Anyone Up for Badminton?

Is it possible to study and optimize the performance of a badminton racquet through simulation? Is it art or science to design a racquet?


Would it be possible to reuse knowledge from other simulation disciplines and apply them on sports equipment? Tools at hand were HyperWorks, a caliper, and my newly bought badminton racquet! The racquet was modeled using HyperMesh®, solved in RADIOSS®, and rendered in Evolve®.
