Abstract

Athletes' technical skill must be matched with appropriate equipment if an archer ,is to be successful. A lot of key skills of archery are determined by the features of aerodynamics of a flying arrow. Therefore, the performance of bow and arrow and the understanding of them have a direct impact on archery skill and competition Iresult. Water and wind tunnel testing of arrows to establish their hydrodynamic characteristics are needed if performance is to be optimized.
