1.1 This guide describes the evaluation, calibration, and correlation of Test Method E2340 friction measurement systems. The evaluation, calibration and correlation processes; using the specialized equipment, instruments, pavement surfaces, trained personnel, and approved facilities2; are performed using the procedures described below. 1.2 This guide is offered as a process to identify and quantify the variables that affect system performance, to minimize the effect of these variables, and to provide a means to relate Test Method E2340 friction measurement systems to reference skid measurement systems. 1.4 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. 1.5 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.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
