Simulation of a Counterweight Trebuchet

Application ID: 55381

In this multibody dynamics model of a simple counterweight trebuchet, a parametric sweep is used to study throwing distance as function of the sling length.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
