Artificial turf—Surface properties and player–surface interaction

      Introduction: There is in general a lack of good scientific data available on artificial turf (and natural) system engineering behaviour. The plethora of surface system test methods remains a long way short of replicating even simple human movement and loading patterns. In most player movement studies reported the surface system is poorly described or not controlled such that the data do not add to understanding how surface system response mechanism are mobilized to provide the measured reaction forces or the observed kinematic adjustments.
