Evaluation of pavement patching materials was accomplished by simulating potholes in the surface, repairing the holes and subjecting them to traffic loadings. Loadings were applied utilizing the Pavement Test Facility which applies truck tire and various passenger car tire types simultaneously. Measurements of strength, skidding potential and pavement performance resulted in a comparative evaluation. Tread wear and protrusion of studs in the tires was determined.
