and curing methods.
