    This project uses very basic physics, Newton's Second Law of Motion, to model the motion of a sprinter running down a track. The model is driven by data from the world record race of Usain Bolt in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. In particular, we derive the classic Hill-Keller model for a...

  4. 3-150-S-ItsABlastFurnace

    13 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kurt Bryan

    This project uses the steady-state heat equation to model the temperature distribution in an industrial furnace used for metal production, for example, a blast furnace.The heat flow is assumed to be steady-state, so that only an elementary ordinary differential equation (ODE) is needed, and...
