Dr James Park from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering used the Monash wind tunnel to test aerodynamic drag and rotation of arrows and the likely wind drift for a given arrow as they move through the air.

Dr Park, who is also the coach of the Australian Olympic archery team, hopes the findings of his research will assist the team overcome any windy conditions the team might face at the historic Lords Cricket Ground where the Olympic competition is being held.
