The effect of drafting on the aerodynamic drag of a long-track speed skater is investigated in-field, at the 400m ice-rink of Thialf, Heerenveen. The Ring of Fire system is used to measure the flow downstream of an elite, isolated skater at approximately 11 m/s, transiting repeatedly through a tunnel filled with Helium-filled soap bubble flow...

An aerodynamic assessment is presented of two elite skaters, each in two different skating postures, at the ice-rink Thialf in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, via on-site Ring of Fire (RoF) measurements. This experimental approach adopts stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (Stereo-PIV) to measure the flow upstream and downstream of the...

The research presented in this thesis introduces a new measurement concept for on-site aerodynamic measurements based on large-scale stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (stereo-PIV) measurements past an athlete, a vehicle or an object travelling through a quiescent environment. The analysis of the momentumdeficit past the transit poses the...

The aerodynamic drag of a trailing cyclists in a tandem formation is investigated at different lateral and longitudinal separations. A Ring of Fire (RoF) experiment is conducted at the Tom Dumoulin bike park of Sittard-Geleen in the Netherlands. The method is based on stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (Stereo-PIV) measurements followed...

The Ring of Fire (RoF) measurement concept to perform on-site experiments of aerodynamic drag for transiting objects is investigated with a study that identifies the main sources of uncertainty. The main contributors to the uncertainty of the drag measurement are examined for the case of a cyclist riding through the measurement domain. A...

An on-site Ring of Fire (RoF) experiment is performed at the Tom Dumoulin bike park in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands. The current work investigates the aerodynamic drag of a cyclist following a lead cyclist at different lateral and longitudinal separations; additionally, the athletes’ skills to maintain their position and distance with respect...

Abstract: The Ring of Fire (RoF) measurement concept, introduced by Terra et al. (Exp Fluids 58:83. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00348-017-2331-0, 2017; Experiments in Fluids 59:120, 2018), is applied to real cyclists to enable the aerodynamic drag determination during sport action. This principle is based on large-scale stereoscopic particle...

A novel measurement system, the Ring of Fire, is deployed which enables the aerodynamic drag estimation of transiting cyclists. The system relies upon the use of large-scale stereoscopic PIV and the conservation of momentum within a control volume in a frame of reference moving with the athlete. The rider cycles at a velocity of approximately 8...

A procedure is proposed to reconstruct the instantaneous velocity field from full particle trajectories in a data assimilation framework that includes the vorticity transport equation. The technique is christened as time-segment assimilation (TSA). The work addresses the common problem of low seeding concentration in 3D experiments, usuallThe...
