Mathematical modeling and numerical simulations of javelin throw

A physical model of the human-javelin system has been developed together with a mathematical model of javelin flight including its transverse elastic vibrations. Three kinds of parametric identifications were distinguished: geometrical, mass and aerodynamic. Numerical calculations were made for different initial velocities and throwing angles. The results obtained have been presented graphically.
