The objective of this study is to examine ground kinetics early in stance while walking on a contaminated surface and assess the potential of kinetics to quantify risk of slipping. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently registered a new technical report, "Using Variable Angle Tribometers (VAT) for Measurement of the Slip Resistance of Walkway Surfaces.

(a). Standard test method for. There are a number of floor slip test methods established by standards-setting organizations that assess pedestrian slip resistance. Here we’ll review the most widely known and current ones.

They are distinguished by the devices used in the testing. Terms such as DCOF rating, coefficient of friction, slip coefficient, slip resistance rating, and friction coefficient all [ ]. In this paper three slip resistance measuring devices are evaluated: the National Bureau of Standards-Brungraber Tester, the Horizontal Pull Slipmeter, and the Pennsylvania Transportation Author: In-Ju Kim.

The Sigler was invented in the midth century by Percy Sigler of the U.S. National Bureau of Standards (now NIST). British workers modified Sigler’s design to produce the modern pendulum (called the TRRL pendulum tester in the UK), which is for that reason sometimes known in the USA as the “British Pendulum.”.
