BOOMLAB - Sharing the Science of Boomerangs - Boomarology
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.
Georg Hennig of Bavaria took Hess's program and Gerhard Bertling's algorithm and put a nice interface to it.
Check out his page. http://www.hennigbuam.de/georg/boomerang_download.html
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.
You can use the link to download a zip file of Georg's work. Extract all the files and run wxBumms.exe (after a accepting security warnings). The Sim interface is German, but you can select English in Fenster-->Sprache wählen-->English.
Also there is a PDF is in the folder “Facharbeit.pdf"
Cheers and nice work Georg

This looks like a superb simulation. The document is in French and I am unable to translate it easily. Have a look for your self. Any help with a translation would be much appreciated

This was also sent to me by Jean-Michel Guimbard, but I don't know much about it. Any help aprrecited
