This project is an exploration into the feasibility of modeling the collision during a medieval joust. Information concerning the history and equipment of jousting is presented, along with an analysis of physical considerations of a joust. Artifacts from the Higgins Armory Museum are examined and used to create the basis for a rudimentary model. An exhaustive model is more within the scope of a MQP, where students have a greater initial understanding of the fundamentals of collisions and material stress.
