Abstract:
Recent years have seen great strides in the construction industry's ability to evaluate and describe the quality of various conventional concrete floor surfaces. Occasionally, however, traditional approaches to evaluation of a surface are insufficient. Such was the case when the design team attempted to describe surface qualities necessary for successful operation of an air-supported people mover recently installed at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.
