Arrows, bolts, broadheads and fletching
are the other major pieces needed to
complete the archery puzzle. Stress
Outdoor® supports the design and
performance improvement of these
products. Predictive physics-based
analysis methods have been developed
to predict aerodynamic attributes of
arrows in flight that govern their speed
and accuracy. Predictive engineering
methods have been applied to the
modeling of mechanical broadheads,
making it possible for product designers
to simulate and evaluate deployment-on-
contact performance without having to
rely solely on the inspection of CAD models and prototyping to overcome the challenges of deployment.
This method is superior to observational methods used with high speed cameras which may not highlight the causal factors behind a particular response. The predictive methods used by Stress Outdoor® allow for the engineering team to make known adjustments to designs or materials and to immediately understand the causal response in performance. New designs can be investigated and improved without total dependence on costly and time consuming trial and error prototype experimentation.
All of the Stress Outdoor® services leverage our expertise in polymer science, adhesives development and composites.
