Also known as the British Pendulum Tester, Skid Resistance Tester, Portable Skid Resistance Tester, the instrument which is portable, is designed and constructed to the requirements of BS EN , and can be used to give a direct reading measurement of the following options: Road surface testing.   Pavement skid resistance 1. KUNSAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITYProf. Park Dae-WookVo Viet Hai 2. Skid resistance is the friction developed to prevent a tire from slidingalong the pavement surface. Lower when affected by water due to the phenomenon of hydroplaningand contaminated by mud or loose detritus resulting from the day today usage. Important safety factor - Inadequate skid .

Skid resistance is the force developed when a tire that is prevented from rotating slides on a pavement surface (Highway Research Board, ). Skid resistance is an important pavement safety evaluation parameter because poor skid resistance can lead to skidding accidents and inadequate braking distance during emergency by: TRL Pendulum Friction Tester Developed by the Road Research Laboratory. This outstanding contribution to road safety is the result of over 10 years intensive development by the Road Research Laboratory of the Department of Scientific and Industrial a British Government organization concerned with studying problems that aise in designing, building maintaining and using highways.

portable skid resistance tester – the “pendulum” (Giles , ) – that could be taken to a local site to measure the skid resistance of the road. However, the test vehicles needed support from water tankers if any length of road was to be measured. The BFC method could only measure very short lengths and. The Pendulum Skid Resistance Tester was originally designed in the s in the USA and further developed in the s at the TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) for the testing of road surfaces. The device measures the frictional resistance between a rubber slider mounted on the end of a pendulum arm and the surface to be tested. This provides.

The Portable Skid Resistance and Friction Tester is a direct reading instrument that provides the measure of friction between a skidding tire and wet road/ runway also determines the friction of asphalt and flooring materials.

The Instrument facilitates a road or runway engineer, based on numerical scientific results, information on whether a measure needs to be taken to reduce. The quantity measured with the portable tester has been termed "Skid-resistance" and this correlates with the performance of a vehicle with patterned types braking with.
