From carbon fibre racing bikes to sharkskin' swimsuits, the application of cutting-edge design, technology and engineering has proved to be a vital ingredient in enhanced sports performance. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive survey of contemporary sports technology and engineering, providing a complete overview of academic, professional and industrial knowledge and technique. The book is divided into four main sections. The first section introduces the sports industry, covering research and innovation in sports business and developments and trends in the design and manufacture of sports products. The second section covers, in depth, the full range of sports equipment, from balls to footwear, with each chapter examining the underpinning engineering science, design principles, materials and essential standards. The third section looks at instrumentation and measurement in sport, covering athletes, equipment and facilities, while the final section explores sports facilities and sustainable design, and offers case reports on industrial product design. Written by an international team of leading experts from industry, academia and commercial research institutes, the emphasis throughout the book is on innovation, the relationship between business and science, and the improvement of sports performance. This is an essential reference for anybody working in sports technology, sports product design, sports engineering, biomechanics, ergonomics, sports business or applied sport science.
