Software for designing and simulating bows

VirtualBow is a free, open-source software tool for designing and simulating bows. It gives users an easy way to test and optimize their bow designs before actually building them. The software provides almost instant feedback about a bow's predicted performance by calculating things like the force/draw curve, limb deformation, stress distributions, arrow velocity and degree of efficiency.
