3 Terms and definitions
No terms and definitions are listed in this document.
4 Part 1 – Determination of vertical water infiltration rate

4.1 Method A – laboratory determination of synthetic turf, textile and synthetic sports

surfaces
4.1.1 Principle

Water is ponded in a cylinder into which a test specimen has been sealed. The rate of flow through the

sports surface is measured.

NOTE The test can be performed on a component of a sports surfacing system, e.g. on a shockpad or synthetic

turf carpet, or on a total system.
4.1.2 Apparatus

4.1.2.1 Single ring infiltrometer, of metallic or plastic material with an internal diameter of

300 mm ± 2 mm and a method of sealing the ring to the product to be tested (either mechanically with a

clamp or by use of a sealant).

4.1.2.2 Support grid, for underpinning the product to prevent it distorting when water is poured

into the apparatus. The maximum deformation of the product shall be 5 mm from the outside of the ring

to the centre once water has been added to the ring. Within the ring there should be three parallel

horizontal wires or bars and a central bar perpendicular to the other three. These should be

2,5 mm ± 0,5 mm in width to prevent obstruction of any drainage holes in the sports surface.

4.1.2.4 Round disc, with an internal diameter of 295 mm ± 2 mm and a mass of 5 kg ± 0,25 kg.

4.1.2.5 Spirit level.

4.1.2.6 Graduated scale or other apparatus, enabling the depth of water to be measured to an

accuracy of 1 mm.

4.1.2.7 Temperature measuring apparatus, capable of measuring the temperature of the water to

an accuracy of 1 °C.
4.1.2.8 Geotextile or mesh grid, with a mesh size no greater than 300 microns.
4.1.3 Test specimen

4.1.3.1 Select and prepare a test specimen of the sports surface ensuring that the minimum number

of any drainage holes are visible within the 300 mm ring area. Measure the diameter and location of the

holes within the test piece and record and/or photograph the evidence, which may be included in the

report.
4.1.3.2 Seal or clamp the test specimen into the infiltration ring.

oSIST prEN 12616:2022
prEN 12616:2021 (E)

4.1.3.3 If required, fill the synthetic turf carpet in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Ensure that any pile fibres are visible and that there are no trapped fibres beneath the infill. Compress

each infill layer using the round disc that should be rotated and contra-rotated on the test specimen for

a minimum of five full rotations to ensure compaction and levelling of any the infill. Ensure no additional

pressure is applied to the disc.

4.1.3.4 If a mesh support is used, ensure that there is no sagging of the test specimen that would

result in an uneven head of water over the sample.

4.1.3.5 Wet the test specimen by applying a minimum of 5 l of water through the geotextile or mesh

disc. Ensure there is no leaking of water laterally out of the ring joints; if there is, reseal the test specimen.

4.1.4 Conditioning

Condition the test samples and any relevant infill in the laboratory at a temperature of 23 °C ± 2 °C for a

minimum period of 4 h.
4.1.5 Procedure
Ensure that the test ring is level prior to the start of the test.
Measure the temperature of the water.

Apply water evenly to the test specimen through the mesh or geotextile disc so that the head of water

applied is between 70 mm and 90 mm above the top of the test specimen. For semi-filled synthetic turf

surfaces, the top is defined as the top of the infill layer(s).

Mark the ring at 10 mm ± 1 mm and 30 mm ± 1 mm above the top of the test specimen.

Measure the time taken for the head of water to fall between the 30 mm and 10 mm markers to the

nearest 0,1 s, ensuring that any geotextile or mesh disc is removed prior to the start of the timer. If the

infiltration rate is slow, stop the test at 30 min.
Repeat the test a further two times.
4.1.6 Calculation and expression of results

Calculate the water infiltration rate I , expressed in millimetres per hour (mm/h), from the following

formula:
I = (F C)/ t
A WA A
where
F is the fall of water level (mm);
t is the time taken for the water level to fall (h); and

C is the appropriate temperature correction factor given in Table 1, to correct the infiltration

rate to a standard temperature of 10 °C.

4.2 Method B – on-site determination on synthetic textile, synthetic turf, and bound

mineral sports surfaces
4.2.1 Principle

Water is ponded within two concentric cylinders that have been sealed onto, or hammered into, the

sports surface. The outer cylinder is used as a buffer area to prevent the lateral flow of water from the

inner cylinder.

NOTE A single cylinder can be used if the test piece is fully sealed to prevent lateral flow of water.

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 12616:2022
