Both coaches and cyclists nowadays determine the training schedules for important races based on experience
and gut-feeling. Data are available for the evaluation of training schedules, but a sound scientific
method of accomplishing this does not yet exist. The biggest hurdle in developing such a method for cycling
is the absence of...

At this moment there are more than 150 different designs of CMMA in existence. To aid the designer to develop a new or improved CMMA or choose what the design to use, a classification system is developed during the literature research. It is based on the geometrical advantage (GA) of the CMMA, and on the input and output port motion paths. Their...

More than forty years after its introduction, Simplified General Perturbation Theory No. 4 (SGP4) is still currently in use as the de facto standard in orbit propagation and in generating Two-Line Elements (TLEs). Unfortunately, the positioning error that results from the generated TLEs have remained relatively unchanged and continue to increase...

Drag measurements on bluff-bodies such as bobsleighs using force balance systems have been in prevalence for a few decades. However these studies do not reveal anything on the flow behaviour around the body. In the recent past, various flow visualization techniques have been applied to investigate the flow behaviour around bobsleighs. Even...
