The 1st foreign Congress on technological know-how and snowboarding used to be held in Austria in January 1996. the most objective of the convention was once to collect unique key learn during this sector and provid an important replace for these within the box. The lnk among thought and perform used to be additionally addressed, making the examine extra acceptable for either researchers and coaches.This e-book is split into 5 elements, each one containing a bunch of papers which are similar by means of subject matter or disciplineary technique. they're as follows: Biomechanics of snowboarding; health checking out and coaching in snowboarding; stream keep watch over and Psychology in snowboarding; body structure of snowboarding and Sociology of Skiing.The conclusions drawn from the convention characterize a useful functional reference for activities scientists, coached, skiers and all these keen on this region.

Some of the problems discussed here can be reduced by influencing the glide path through altering the equipment regulations. Glide path modifications due to changes in equipment have to correspond to regulations concerning jumping-hill design and cannot be made independently from each other. An extensive analysis would be urgently needed for existing jumping hills and for those being planned for future competitions. Such investigations would also have to consider extreme situations (uncontrolled descents, gusts from different directions, accidents occuring at take-off, wrong choice of the approach velocity v0, outstanding performances of the best athletes, as well as the very poor jumps of inexperienced ones) in order to maximize both the safety and the attractivity of ski-jumping competitions.

Compare with [6] or [7]), it is not possible to estimate the effect of initial value or parameter changes without the help of a computer model. This is particularly the case when comparing different or changing aerodynamic values (lift area L, drag area D) during the flight. During the flight phase, the athlete’s position changes; our modelling concept considers the dependency of L and D values to the actual flight position and allows one to simulate flights with any sequence of position angles imaginable.
