This Technical Note presents the results on the analysis and design of recoil mechanisms. This note deals with the approximation of fluid flow in a recoil system. The M102 Howitzer, XM37 Recoil Mechanism, is the model studied in this investigation. The M102 Howitzer is a lightweight, towed-typed, 105mm field artillery weapon suited for airborne and air assault operations. The XM37 Recoil Mechanism is a hydro-pneumatic dependant type of recoil mechanism.
