Abstract:

A method is presented for estimating the recoil force at the interface between the firers shoulder and his weapon. The method involves simultaneous second order differential equations, whose coefficients have been determined by empirical fits. An example is given, which shows how the initial pitch-up and the recoil forces of a rocket launcher can be estimated.
