“μ-Deck: Implementation of a New COF Meter for US Navy

Existing US Navy Coefficient of Friction (CoF) meters are insensitive and cannot differentiate surfaces which have obvious differences in nonskid CoF. A new CoF meter, the m-Deck, was evaluated to determine CoF measurement effectiveness and temperature sensitivity. Both laboratory and field testing were performed over various nonskid systems at numerous temperatures. The results indicate that the m-Deck has significant temperature dependence, but also a high degree of accuracy. The collected data is used to establish acceptance criteria for newly installed nonskid.
