Description

Tasks

  1. Get familiar with the mathematical descriptions of cycling dynamics and fatigue
  2. Literature research on how cadence influences power output.
  3. Investigate the influence of cadence on existing strategies (are they valid?)

For extension towards a thesis:

  1. Determine and analyze optimized strategies that take cadence into account

Prerequisites

Coding is done in MATLAB, basic mathematical knowledge required.
