Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide cultural and operational instruments for the biomechanical analysis of human movement, of sport activities and of human locomotion. The mechanical determinants of sports activities (e.g. athletic events) and the mechanical and energetic determinants of "cyclic" sports such as walking, running, cycling, swimming and cross-country skiing will be examined in detail. Part of the program will be carried out in the form of practical exercises of data analysis to enable the students to verify, from a practical point of view, the theoretical knowledge acquired and to familiarize with biomechanical calculations.

Program

1- Biomechanics of Sports

Muscle mechanics. Force-velocity and force-length relationships. Muscle architecture and its effects on muscle force. Mechanical proprieties of different muscle fibers (type I and II). Mechanics of tendons and ligaments: stress and strain, the Young's modulus.
Statics. Forces in biomechanics: external and internal forces; normal and shear forces; the distribution of forces and pressure. Frictional forces. Torque and levers. The center of mass. Joint biomechanics.
Linear kinematics. Linear displacement, speed and acceleration (average and instantaneous values). Projectile motion (jumps and throws).
Kinetic / Nonlinear dynamics. Force, work and power. Kinetic, potential and elastic energy. The principle of conservation of energy. Impulse and linear momentum. Impacts and collisions.
Angular kinematics. Polar coordinates. Angular displacement, velocity and acceleration. Uniform circular motion.
Kinetics / Dynamics corner. Moment of inertia. Rotational kinetic energy. Angular work and power. Conservation of angular momentum.

2- Biomechanics of locomotion

Efficiency and energy cost. Aerodynamic and non-aerodynamic energy cost. Muscle efficiency, transmission efficiency and locomotion efficiency.
Cycling. Aerodynamic drag and rolling friction. Normal and effective force applied to the pedals. The "man-bicycle" arrangement. The HPV (human-powered vehicles).
Walking and running. Step/stride phases, duty factor, ground reaction forces. Internal and external mechanical work. Positive work, negative work and mechanical efficiency. Biomechanics of running on gradients and with applied loads. The transition between walking and running. The Froude number.
Cross-country skiing and ice skating. Resistant forces and propulsive forces.
Swimming. Statics and dynamics of fluids: applications to swimming. The static and dynamic position of the body in water. The hydrodynamic resistance (active and passive drag). Propelling and Froude efficiency.

News for students

There you will find information, resources and services useful during your time at the University (Student’s exam record, your study plan on ESSE3, Distance Learning courses, university email account, office forms, administrative procedures, etc.). You can log into MyUnivr with your GIA login details.

Further services

I servizi e le attività di orientamento sono pensati per fornire alle future matricole gli strumenti e le informazioni che consentano loro di compiere una scelta consapevole del corso di studi universitario.


Orario lezioni

L’orario delle lezioni è pubblicato nel portale studenti e nella app univr lezioni

N.B. Si ricorda di confermare la prenotazione del posto nel momento in cui si accede all’aula.

Le esercitazioni e i laboratori verranno organizzati in sottogruppi dai singoli docenti responsabili dei corsi e sarà necessario frequentarle in sede e solamente per queste non sarà necessaria la prenotazione del posto ma verrà rilevata la presenza dal docente il giorno stesso.


E' confermato l'obbligo di frequenza al 70% (in presenza o in videoregistrazione), come da Regolamento dei corsi di laurea e laurea magistrale.

L'accesso alle pagine Moodle dei singoli insegnamenti è vincolato alla compilazione del piano di studi.

Ulteriori informazioni relative all'utilizzo della app Univr Lezioni, FAQ e guida all'utilizzo sono disponibili in allegato e al link:

Internships

Internships are aimed at enabling students to gain direct knowledge of the world of work and to acquire specific professional skills.

Internships are carried out under the responsibility of an individual lecturer, and can be carried out in professional firms, public administration bodies and companies recognised by the University of Verona.

Any CFU credits gained by doing internships will be recognised and recorded by the University in accordance with the relevant University regulations in force (Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari).

For further information on internships, please go to: https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
