Traditional methods of going assessment are qualitative and susceptible to bias and error. This may consist of attempting to assess penetrative force and shear force by feel with a cane-like tool or simple visual assessment. This test method is intended to quantify going assessments by introducing the use of a strain-gauge apparatus that measures the applied vertical force and torque from the rotation of a probe under a given energy input level for a surface.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
