Archery performance has been shown to be dependent on the resonance frequencies and operational deflection shape of the arrows. This vibrational behaviour is influenced by the design and material of the arrow and the presence of damage in the arrow structure. In recent years arrow design has progressed to use lightweight and stiff composite materials. This paper investigates the vibration of composite archery arrows through a finite difference model based on Euler–Bernoulli theory, and a three…

Aerodynamic properties of an archery arrow
Two support-interference-free measurements of aerodynamic forces exerted on an archery arrow (A/C/E; Easton Technical Products) are described. The first measurement is conducted in a wind tunnel with
Arrow behaviour in the lateral plane during and immediately following the power stroke of a recurve archery bow
TLDR
The method used by Kooi and Sparenberg to remove subjective components has been extended to include the carbon fibre composite arrows now used almost exclusively in competition and to consider the arrow after it has left the bow.
The impact of material selection on arrow design and optimal selection for competition
Modern arrow shafts are usually tubular and are constructed using high-strength materials, with most competition arrows now using carbon fibre composites. The need to mount the arrow components (and
Arrow behaviour in the vertical plane during and immediately following the power stroke of a recurve bow
TLDR
It is shown that by suitable selection of the arrow’s location on the string, the archer can obtain zero angular velocity and minimal angle of attack.

Position coordinate representation of flying arrow and analysis of its performance indicator
TLDR
This paper proposes a system that can convert the position of a flying arrow into coordinates and an algorithm that expresses the arrow position coordinates and suggests an indicator for the objective assessment of arrow performance using the coordinates from the bow position coordinate measuring system.

Modelling the vibrational behaviour of composite archery arrows
In the sport of archery, recent developments in materials technology have seen the introduction of carbon-fibre aluminium composite arrows. Archery performance has been shown to be dependent on the
Lateral deflection of archery arrows
A whole mechanical and mathematical model of an arrow–bow motion system, which accounts for arrow deflection in the lateral plane, has been created. The arrow is modelled as a shaft within the

The resonant-based identification of the in-plane elastic properties of orthotropic materials implies the estimation of four principal elastic parameters: E1, E2, G12, and ν12. The two elastic moduli

TLDR
The mathematical model and computer simulation were used to describe the arrow's movement for various initial conditions and various parameters of the equipment, based on which a nomogram was constructed of the optimum arrow parameters for bows of various draw forces.
