HERMES – “Harmonization of European Routine and research Measuring Equipment for Skid Resistance” was a FEHRL-funded pre-normative project that aimed to lay the foundations for consistent European standardisation of skid resistance measurement on roads and runways. Underlying the work was the idea that the project should give the initial impetus to the implementation of a common scale of friction, the so-called EFI (European Friction Index), together with an associated harmonised calibration procedure, in all European countries.
The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
