Materials in Sports Equipment, Second Edition provides a detailed review on the design and performance of materials in sports apparel, equipment and surfaces in a broad range of sporting applications. Chapters cover materials modeling, non-destructive testing, design issues for sports apparel, skull and mouth protection, and new chapters on artificial sport surfaces, anthropometric design customization, and 3D printing in sports equipment. In addition, the book covers sports-specific design and material choices in a range of key sports, from baseball, rowing, and archery, to ice hockey, snowboarding, and fishing.

Users will find a valuable resource that explicitly links materials, engineering and design principles directly to sports applications, thus making it an essential resource to materials scientists, engineers, sports equipment designers and sports manufacturers developing products in this evolving field.



  • Provides both updated and new chapters on recent developments in the design and performance of advanced materials in a number of sports applications
  • Discusses varying aspects, such as the modeling of materials behavior and non-destructive testing
  • Analyzes the aerodynamic properties of materials and the design of sports apparel and smart materials
  • Explores new topics on athletic equipment, such as 3D printing and anthropometric design customization and on artificial sports surfaces
