In a nutshell: This study looked into the dynamics of wear and tear to pedestrian walkways to understand how wear develops and its impacts on slip-resistant performance. Friction tests were conducted and both qualitative and quantitative investigations carried out by surface analysis and microscopic observation. Changes to the surface were caused by direct and indirect wear which significantly affected slip-resistant function. The study may have potential applications for design improvements of floors and walkways to prevent slip and fall incidents.
