Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to compare "the Gmax hardness values of an ASTM F355 impact tester (the synthetic turf hardness standard) and a Clegg impact tester (the natural turf standard)." Details the methods and materials used in the study. Reports that "Clegg values are lower than predicted F355 values when Clegg values are < 110." States that "it is speculated that the lighter Clegg missile cannot compress the surface as well as the heavier F355 missile when the surface is harder. This gives a higher Clegg Gmax calue because the missile decelerates more quickly than the F355 missile."
