Abstract: The British pendulum tester is widely used for the measurement of friction characteristics of pavement surfaces. To better understand the complex interaction between the tester and test surface, finite element simulation is applied in this paper to perform detailed analyses of rubber-pavement contact. It offers a useful tool to analyze the test behavior of the British pendulum tester. A three-dimensional finite element model is used to determine not only the skid resistance value of a test surface, but also other contact information which cannot be easily measured experimentally. The findings suggest that the skid resistance measurement of a pavement material can be determined without having to physically perform the British pendulum test. Experimental tests were carried out to verify the results obtained from the model.
