|Abstract:||This paper describes the development of a laboratory test procedure to assess the weathering effects of a wet tropical climate on wear resistance of the concrete pavements. An accelerated weathering model was fabricated to provide cyclic wetting and drying treatment in a laboratory simulation of the weathering effects of Singapore's climate. The effects of weathering on wear resistance were evaluated by means of a rotating drum test conducted on plain cement mortar specimens with and without weathering treatment. The study showed that cyclic wetting and drying weathering significantly reduced the wear resistance of cement mortar test specimens.|
