View Full Version : Biomechanics and Roller Coaster Design

01-21-2009, 12:31 PM
Dear all,

I am teaching a senior elective biomechanical engineering class and have a
student who is very interested in learning more about combining his
interest in roller coaster design and biomechanical engineering. I wondered
if anyone had any experience in this area, and could provide him with
either references to learn more about the role of biomechanics in roller
coaster design, or advice as to how to cultivate this interest into
possible career outlets.

Thank you,

Kimberly Edginton Bigelow
