Mechanical analysis of tennis racket and ball nduring impact based on finite element method

Author(s): Li Jiude

Mechanical analysis of tennis racket and ball during impact is of utmost importance to advance development of sports activities. Finite element analysis is often applied to further our understanding of the mechanics of sports equipment. Based on the finite element method, in the present paper FE model of tennis racket and meshing can be developed. The effect of incident angle and velocity of ball, tennis racket material and the relationship with incident/rebound velocity of ball are researched in detail to demonstrate the internal relation during the racket/ball impact. It is found that the incident angle and velocity, the racket material and the ratio of incident/rebound velocity are main influencing factors
