A Computational Study of Metabolism in Sprinting (TECHNICAL NOTE)


Mathematical / Computer Science and Engineering, Poornima University, Jaipur, India


In this paper, we develop a mathematical model of sprinting in which anaerobicmetabolism is included. This model is simplified by considering the broad changes of energy leveland the cyclic variation associated with the strike pattern. We consider the effect of the centre of massto the overall energy balance along with force of resistance during initial motion of body. Results areobtained for the model from an event of a sprint championship. These computed results closelypredict the overall average performance of the participants over the course of entire race.
