  • Bertil Olofsson


At the Department of Textile Technology we have been working together with a group from the Orthopedic-Surgical Hospital Department at the Gothenburg University on relationships between injuries in sports as football and properties of ground as well as shoes, preventive tapes etc. The present paper presents some fundamental rheology of the ground and its context with the rheological activity of the human being (player, athlet).
