Skid resistance and friction tester
This method provides a measure of the skid resistance properties of a surface either in the field or in the laboratory. This method measures the skid resistance of a small area of a surface (approximately 0.01 m2) and this should be considered when deciding its applicability to a pavement surface which may have variable surface characteristics, e.g. block paving.
This apparatus is used for the skid resistance measurement of asphalt pavement and concrete pavement, in order to evaluate the skid resistance of pavement in moist condition.
