Hi all,
My name is Charlie Lee and I'm working in the Biomechanics Lab at UC
Davis. We are working on a project to construct a computer simulation
for rowing movements. We are now in the stage where we need to fine tune
some of the parameters and data used for the simulation. I was wondering
if anyone could help me with dimensions/properties of commonly used oars
and boats (i.e. drag coefficients for common oars, formulas to calculate
drag force for boats of different sizes-1 man, 4 man, 8 man...). The
values that we are currently using are only rough estimates and need to
be more accurate and updated. If you have any info or questions about
the project, please let me know. This is my first time on this
listserver so I'm new at this...
