The AMPeRE Project, Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing, through multi-purpose post-PRocEssing, is a business-driven initiative focusing on post-processing, specifically for powder bed fusion methods.
The aim is to study the effects of air drag and drafting in double poling cross-country skiing by examining how much force and energy the skiers can save by skiing behind the front skier.
The project INNOKOMP, Innovative powder-based component technology, focuses on powder, a green technology, as raw material for further processing. Part of the project focuses on additive manufacturing as an opportunity for advanced and flexible products in terms of production volume and mass production.
In all endurance sports, the choice of pacing strategy is an important component for optimal performance where time gains can be achieved if the speed is adapted to the terrain, wind resistance and the individual's physiological and biomechanical abilities.
In para sports there are differences in performance, which is compensated by classification, where the final result is adjusted depending on the person's impairment. The project aims to make the classification in para sport more fair.
The project aims to study breathing resistance in flow meters, valves, mixing chambers and respiratory hoses, as well as its effects on athletes pulmonary ventilation and aerobic energy expenditure.
Being able to keep high speed at steep downhill slopes when running outdoors is an important factor for performance in undulating terrain. However, to date research is sparse regarding the most effective running technique for a fast downhill descent as well as what requirements such a technique puts on the equipment to optimize the body's motion.
With the help of a constructed surrogate head with many sensors, the researchers hope to gain knowledge of what is happening in the brain during trauma to the head. In this way, even better safety equipment can be designed that protects against both collision and rotation.
Sports Tech Innovation Initiative - STII, is a joint venture between Mid University and the business community, which will strengthen renewal and competitiveness primarily with companies engaged in innovative products in the industry and in the outdoors sector.
The project aims to establish the region of Jämtland / Härjedalen, Västernorrland and Tröndelag as one of Northern Europe's centers for additive manufacturing and strengthening companies in the region and developing new products.
