Bow Simulator

Bow and arrow physics simulation for Windows and Linux

Bow Simulator is a free, open-source software tool for simulating the physics of bow and arrow. It allows users to design virtual bows and calculate static and dynamic characteristics such as deformation, draw curve, material stresses, arrow velocity, degree of efficiency and more. This way bow designs can be evaluated and optimized before actually building them.

However, please note that this software is still somewhat immature, so don't trust the results too much yet and report any bugs that you find.

For more information see the feature list below or have a look at the user manual. Visit the download section to get the latest version and subscribe to the mailing lists if you want to keep up with the project.
