The biomechanics of running with load
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis was conceived to improve the evidence base concerning the mechanical rationale and efficacy of physical training in load carriage running. I have shown that training informed by biomechanics has the potential to augment specific cost functions during load carriage running. This knowledge would benefit both athletes and their coaches who must perform with load. This thesis addresses the burden load carriage has on physical performance and sporting health.

Modelling pile capacity and load-settlement behaviour of piles embedded in sand & mixed soils using artificial intelligenceAlkroosh, Iyad Salim Jabor (2011)This thesis presents the development of numerical models which are intended to be used to predict the bearing capacity and the load-settlement behaviour of pile foundations embedded in sand and mixed soils. Two artificial ...
Hao, Hong; Li, Z.; Shi, Y. (2016)Some structures, both military and civilian, might experience explosive loads during their service life. Owing to high uncertainties in blast load predictions and structural parameters, accurate assessment of the performances ...
The contribution of load magnitude and number of load cycles to cumulative low-back load estimations: A study based on in-vitro compression dataCoenen, Pieter; Kingma, I.; Boot, C.; Bongers, P.; Van Dieën, J. (2012)Background: Cumulative low-back load is suggested to be associated with low back pain, possibly due to (micro-)fractures of spinal segments. Based on available in vitro data it can be assumed that, in order to predict ...
