Keeping friction consistent

Issue 1 2011  •  26 January 2011  •  Frank Holt, ASTM International Committee Member

ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards development organisations in the world-a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy.ASTM Committee E17 on Vehicle-Pavement Systems formed in 1960 to bring together many of the worlds experts in friction and develop standards for data collection, equipment design and data analysis. In December 2010 E17 celebrated its 50th anniversary at its meeting in New Orleans. The Committee celebration was attended by one of the founders of the original committee, Mr. William Goodwin, who served as a Chairman of E17 and also as Chairman of ASTM.
