LOW-SPEED FRICTION DEVICE

APPAREIL DE FROTTEMENT A PETITE VITESSE

DURING THE FIRST PHASE OF THE RESEARCH, A NEW DEVICE AND TEST METHOD WERE DEVELOPED TO MEASURE THE NON-SKID PROPERTIES OF SURFACINGS FOR PEDESTRIANS. BECAUSE FRICTION AGAINST RUBBER REPRESENTS ONLY ONE ASPECT OF THE QUALITY OF THE SURFACING, MEASUREMENTS WILL BE MADE WITH MATERIALS NORMALLY USED UNDER THE SHOES OF PEDESTRIANS.
