Url: http://users.wpi.edu/~brown/machining/index.htm
Creator: Brown, Christopher A.
Publisher: Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Description: Modeling Edging Forces in Skiing using Merchant's Theory for Metal Cutting is a website with slides demonstrating how Merchant's Theory relates to skiing. Pictures and equations are used to demonstrate forces in skiing. The edge and lean angles are used to describe how these forces are developed. Finally, the analogy between skiing and machining is clarified. Related material: "On the Skiability of Snow" by C.A. Brown.
