Título Performance of slippery and slip-resistant footwear in different wintry weather conditions measured in situ
Información bibliográfica Oct. 2009, Vol.47, No.8, p.1195-1200. Illus. 31 ref.
Resumen In Finland, about 70,000 pedestrians are injured each year in fall accidents, two-thirds of which occur when the walking surface is covered by ice or snow. This study was carried out to evaluate the usability of a portable slip simulator for measuring slipperiness of walkways during winter conditions and to assess slip resistance of different footwear. The simulator was found to be a reliable tool, potentially enabling the Finnish meteorological office to provide warnings of very slippery days.
