Description

Knowledge Exchange Microgrant (Strathclyde University, with matching industry funding, total £5000)
Title: An investigation of the performance of mesh reinforced turf systems for sports fields.
The project involves a demonstration of the efficacy of the Netlon Advanced Turf System developed by Conwed Global Netting Solutions. The laboratory work was not of a routine nature and required small-scale simulations of loadings on sports fields and measurements of performance, as well as comparisons with unreinforced and other turf systems.

Key findings

The project demonstrated the effectiveness of mesh reinforced turf systems in improving the durability of sports surfaces and the conditions under which the Conwed system is most effective.
