RG.Polito Glide: team green snowboarding. Structural materials for an innovative snowboard
Thesis type SVILUPPO SOFTWARE
Description The RG.Polito Glide project aims at the design, the manufacturing, the optimization of a snowboard which will be environmentally sustainable from the point of view of the materials, of manufacturing processes, of integration of competences, of closeness to nature and to sport as instruments for integration and improvement of environment attention.
The project will be developed in the frame of a student team which is being established starting from initial design and prototype.
In the current thesis activity the materials which can be used to manufacture the board will be investigated, the materials will be experimentally characterised, to obtain the data required for FEM structural analysis.
The study will be developed by means experimental testing and in cohoperation with other students who will deal with structural analysis, tribological and fluidodynamic issues.
