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:
