  • Re: rowing study parameters

    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...
