Evaluation of Friction Measuring Devices

A parametric study is being undertaken to evaluate several friction measuring devices at Transcend using the snowmaking equipment for typical deicing and anti-icing test sections. The research will contribute to the current knowledge base about friction during winter conditions. Field tests will take place during the 2011-12 winter season.
