Surface Roughness and Rollability Research
Thursday, August 3, 2017
2:30 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. EST
Webinar Series: Accessibility Online
from the U.S. Access Board, Great Lakes ADA Center, ADA National Network
The next webinar in the U.S. Access Boards free monthly series will take place August 3 from 2:30 – 4:00 (Eastern Time) and cover the results from a Board study that assessed how the roughness of pathway surfaces impacts wheelchair travel. Researchers at the University of Pittsburghs Human Engineering Research Laboratories used subject testing to measure body vibrations resulting from travel across various types of bumpy or uneven surfaces, including existing sidewalks and simulated surfaces. The results were used to develop a new American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard for measuring the roughness of pedestrian surfaces. Presenters will review the study findings as well as the resulting ASTM standard.
