KINEMATIC AND DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE WIDE-RADIUS TURNS IN SNOWBIKING
Keywords: kinematics, dynamics, 2D and 3D analysis, movement optimization
AbstractThe objective of this study is to determine particular phases of the turn execution in snowbiking and the resulting time measured at the finish line. The 2D and 3D analysis should be carried out, so that the course of each kinematic and dynamic parameter could be interpreted appropriately, in order for it to be used for the purpose of mathematic modelling and by trainers, coaches and competitors. The results produced by this study, satisfied the requirements for determining particular phases of the wide-radius turn execution. In addition, statistically significant relations between the duration of the phases and the time reached at the finish were confirmed. Selected parameters were calculated and interpreted, relevant to the field of dynamics.
