Abstract:

When children jump, very high peak forces can be exerted during landing. Fortunately, these forces are of very short duration. Therefore, products can often withstand such high forces without failing. The results of peak force measurements cannot be used directly in the customary static design procedures. The dynamic nature of the peak force should be taken into account. This article shows how the results of jump measurements could be applied in practice.
