Record #112414:

The thermal response of downhill skis / Samuel C. Colbeck, G.C. Warren.

Title: The thermal response of downhill skis / Samuel C. Colbeck, G.C. Warren.
Author(s): Colbeck, Samuel C.
Warren, G. C.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 37(126) (1991)
Abstract: Temperatures in skis measured with thermocouples to investigate heat generation associated with their sliding on snow, in particular, effects of ambient snow temperature, snow type, speed, load, and thermal conductivity. In general, it was found that heat-flow characteristics were predictable from theory, and model could be used to predict effectiveness of different materials and geometries. Also, temperature measurements of this type could be used for judging effectiveness of ski waxes.
