Race-time prediction for the Va’a paralympic sprint canoe

Race-time prediction for the Va’a paralympic sprint canoe
Race-time prediction for the Va’a paralympic sprint canoe
The 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will see 200m sprint canoe events for the first time, using the Va’a class. The aim of this study is to predict race times for the Va’a over a 200m sprint event, through simulation of the hydrodynamic resistance of the hull (with outrigger) and the propulsion provided by the athlete. Such a simulation, once suitably validated, allows investigation of design and configuration changes on predicted race performance. The accuracy of the simulation is discussed through a comparison to times recorded for an athlete over a 200m race distance

Abstract

The 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will see 200m sprint canoe events for the first time, using the Va’a class. The aim of this study is to predict race times for the Va’a over a 200m sprint event, through simulation of the hydrodynamic resistance of the hull (with outrigger) and the propulsion provided by the athlete. Such a simulation, once suitably validated, allows investigation of design and configuration changes on predicted race performance. The accuracy of the simulation is discussed through a comparison to times recorded for an athlete over a 200m race distance
