Understanding pendulum data
Use the table to find more information.
Pendulum results are referred to as Pendulum Test Values (PTV) or Slip Resistance Values (SRV).
When the test is operated properly, the PTV should be interpreted as shown in the table.
This table relates to pedestrians walking in a straight line on a level surface. For other activities or inclined surfaces, the table figures will change.
The slider referred to in the test data is also important. There are two sliders commonly used, one for shod pedestrians, one for barefoot. You need to make sure the right slider has been used.
