MEASURING DYNAMIC SKI BEHAVIOR WITH STRAIN GAUGES
Keywords: strain gauges, ski, torsion, flexion
AbstractThe performance of a ski is influenced not only by geometric properties such as length, width, camber height, side cut and thickness; but also by the deformation behaviour caused by the mechanical properties (Kaps et al. 2001). The purpose of this work was to evaluate the influence of flexural and torsional stiffness on the deformation of a ski during turns.
