Abstract

The oblique impact between a golf ball and a rigid steel target was studied using a high-speed video camera. Video images recorded before and after the impact were used to determine the inbound velocity v i , rebound velocity v r , inbound angle θ i , rebound angle θ r , and the coefficient of restitution e. The results showed that θ r and e decreased as v i increased. The maximum compression ratio η c , contact time t c , average angular velocity ω̄, and tangential velocity v̄, along the target were determined from images obtained during the impact. The images demonstrated that η c increased with v i while t c decreased. In addition, ω̄ and v̄ t increased almost linearly as v i increased. A rigid body model was used to estimate the final angular velocity ω* and tangential velocity v t * at the end of the impact; these results were then compared with experimental data.
