3-D Pole Vault Simulation

Description

Design a 3-D computer simulation of the pole vault to specifically look at the interaction between the vaulter and the pole during the vault. Unlike other research, the pole is modeled with non-uniform stiffness over it's entire length. The computer simulation will faciliate studies of the effects of different initial conditions at takeoff such as velocity, trajectory and pole angle.
