Abstract/Contents:"Artificial turf is increasingly being used in the construction of football pitches. Characteristic for this product is the infill, usually consisting of sand and rubber granulates. A significant role is attributed to it in the performance of the surface. At present, different materials and thicknesses, as well as grain sizes are used with little scientific support about their influence in mechanical and biomechanical properties. However, knowledge from materials science makes reasonable to think that grain morphology will also have a great influence in the field performance. This paper presents a research conducted to assess the influence of different parameters related to infill grain morphology on the mechanical properties of artificial turf, as well as on their wear with use."
