Owners, architects and manufacturers alike will find ASET Services to be a reliable and independent source of information and educational material. As information and educational white-papers are developed, they are posted on this website as a service to the entire industry.
The information presented on this site is provided by ASET Services. ASET does not accept advertising fees of any form for this site. Additionally, all white papers are developed internally and they reflect the professional opinion of ASET Services. No payments are accepted in developing these educational documents. Finally, we know your time is valuable and that is why we have developed a streamlined website. The intent is to provide a site that can be accessed quickly using yesterday’s dial-up connections as well as today’s high speed connections and mobile devices. With that in mind you’ll find only low resolution images on this site. Higher resolution images are available on our Facebook Page.
ASET Services was founded in 2002 by Paul Elliott, Ph.D., P.E. Elliott received his Doctorate in Engineering from Purdue University in 1997 for research, testing and simulation of sports surfaces. He went on to work as a research engineer within the sports surface industry and to become a licensed engineering in both Ohio and Indiana. He has drawn on his academic, research, engineering, construction and installation backgrounds to develop many of the services offered by ASET.
Since founding ASET he has maintained an active roll within the ASTM Sports Surfaces subcommittee (F-08), where he is an advocate for the entire North American sports surface industry. He has worked to ensure that when standards are developed they provide the necessary information to consumers without placing an unreasonable financial burden on them or the manufacturer.
Elliott has always felt that the key to making good decisions is knowing the facts. He continues to develop educational and scientific presentations for groups like NIRSA and the American Society of Biomechanics. He also develops informative white papers and position statements which are freely available through the library section of ASET’s website.
