Geometry in sports: skiing [School]

Mens sana in corpore sano, and healthier the sport and a restless mind. My students enjoy both qualities and do not hesitate to relate by geometry applied to the design of equipment for sports.

This entry posted on their blogs is an example of the application of geometry to the study of the performance of the skis

Mens sana in corpore sano is a Latin quotation from Juvenal. Its original meaning is the need for a balanced spirit in a balanced body; not, therefore, the same direction in which it is used today: “healthy mind in a healthy body”. Is the motto of the institution Gimnasia La Plata, Argentinos Juniors Athletic Association and Application Liceo de Chile.(W)

Carving cutting means snow, that applies to driving on snow skis, That is driving a short spin snow.(Nevasport)

It was in the year 96 Elan posed a radical change. Based on an old project, mid emerged 70, this brand proposes to change the shape of the base of the skis. By varying the geometry varies operation and ski walking, greatly facilitating the shift and control on the track.

Is unpublished as a product referred to as a change in the function directly hitting. And what's even weirder is that this change arising from new products, new uses and new activities in the mountains. From there was a wide variety of alternatives skis together in groups.

The carving is then, a ski base with a very pronounced way. The edges curve is exaggerated and can be seen with the naked eye. The difference between the tips section and skid is notorious. The edges curve radius is determined by theoretical, usually observed as given them in all modern skis.

Geometrically speaking, to a radius of less cute (from 9 to 14 meters), corresponds to a steeper geometry, skiing will look fatter in the tips and have a more aggressive and sporty behavior; described in theoretical walk short curves.

A greater radius of gyration, Ski carries a smoother profile, because the turns will be broader theoretical; why have a go skiing less abrupt.
