Abstract (English)

In the paper a mathematical model of side skidding for carving skis is presented. The authors have demonstrated in their previous work that carving skis generate generally lower vibrations during the parallel ski turn in comparison to the skis with the classical side cut. However, carving skis can provoke excessive vibration in the case of side skidding. This phenomena have been explained by applying a heuristic model of side skidding for carving skis. The model was verified with measurements on the ski slope and with a simulation using an industrial robot.
