Final Report - MULTITURF (Innovation in multifunctional artificial turf fields for sports: Development of new concepts using a new predictive design tool)

Project ID: 16456
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the MULTITURF project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, MULTITURF aimed to develop cheaper, safer multi-use sports fields that delivered consistent performance.

The main objectives included the development of a design tool for selecting the technical properties of a sport and determining its impact on an artificial pitch. The tool was also used for determining the impact of the artificial playing surface on the human body.

The report outlines the development of new concepts for artificial turf pitches that enable multiple uses. Innovations in materials and field construction technologies were also described. Brief concluding remarks complete the report.
