This paper presents a method to determine material constants of a standard basketball shell together with the development of a virtual numerical model of a basketball. Material constants were used as the basis for the hyperelastic material model in the strain energy function (SEF). Material properties were determined experimentally by strength testing in uniaxial tensile tests. Additionally ...
Composite / Synthetic Leather – these basketballs are covered with artificial or synthetic leather material that has the feel of leather, as it has been designed that way, but much cheaper to produce and manufacture. Since it is synthetic, the material has a uniform feel which is why it does not need to be broken-in as it already has that soft feel even when new.
Windings. A layer of thread insulates the area between the outside ball cover and the inner bladder, adding a layer of protection that helps the ball retain its spherical shape. Nylon and polyester are typically used to create a symmetrical layer of winding over the bladder.
It’s just a recommendation and there is way more information about basketball sizes as every coach and sport doctors has unique positions. Production material. In many respects quality of a basketball, depends on from what material it is made. The most widespread materials which are used by production of basketballs are: 1. Rubber
A basketball is a spherical ball used in basketball games. Basketballs usually range in size from very small promotional items that are only a few inches in diameter to extra large balls nearly 2 feet in diameter used in training exercises. For example, a youth basketball could be 27 inches in circumference, while a National Collegiate Athletic Association men's ball would be a maximum of 30 inches and an NCAA women's ball would be a maximum of 29 inches. The standard for a basketball in the Nat
The composition of a basketball consists of synthetic rubber or leather. The inside consist of a bladder that holds the air in the middle. The bladder is made of butyl rubber. The carcass of a basketball consists of threads of nylon and polyester. The decals are pre printed and put on the ball. Synthetic rubber- is an artificial elastomer
(also known as MD) as a basketball shoe’s mid-bottom The characteristic of the material is its light-weight, good elasticity, good shock performance and easy cleaning. Further, the German Evonik Degussa group developed nylon-12 compound, which were mainly used in the production of high-grade sports shoes, making basketball
These are including material properties, mass, pressure, etc. These characteristics so far have been well defined by many researchers to get the most efficient performance from a ball.
