New article of the lab on running gait impact dynamics

One of the research lines of the Biomechanical Engineering Lab at CREB is the study of the foot-ground contact dynamics. The impact of the foot with the ground is a critical event when it is running. The high contact forces developed are the main cause of energy loss during the movement and can lead to different musculoskeletal injuries. There are a number of runners that consider whether it is better to run with forefoot or heel impact. Based on the experimental data obtained in [...]

Lagrange Award for the best PhD Thesis on Multibody Dynamics

The Springer outstanding PhD thesis prize, also denominated as Lagrange Award for the best PhD research on Multibody Dynamics has been established in 2017 by Springer and the IFToMM Technical Committee for Multibody Dynamics with the aim of recognizing the outstanding achievements of a young researcher (under 35 years old) at the early stage of their scientific career. The Lagrange award will be given annually to recognize the most successful PhD thesis on Multibody Dynamics over the prior year as judged by the evaluation committee. The winner will receive a 1000 € [...]
