Trebuchets are pretty complex machines to get right! Having said that, this is a relatively basic design in comparison to many other modern designs (check out The Hurl wiki to see more http://thehurl.wikidot.com/trebuchet:trebuchets). Basically my aim for this was to build the most efficient trebuchet whilst sticking to a basic fixed axle frame. There are more efficient trebuchets out there, such as the MURLIN style, but in terms of ease of build, this is the closest you will get to a traditional trebuchet! Enjoy my videos? Want to see more?

Thanks to Pepperonin for supporting us on Patreon and making this video possible! Support us here: http://bit.ly/2qBHcvf Looking to lay siege to your neighbor's house? In this video, we'll teach you the basic design principles behind trebuchet construction. (This video is purely for educational purposes, please do not lay siege to anything) Siano's Paper on Trebuchet Mechanics: http://www.algobeautytreb.com/trebmath356.pdf The trebuchet is one of the most famous siege engines of all time, and designing and optimizing the powerful machine involves some tedious work. To understand how to optimize the design of a trebuchet, first we need to understand exactly what designs and principles make up one. A trebuchet in its most pure form involves a counterweight that falls completely along the vertical axis and a swing arm. Attached to the end of the swing arm is typically something like a sling to increase rotational velocity, but it isn’t essential to trebuchet design. Potential energy is stored in the lever mechanism as the large counterweight is lifted. Once dropped, the potential energy stored in the counterweight is transformed through linear motion into rotational kinetic energy for the projectile. It’s important to note that no compound motion or mechanism is involved in the trebuchet, rather it is one simple lever arm along with a counterweight. Once the mechanism is understood, the variables to controlling flight begin to appear. Being such a simple design, the only things you can vary are the lever arm length, the height, the counterweight weight, and where to position the fulcrum along the lever arm. While the constraints may seem limiting, optimizing all of these factors can produce a highly efficient machine.

This is video of a medieval siege engine called a trebuchet. It is not a catapult as many people don't know the difference between the two. This was the ultimate in siege warfare until the cannon was invented. Mine is 27 feet tall, the throwing arm is a willow oak tree, and the counterweight ranges from 1600-2000 pounds. The projectiles were watermelons, pony kegs, and 16 pound bowling balls. There are a couple clips in this video that I don't like. One is the second clip of the trebuchet (20seconds in.) It seems to show a projectile falling quickly and not going far, but we had tied a pink flamingo to the bowling ball and that is what you see falling so fast. Then there is a shot of the tree line (58 seconds in) from when we launched 16lbs of flour. You can barely make it out, but there is a giant puff of flour in-between the trees. The flour got ripped apart as it was released from the sling. Please feel free to comment and ask questions. To date, this is my best DIY project. I will build a larger version one day though.

Now you can match wits with da Vinci and put your coordination skills to the test with this build-it-yourself, working re-creation of his 15th Century catapult. With just an hour of assembly time, this bad boy can hurl a small clay ball over four meters, which comes in handy for ambushing pesky kid brothers or protecting cubicles from annoying coworkers. All pieces are pre-cut and made with natural, untreated wood from sustainable forests.

My friend's daughter, who is also one of my karate students got to build a trebuchet for a class catapult contest at her school, so I offered to help. This is how it turned out. We need to add some heavier counterweights and it will fly much farther. We got ideas for the design from this very helpful site: http://hila.webcentre.ca/projects/trebuchet/index.htm Our model is about 2.5 times the size of the desktop trebuchet on that site. I had a lot of fun building this, now I want to make a big one :-)

Westley Skogen builds and tests a 25 foot tall medieval style trebuchet. A trebuchet was first designed as a weapon of war, utilizing a sling release system as oppose to a catapults fixed arm. This particular trebuchet was featured in two local newspapers. The Marshall Independent and the Canby News.

This is a brief tutorial on trebuchet physics and useful tricks to make your trebuchet throw farther. Much of this isn't obvious if you're new to trebuchets and I overlooked many of the key energy transfer methods when I was starting out. Hopefully, this will help you optimize your trebuchet In this tutorial, I discuss how to use sling stalls and CW-arm stalls to your advantage. Having a basic understanding of both is necessary when designing an efficient trebuchet. For the purposes of the tutorial, I made a tabletop hanging counterweight trebuchet. This means that the tutorial will primarily focus on Hanging Counterweight trebuchets, but the concepts also apply to floating arm trebuchets (once you have the rail gaps worked out, a floating arm trebuchet is like a hanging counterweight trebuchet with greater fall distance and a vertical CW-arm stall point... hence, it is far more forgiving...) Also briefly mentioned is the multiple rotations trebuchet, where a link is included....

Shoots a golf ball 560 feet (my latest numbers are over 1200 feet - see 1200 foot+ golfball trebuchet). These are the first shots from a new 5 armed MURLIN (multi-radius linear nodes) trebuchet designed to shoot golf balls. Counterweights progress from 7.5 to 30 lb. Device is designed for 37.5 lb max. Max range currently measured at about 595 ft when using the maximum counterweight Plans are available through the tucsonpumpkintoss.org website, and you can reach me at email@example.com.

Follow this movie that documents NOVA's successful attempt to build and shoot a giant trebuchet, the most destructive war machine that ever laid siege to a medieval castle. The trebuchet was only the most frightening of the weapons early European warriors employed in siege warfare. They also relied on battering rams, siege towers, tunnels - anything to gain access to a castle. Defenders, meanwhile, had a few tricks of their own. Build your own virtual trebuchet and fire giant sandstone balls at a castle wall. You decide on the size of your projectiles, where to place your trebuchet, and other factors critical to success.

We've always wanted to go to the Punkin Chunkin event, but have never been able to. So I figured it would be fun to build a pumpkin catapult to play around with. It was just made for fun, so I didn't base my design on what would throw the pumpkin the farthest. I based my design on what was simplest to build. But I think my design worked fairly well!
