This method is used to measure synthetic turf infill depth using a 3-prong gauge with a constant ground pressure plate with a standard contact surface area to minimize user errors associated with varying hand, gauge accuracies, and device inconsistencies associated with devices of varying mass and surface contact area. In addition to decreasing variation associated with user and device, this method will provide a baseline ground pressure to minimize the impact of loose or poorly compacted infill. inconsistently compacted infill, and trapped fibers. This method is suitable for measure infill material depth in the laboratory and in the field.
