Have a happy holiday until our next meeting!
The International Sports Engineering Association was founded 20 years ago to help organize and promote the relatively new sub-discipline of sports engineering. Initially, the field was focused on mechanical engineering topics, but has grown to encompass nearly all engineering and mathematics fields. A brief overview of the history of this field will be given, followed by specific technical case studies of sports engineering applications including the application of engineering fundamentals in aerodynamics, vibrations, metal fatigue, and acoustics. Finally, future trends in the sports, fitness, health and wellness industry will be discussed highlighting areas where engineering and science expertise will be required to launch successful businesses and products in this growing field.
A NASA trained engineer and Ironman triathlete, Dr. Blair, is a Senior Manager at Exponent, a multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific consultancy.
