4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

Many of our favorite sports and pastimes involve throwing, kicking, hitting, or otherwise dealing with some form of projectile. The variety of shapes, sizes, materials and features provides designers with both challenges and opportunities as they strive to optimize athletic performance.

But, have you taken the time to consider the engineering aspects of these sports projectiles? This webinar is an interesting and real-life look at fluid dynamics and aerodynamic principles and how those concepts apply to the world of sports.

You’ll learn how the design of these projectiles has evolved over time and in response to demands of the various activities. Plus, you’ll see how athletes utilize the underlying scientific principles to try to gain advantages over their opponents.

You’ll find this webinar is a unique view of how the engineering world has partnered with the sporting world; and you’ll find yourself fascinated with the science of sport.
