MODELLING OF DISCUS-FLIGHT

  • F. Hildebrand
Keywords: discus, modeling, flight

Abstract

The previous theoretical considerations about gyro stability of the discus are not in agreement with practical observations. Thus there exist a theoretical deficit about our understanding of discus flight and therefore our desire, to set up new tables of throw distances as a function of initial values and wind forces. A 3D-model of the discus flight is developed.
