Zip Line Speed and Position Analysis – CZ1

We will examine how different environmental effects impact the performance of a zip line with regards to rider speeds and whether or not a rider stops short at the end. We will use real life calculations to show how wind, temperature, altitude as well as zip line geometry and cable tensions can significantly impact the ride and safety of participants.

Learning Objectives:
