Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the measurement of skid resistance of paved surfaces with a specified full-scale automotive tire.

This test method utilizes a measurement representing the steady-state friction force on a locked test wheel as it dragged over a wetted pavement surface under constant load and at a constant speed while its major plane is parallel to 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 pavement friction measuring methods. The values are intended for use in evaluating the skid resistance a pavement relative to that of other pavements or for evaluating changes in the skid resistance of a pavement with the passage of time. The values are insufficient to determine the distance required to stop a vehicle on either a wet or a dry pavement. They are also insufficient for determining the speed at which control of a vehicle would be lost, because peak and side force friction are also required for these determinations.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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. For specific safety precautions, see Section 5.
