Mechanics of a Golf Swing
Application ID: 18485
How well you can strike a golf ball is not only determined by your muscle strength, but more importantly it is influenced by the mechanics of golf swing. The outcome of golf stroke is basically determined by the movement of the club head just prior to the impact with the ball.
In this example, a multibody analysis of a golf swing is performed. Aim of the analysis is to maximize the club head speed just prior to the impact with the ball. The wrist torque, which has an important role to play in improving the outcome of the stroke, is varied parametrically to see its effect on the club head speed.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Multibody Dynamics Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
