Abstract

Walkway-safety tribometers. (WSTs) are instruments that measure the friction between a test foot and a walkway surface. Different WSTs, because they measure friction in different ways, often give different results in a givensituation. This creates 'marketplace confusion', which has caused the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Committee on Standards (COS) to mandate that ASTM Committee F-13 on Safety and Traction for Footwear implement 'generic' standards, which do not reference proprietary equipment. Acommittee appointed by the ASTM Board of Directors, chaired by the incoming ASTM Chairman of the Board, was formed to assist Committee F-13 in this task. This paper presents the evolution of WST standards and discusses progress in the development of a set of 'generic' WST standards. (C) 2001 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
