Standard Test Method for Skid Resistance of Paved Surfaces Using a Full-Scale Tire
|Publication Date:||2 October 1970|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This method covers the measurement of skid resistance of paved surfaces with a specified full-scale automotive tire.
The method utilizes a measurement representing the steady state friction force on a locked test wheel as it is dragged over a wetted pavement surface under constant load and at a constant speed while its major plane is parallel to its direction of motion and perpendicular to the pavement.
The values measured represent the frictional properties obtained with the equipment and procedures stated herein and do not necessarily agree or correlate directly with those obtained by other skid-resistance measuring methods.
NOTE-The values stated in U.S. customary units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalents of U.S. customary units may be approximate.
