Abstract : A mathematical model analyzes a compressible fluid soft recoil (CFSR) concept applied to a 155 mm howitzer. The model addresses the relationships between volume and pressures in a compressible fluid, the forces, deflections, and stresses in the walls of a cylinder which is designed to expand elastically, and the forces and velocities of the recoiling mass. The mathematical model is used with a computer to optimize sizes, pressures, and stresses of the recoil mechanism.
