What we are proposing in this chapter is an overview of the ice skating. We are now not considering the figurative ice skating, but only the ice speed-skating. Furthermore, only few hints will be provided about the outdoor skating, focusing then on the indoor competitions. After an historical reconstruction of the origins of this sport, the analysis will be divided into two main blocks: the dynamical model and the aerodynamic analysis of a speed skater (both numerical and experimental). Few notes about the track will be discussed along the chapter.

Abstract

What we are proposing in this chapter is an overview of the ice skating. We are now not considering the figurative ice skating, but only the ice speed-skating. Furthermore, only few hints will be provided about the outdoor skating, focusing then on the indoor competitions. After an historical reconstruction of the origins of this sport, the analysis will be divided into two main blocks: the dynamical model and the aerodynamic analysis of a speed skater (both numerical and experimental). Few notes about the track will be discussed along the chapter.
