A mathematical simulator for Tandem Cycles
Terry Barnaby - West Country
The following physics simulators are rough and ready and are an attempt to see the basic physics of a Tandem cycle.
- Tandem Speed Calculator. This calculates the overal speed of a Tandem given the riders position, the all up weight and the power of the tandemists.
- Brake heat Calculator. This calculates the temperature of the brakes on a long downhill decent. It shows how overheating brakes can occur.
- Tandem Ride Speed Calculator. This calculates the average speed of a Tandem over a typical ride.
