Computer Simulations


Simulating the flight of a boomerang with a computer is a challenge for boomerologists.  


Aspiring boomerologists William and Jack check out their dad's BOOMLAB simulator instead of going to bed.  Jack is now a senior assistant boomerologist.

BOOMLAB - this is my effort details are here ...  It aims to let you create different boomerang shapes in a boomerang editor and see how they fly



Georg Hennig of Bavaria took Hess's program and Gerhard Bertling's algorithm and put a nice interface to it.  


Check out his page.

Boomsim was originally written by Gerhard Bertling of Germany and added to by John Mauro  and Jim Martellotti. It is a BASIC program compiled for a Classic Macintosh Computer.  Other work is also contributed my Martin Claussen.
