ASTM WK46020

    Revision of F1805 - 12 Standard Test Method for Single Wheel Driving Traction in a Straight Line on Snow- and Ice-Covered Surfaces

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1805 - 16

    Developed by Subcommittee: F09.20 | Committee F09 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Workitem for the purposes of editing F1805 Annex 5 to add an one or more examples clarifying the process of setting loads for ETRTO (non-p-metric, and C) tires. The current annex includes examples for doing this for TRA tires, but the ETRTO manual lists a different process and this should be clarified so that all testers use the same method.
