3D Scanning Technique for Abrasion of Shoe Sole
Date of Issue2017
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
There is significant research on various shoe technologies that enhances the running experience either upon impact with the running surface or the general running comfort. However, the pertinent question still lies insufficiently answered: When is the right time to replace the shoe? How worn out the shoe is? How much the body realigns and compensates due to the altered shoe pattern? The objectives of this research are to develop a link between the color coded abrasion (abrasion of shoe-sole) to actual physical wear and to investigate the effects of striking force and running speed on abrasion.
