|Abstract: ||This study used kinematic data on springboard diving performances to estimate visco-elastic parameters of a
planar model of a springboard and diver with wobbling masses in the trunk, thigh and calf segments and
spring-dampers acting at the heel, ball and toe of the foot segment. A subject-specific angle-driven eightsegment
model was used with an optimisation algorithm to determine visco-elastic parameter values by
matching simulations to four diving performances. Using the parameters determined from the matching of a
single dive in a simulation of another dive resulted in up to 31% difference between simulation and
performance, indicating the danger of using too small a set of kinematic data. However using four dives in a
combined matching process to obtain a common set of parameters resulted in a mean difference of 8.6%.
Since these four dives included very different rotational requirements, it is anticipated that the combined
parameter set can be used with other dives from these two groups.|
