Correlating Microgeometry to Slicing Mechanics: Design of a Simulated Ski Laceration MachinePublic Deposited
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The objective of this project is to investigate methods for understanding differences between hand and electrical side edge tuning of ski edges by examining the microgeometry and cutting performance of the edges. This paper discusses the design of a slicing machine, which will be used to conduct slicing tests with ski edges tuned with different sharpening methods. The findings may provide insight into how sharpening methods affect the risk of laceration injuries. The slicing machine has been constructed and is ready to begin conducting trials.
