It is entitled "Hydroplaning: The Effect of Water on the Roadway" and was written by the President of Atlanta Engineering Services, Elvin Aycock, PE, PH, PLS, ACTAR.
What this article talks about:
Includes a case study of a real hydroplaning accident we investigated. We'd like to encourage you to share these articles with your friends and colleagues.
Hydroplaning caused by roadway defects
Qualifications of a good hydroplaning expert
Hydroplaning article written by Elvin Aycock for the American Institute of Hydrology.
Ruts cause hydroplaning where the asphalt and the subgrade has failed.
Hydroplaning on roadways while transiting from superelevation to normal crown
Pavement drainage can be a problem in vertical curve sags and in transitions from superelevations to tangent sections.
More pavement drainage problems occur when the centerline crown is destroyed and superelevation transitions hold water.
