Finite Element Simulation of the Bowling Lane Drop-Down Test and Bowling Multibody Dynamics

Keywords Multibody dynamics, drop-down testing, composite materials,bowling multibody dynamics
Programs in use ANSYS, LS-DYNA

In the current work simulation of drop-down test of bowling ball to the composite lane was performed. The composite lane consists of supporting honeycomb structure and face layers. The finite element model was verified with use of real tests data. The work results allowed to find the optimal thickness of lane layers.
