hunting bow failure analysis

O’Donnell Consulting performed a failure analysis on a hunting bow incident that resulted in an injury.
The draw weight, like most hunting bows, is adjustable, and typically determined by hooking the bow string on a scale and drawing the bow. During this procedure, the bow had failed. Metallurgical and nondestructive testing was performed on various parts of the bow, and found no manufacturing defects.
