Dear subscribers,

In my research on biomechanical gait analysis in swine I've come across an (old) study, which uses the British Pendulum Number (BPN) as a measure of the floor friction. I'd like to compare these values with values generated by a drag-test device, but a Google-search didn't help much in finding a conversion factor - therefore can anyone help me with a conversion factor for the BPN value, preferably with a reference?

Thanks,
