  • Publication number: 20190282866
    Abstract: A golf club head has a high COR, is durable, and has desirable acoustic qualities. The club head includes a body portion, a striking face and a crown forming a hollow cavity of at least 150 cc in volume. The body portion defines a front opening and an upper opening, and it includes a sole and a side section that extends rearward of the front opening. The striking plate is secured to the body portion, enclosing the front opening. While partially assembled, final weighting and/or other attachment of other members to the inner surface of the club head can be preformed, as desired. The crown is secured to the body portion, enclosing the upper opening. A surface veil may also be provided about a junction of the crown and body.

  • Publication number: 20180314786
    Abstract: A method of non-destructive checking of a component for aeronautics, the method including the following steps of acquiring a volume by tomographic imaging, of generating by computer simulation a surface corresponding to the component to be analyzed, of registering the volume and the surface by optimizing a similarity criterion defined by a function taking into account the correlation between normal vectors of a field of normal vectors of the surface displaced by transformation and a gradient of a gradient field of the volume, the optimization being performed as a function of transformations for determining the optimal transformation which maximizes the similarity criterion, of storing the optimal transformation, of establishing the correspondence between the surface and the volume obtained with the aid of the optimal transformation.
