Pedestrian Fall Safety Assessments : Improved Understanding on Slip Resistance Measurements and Investigations

This book examines pedestrian shoe-floor slip resistance from an engineering standpoint in order to better understand friction and wear behavior. This analysis includes an extensive investigation into the surface properties of shoes and flow, and the measurement of dynamic friction and other mechani...
