This test method does not address all methodological issues (for example, test surface and test foot material selection and preparation, experimental design, or report preparation). 1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
