    Different pavement surfaces can show different light reflection based on their texture characteristics. It seems that worn texture which has lower microtexture has higher light reflection. As a future work, a method can be developed which evaluates pavement texture characteristics based on different light reflection of surfaces. The heat-reflective coating for asphalt pavement is a functional layer applied on pavement surfaces to reduce heat storage in the pavement via reflecting sunlight, thus inhibiting pavement temperature rise. The objective of this study was to analyze the environmental thermal effect of the self-developed reflective coating, namely, functionally graded nanocomposite reflective coatings, for.

    If the surface was a perfect mirror and if the surface normal, N, aligned with H then the light and eye were in the right position for perfect mirror reflection. If the surface was rougher, then the specular amount was a function of what percentage was pointed in the direction of H. Again this led to a function of the dot product (N.H).

The primary structural difference between a rigid and flexible pavement is the manner in which each type of pavement distributes traffic loads over the subgrade.

However, the increased reflected radiation in an urban area might be directed and absorbed.

S is the luminaire spacing, and W is the width of the traffic lane. (CIE, ;CEN, a) Illuminance on a road surface relies only on the amount of light from luminaires reaching the road.

Reflective coating for cool pavement is one of the most effective ways to reduce pavement temperature, save energy, improve human thermal comfort and mitigate surface urban heat island effect.

However, combined natural weathering condition affect the optical properties of reflective cool pavement coatings and often cause performance. Reflective surfaces can deliver high solar reflectance (the ability to reflect the visible, infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun, reducing heat transfer to the surface) and high thermal emittance (the ability to radiate absorbed, or non-reflected, solar energy).

Reflective surfaces are a form of geoengineering. The most well-known type of reflective surface is the "cool roof". A highway pavement is a structure consisting of superimposed layers of processed materials above the natural soil sub-grade, whose primary function is to transmit the applied vehicle loads to the sub-grade.

There two main types of road pavement used namely Rigid and Flexible Pavement. The albedo measurements for this study were performed mainly on nine 4 m by 4 m (13 ft by 13 ft) test sections constructed during the summer of at the University of California Pavement Center (UCPRC) test facilities in Davis, California (as shown in Fig.

2).The summary of each test section along with surface Light reflecting characteristics of various pavement surfaces book design and other characteristics is provided in Table by: The cool pavement with the function of oriented heat conduction was designed to improve its deformation resistance and decrease the heat island effect.

Raised pavement markers (RPMs) are among the common safety features of roads, playing an important role in preventing and reducing traffic crashes. Visual observations revealed that the concrete pavement sections containing high-volumes of Class F fly ash (35 to 67 percent) performed well in the field with only minor surface scaling.

Its value is 3 × 10 8 ms → When light falls on a surface, following may happen: (i) Reflection (ii) Refraction (iii) Absorption Reflection → Bouncing back of light when it strikes on a polished surface like mirror.

Laws of Reflection (i) Angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. The engineering level regression reflective material is the most basic and the amount of a variety of maximum, inverse reflection coefficient up to 70cd/lux•m² it, the outdoor life of up to 3~5 years; high level is a new structure of the reflective material in 70s the United States launched 3M, its inverse reflection coefficient is cd/lux.

“A pavement is one type of hard surface made from durable surface material lay down on an area which is intended to carry vehicular or foot traffic”.

its main function is to distribute the applied vehicle loads to the sub-grade through different layers. The road structure should provide sufficient skid resistance, proper riding quality, favorable light reflecting characteristics, and low.

Light - Light - Reflection and refraction: Light rays change direction when they reflect off a surface, move from one transparent medium into another, or travel through a medium whose composition is continuously changing. The law of reflection states that, on reflection from a smooth surface, the angle of the reflected ray is equal to the angle of the incident ray.

Moreover, aggregate surface texture affects the frictional performance of pavement surface (BensonSengoz et al.Greer and Heitzman In case of hydraulic cement concrete.

Most brands of paint come in several sheens, and both latex and oil-based paints are available in different sheen levels. Gloss sheens have the highest light-reflective characteristics.

Next are semigloss sheens; then satin, eggshell, or low-lustre sheens; and then flat or matte sheens. To mimic the actual process, friction and texture measuring devices are needed to quantify surface deterioration at different polishing intervals that reflect different stages of the pavement life.

The pavement structure should be able to provide a surface of acceptable riding quality, adequate skid resistance, favorable light reflecting characteristics, and low noise pollution. The ultimate aim is to ensure that the transmitted stresses due to wheel load are sufficiently reduced, so that they will not exceed bearing capacity of the sub.

Cool pavement is a road surface that uses additives to reflect solar radiation unlike conventional dark pavement. Conventional dark pavements contribute to urban heat islands as they absorb 80–95% of sunlight and warm the local air.

Cool pavements are made with different materials to increase albedo, thereby reflecting shortwave radiation out of the atmosphere. Light reflecting characteristics of various pavement surfaces.

Published in: .Characteristics of paint also affect color perception. Paint's light-reflectance value – the amount of light it reflects – can play a key role in choosing the right color for certain spaces, especially those that don't receive a lot of natural sunlight.

Lighter tinted paints have higher light .Flexible pavements are those pavements which reflect the deformation of subgrade and the subsequent layers to the surface.

Flexible, usually asphalt, is laid with no reinforcement or with a specialized fabric reinforcement that permits limited flow or re positioning of the roadbed under ground changes.

The design of flexible pavement is based on load.
