Biomechanics, human injuries
Diving is common activity for animals including humans. However, the water-entry process and mechanism of such complex body shapes is poorly understood and difficult to study, but is of great importance in their injuries. Furthermore, heights greater than 30 feet (~ 10 meters) is arbitrary set for the injury risk of diving into water by governments. However, the Redbull Cliff Diving competition regularly tests people’s abilities to dive from 90 feet.
The goal of this project is to understand the mechanics of human diving by investigating the interplay amongst the overall diving kinematics and their bone structures, muscles, and skin properties. Furthermore, this study will allow us to understand the significance of mechanical forces during diving at different postures. Our proposed research approaches will involve the structural characterizations, reduced-order experimentation, force-measuring electronics, high-speed imaging, and mathematical modeling.
