A Study of the Hammer Impact

The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact effects of varied forms of a hammer on a nail of different material. To achieve the study purpose, the researcher integrated the computer-aided design software SoildWorks and finite element analysis software LS-DYNA to analyze some familiar hammer heads with varied shapes for striking nails.
After observing the results of simulation, the researcher compared efficiencies of the physical properties and the mechanical effects. In addition, the researcher simulated different materials and sizes of the nail stricken by a hammer. He found out the best slenderness ratio of the nail. The researcher hoped that his study could provide the other designers to produce more effective hammers and nails.
