|Analytic Cycling provides technical methods for
evaluating and estimating cycling performance and parameters. It makes extensive use of differential equations and advanced numerical methods.|
Analytic Cycling methods respond in real time, characteristically returning tables and plots as products of the methods. Try a selection from the "Tool Kit". Click on the forms. Change the form data. See results for yourself.
The models at Analytic Cycling are written in Mathematica® technical computing language. HostSRV.com, which specializes in hosting webMathematica® applications, provides our hosting and Mathematica® services. AnalyticCycling.com started as a demonstration of this technology but took on a life of its own. These technologies are now offered to those with an interest in delivering a technical computing solution through a web interface.|
|Questions We Answer|
"No-compromise tools for analyzing cycling performance."
|Pedal Force Simulator|
|I have been working on what I call a Pedal Force Simulator. The device does a much better job of simulating outdoor riding on an indoor training device.|
I have created a blog to promote the project. Take a look, comment as appropriate, and please pass the link along to anyone that may have an interest.
Why? Read the blog.
|Calculate Running Pace|
|You returned from your run. What's your pace? (time per distance, for example an 8:08) Do the calculation on your mobile: www.analyticcycling.com/pace.php
|Rider Aero Study|
|John Cobb, who does wind tunnel testing for some of the best riders in the world, sent us some of his wind tunnel data. We did an analysis and report the results at Rider Aero Study.
|Wind on Rider|
|Wind is often neglected in models because it's easier and less complicated to leave it out, but we all know it's a significant factor. Testing has shown that the drag on the wheels changes with the apparent wind direction. The Wind on Rider model estimates the effects of wind on a rider over a course of your choice. "What front wheel should I use on the Sydney 2000 TT course?" See for yourself.
|Did You Know?|
|We now have a general model of a rider on a surface. It's useful for analyzing paths for flying 200, sprint tactics, or a technical finish for a criterium. Contact us if you should want to apply this model to a competitive situation.|
