Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 August 2009
Status: inactive
Page Count: 11
ICS Code (Road construction materials): 93.080.20
significance And Use:

The knowledge of side force friction serves as an additional tool in characterizing pavement surfaces. Side force friction data alone may be of limited value in determining the suitability of... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the side force friction of paved surfaces utilizing a device commonly called a Mu-Meter.

1.2 This test method utilizes a measurement obtained by pulling the Mu-Meter, containing two freely rotating test wheels angled to the direction of motion, over a pavement surface at a constant speed while the test wheels are under a constant static load. This method provides data of the side force friction (and other data) along the whole length of the test surface being tested which is applied to a variety of computerized algorithms enabling the production of results including (but not limited to) rolling averages, numeric and graphical representations, friction mapping and reports formatted in the layout approved by a wide variety of national airport regulators.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See also Section 6.
