Rowing Force Simulation and Control System
The rowing force simulation and control system is to be developed to generate the loading on the oar during the rowing stroke most adequate to the one acting during waterborne rowing. The paper presents the methodology of defining the law of change of loading on the oar by changing the cross-sectional area of flow channel of hydraulic loading unit at indoor rowing training facility. An example of the rowing force variation during one cycle obtained by using such a system is provided.
