    Tension Curves / Diagram

    Post by Bo on Fri Jun 28, 2013 8:08 pm

    Hello everybody.

    Are there any serious diagrams of the relative material tension rates of various bow shapes / geometry ?

    I mean, tabular or graphic descriptions of tension distrubution of various bow shapes.

    I think of trying some practice in a CAD program, but if others have already perfected it, it would be a waste of time.

    May God be with you / Gud vare med Er.

    There is a very interesting paper about this in the 2007 issue of "Journal of Society of Archer-Antiquaries" by Jens Sensfelder. "Investigation of steel crossbow lath"
    By the way it is not a need to be "Faithful" to publish here:lol:
