PEDESTRIANS TRANSPORTATION CAPACITY ON DIFFERENT SLIPPERY SURFACES DURING WINTER

Every year there are thousands of pedestrians in Sweden who are injured because of slippery pavements and roadways. To be certain about the function of anti-skid devices and the possibilities of safe pedestrian transportation during winter, the description on how people walk on slippery surfaces outside need to be developed. In this project, the authors have developed a method to describe how people walk on different slippery surfaces with or without different kind of anti-skid devices, and the influence on balance and transportation capacity.
