Development of a Strain Energy Storage Mechanism Using Tension Elements to Enhance Golf Club Performance. Development of a Strain Energy Storage Mechanism Using Tension Elements to Enhance Golf Club Performance.
The results of this research, from concept development to initial prototype plans, are included in this study. A discussion of past and current research in the area of golf club design is presented. A new list of performance metrics for golf clubs and a number of new golf club concepts is also presented. This is followed by a static and dynamic analysis of the most promising golf club configuration. The study is concluded with a concept validation analysis and a presentation of possible prototype configurations for a new golf club design.
