  • 32. Materials Science & Technolog y Conclusions  Abrasion related particles and resuspended road dust were mainly found in the 1-10 µm particle size range.  In the street canyon and along the motorway, abrasion sources and vehicle induced dust resuspension made up about 50% of the traffic related PM10 emissions.  Brake wear and resuspension were found to be more mass relevant in the street canyon than road wear and tire wear.  Road wear was found to be of minor importance for intact pavements, but damaged pavements can lead to substantial road wear emissions.  Vehicle induced resuspension is not strictly correlated with traffic numbers but is strongly influenced by available road dust. Difficult to describe with conventional emission factor models.  Tyre wear seems to be of minor importance. R. Gehrig; International Workshop Urban Air Quality, Barcelona, July 2013
