Scientists Showcases New Computational Modeling

27 Jan 17

Scientists at the University of Tsukuba have introduced a new computational modeling approach that provides precise 3D data of anatomical distribution. Through the study, the scientists claimed that the new computational modeling approach can provide data on air flow, vortex formation, and lift around a skier's body.

The scientists said that the new model has utility for designing better ski equipment and determining the ideal posture to adopt during skiing. Since downhill skiers can exceed speeds of 120 km/h, face high levels of air resistance, and must adopt a tuck position to reduce this. Though, at elite levels, miniscule differences in air resistance can be extremely important. At Elite level, podium places can be separated by hundredth of a second.

The team of scientists has advanced their study by establishing a novel approach to computational modeling of air flow alongside wind tunnel experiments. The scientists used a mannequin for their wind tunnel experiments. To validate the computer simulations, the scientists provided total drag data at different air flow speeds to the mannequin.
