English term or phrase:column loading
Ich weiss zwar im Grunde was gemeint ist, aber bin über den treffenden deutschen Ausdruck grad im Unklaren.
Es werden Schwinungsknoten erklärt, die es in einem Pfeil beim Bogensport gibt.
Es geht nun um die Reaktion des Pfeiles beim Lösen vom Bogen.
When a bowstring is loosed using a finger release, even the cleanest finger release does not cause the string to push into the arrow directly down the shaft of the arrow. Instead, the string slides off of the fingers/tab so that the rear end of the arrow is traveling forward and sideways simultaneously.
The first reaction of the arrow is to buckle. The reason for this is based on what engineers call “column loading.”
