Abstract/Contents:"The shock absorbing layers perform vital roles in the playing performance and comfort afforded to the users of full size synthetic sport pitches. In the UK the main type in use are in-situ constructed pads comprising shredded/crumbed recycled truck tyres and a binder. The specification for these layers, and the constituent materials used, are known to vary within the industry. Recent field measurements of the playing performance of hockey pitches have raised questions of the designs and consistency of the shockpad layers in the UK today. However, as part of a programme of PhD research ongoing at Loughborough University, a comprehensive review of published literature was performed which highlighted significant gaps in knowledge in the construction and performance of these shockpad layers. This paper reviews the available information regarding shockpads and the factors that reportedly affect their behaviour. The research required to address these knowledge gaps is presented with some preliminary results from ongoing laboratory and field investigations. Recommendations are made for better site quality control, assessment techniques and further research required to understand the interaction of the shockpad and carpet to achieve the required playing performance characteristics."
