  1. 1. Objective Analysis Methods in the Mechanics of Sports

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mikael Swarén; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sports equipment; test methods; sports mechanics; biomechanics; performance analysis; tracking; positioning system; pacing; alpine skiing; cross-country skiing; poles; helmets;

    Abstract : Sports engineering can be considered as the bridge between the knowledge of sports science and the principles of engineering and has an important role not only in improving the athletic performance, but also in increasing the safety of the athletes. Testing and optimization of sports equipment and athletic performance are essential for supporting athletes in their quest to reach the podium. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental test setups and simulations in skiing mechanics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mikael Swarén; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sports equipment; test methods; sports mechanics; alpine skiing; cross-country skiing; poles; helmets; glide; performance;

    Abstract : Product testing and development are essential parts in sports and for the athletes in their quest to reach the podium. Manufacturers of sports equipment often use basic test methods which do not test the equipment in a sports specific way. READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical optimization of pacing strategies in locomotive endurance sports

    University dissertation from Östersund : Mid Sweden University

    Author : David Sundström; Mittuniversitetet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Pacing strategy; optimization; numerical simulation; equations of motion; method of moving asymptotes; cross-country skiing; cycling; Farthållningsstrategi; optimering; numerisk simulering; rörelseekvationer; method of moving asymptotes; längdskidåkning; cykling;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the optimization of pacing strategies in two locomotive endurance sports; cross-country skiing and road cycling. It has been established that constant pace and variable power distributions are optimal if purely mechanical aspects of locomotion are considered in these sports. READ MORE

  4. 4. Optimized Pacing Strategies in Cross-Country Skiing and Time-Trial Road Cycling

    University dissertation from Östersund : Mid Sweden University

    Author : David Sundström; Mittuniversitetet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Optimization; numerical simulation; equations of motion; MMA; cross-country skiing; cycling; Optimering; numerisk simulering; rörelseekvationer; MMA; längdskidåkning; cykling;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the analysis and optimization of pacing strategies in cross-country skiing and time-trial road cycling. In locomotive sports, it is well known that variable pacing strategies using changes in the distribution of power output are beneficial when external forces vary along the way. READ MORE

  5. 5. Musculoskeletal Biomechanics in Cross-country Skiing

    University dissertation from Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : L. Joakim Holmberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Why copy the best athletes? When you finally learn their technique, they may have already moved on. Using muscluloskeletal biomechanics you might be able to add the "know-why" so that you can lead, instead of being left in the swells. READ MORE
