Weight Dynamics Demonstration

Post by Vitamin K » Tue Oct 04, 2016 6:19 am

Hey guys, it's quiet in here!

Anyhow, I know that "treadmill testing" has gotten a bad rap, but this little demonstration made me wonder if it might have a few things it can teach us yet...

Wonder if we could apply this to PWD for stability testing. Though, Ideally you'd need a treadmill with some kind of incorporated center rail?

Neat test! Do you have the partial differential equations that describe your observations?
