Soil Engineering/Geotechnical Engineering in Cricket Pitch (Turfs/square grounds)
#1
Hi,

I dont know how many amongst you all are aware of Cricket game and muddy or grassy pitches also called turfs but surprisingly each pitch(turf) as unique charachterstics and even some of the stadiums are known for the type of their turfs i.e turfs in subcontinent are mostly slow and not so much advantageous for fast bowlers where as pitches in Australia are known to be fast and bouncy thus making it advantageous for fast bowlers....

My concern being an engineer are :

1. What kind of engineering they use to make so variety of pitches?
2. If it is soil engineering, then is it more like soil engineering used in foundations of buildings/civil infrastructure or like soil sciences used in agriculture?
3. Is there any civil engineering organisation issuing any specification for construction of such turfs?

Your participation in this discussion is highly appreciated...

Thanx
