DETAILED PROCEDURES FOR CALIBRATION OF THE BRITISH PORTABLE SKID RESISTANCE TESTER

Procedures which ARRB employs when calibrating pendulum friction testers against the ARRB reference instrument are described in detail. Certain instrument features must be adjusted, or repaired where necessary, and the spring tension set to a value calculated for each instrument. The instrument is cross-checked on a prescribed range of test surfaces against the ARRB reference instrument. Details are given of the criteria which an instrument must meet before it is classed as acceptable. (A) /TRRL/
