Paper Title:
Evaluation of the Mechanical Performance of Woodball Mallet: A Finite Element Study
  Abstract

This study aims to analyze the relevant mechanical properties of woodball shafts by applying numerical methods. The structures of woodball were constructed in Solidworks 2007 to form the solid models, and the numerical model was analyzed in ABAQUS to acquire the simulation resluts. The collision speed between ball and mallet was from the experiment of motion analysis. As the maximal stress of mallet was concentrated in the proximal part of bottle, some enforcement design could be carried out in this part to reduce the fracture incidence. Another important finding is the contact area at the mallet head was really small, the rubber cover at head part may thicken at the centre part and thinner at the outside area. For further study, it is important to represent the higher fidelity of the input conditions for the finite element analysis (FEA).
