So a slackline is basically a bouncy tight rope.

I found a site that has a calculator for the tension of a static slackline

http://www.slacklineexpress.com/force.php?linelength=40&sag=1&w=170

What I want to figure out is how much this tension increases when bouncing on the slackline. Is there an equation I can use to calculate this?

What are the variables? weight? height of jump? original tension? What else?

Thanks!
