This Technical Specification describes a method for determining the skid resistance of a surface by measurement of the longitudinal friction coefficient LFCG. The method provides a measure of the wet skid resistance properties of a bound surface by measurement of the longitudinal friction coefficient using a continuous reading small braked wheel fixed-slip device. The test tyre is dragged over a pre-wetted pavement under controlled speed conditions while the test tyre is parallel to the direction of motion and perpendicular to the pavement. Test speeds can vary from 5 km/h to 130 km/h depending on the application. The measured values can be affected by the test speed. The method has been developed for use on paved areas such as roads and airport runways and may also be used indoors. This Technical Specification covers the operation of the GripTester.
