(2014-04)Hand-thrown flying discs have been around since the late 1930s. However, the physics of flying disc flight is complex and few measurements have been made of discs in flight. The purpose of this study was to make in-flight ...
(2012-04)The purpose of this study was to use accelerometers and micro-controllers to measure the acceleration of water rockets and to compare the results to a theoretical model developed by Peter Nielsen of the University of Queensland.
(2012-04)The costs and sizes of accelerometers and microcontrollers have dropped significantly in the last several years. This study tested a microcontroller-accelerometer combination on a well-understood system, the rigid ...
(2012-04)Previous research has stated that dry land sled pulling trains first step quickness in hockey players. Further research has demonstrated that off-ice horizontal training (sled pull, parachute, etc.) relates well to on-ice ...
