Copper Model Swinging Counterweight Trebuchet
Description:The machine is generally associated with hurling boulders at a castle wall to bring it down, but trebuchets have also been used to throw Greek fire and wreak all kinds of havoc. Fixed Counterweight with Floating Frame The fixed counterweight trubuchet with a floating frame i. When attempting to breach enemy walls, it is important to use materials that will not shatter on impact; projectiles were sometimes brought from distant quarries to get the desired properties. It is thought that a small type of trebuchet may have been developed in China as early as BC. In fixed counterweights, the center of gravity of the falling mass travels along a curved path. The difficulties of coordinating the pull of many men together repeatedly and predictably makes counterweight trebuchets preferable for the larger machines, though they are more complicated to engineer. When the counterweight drops the sling and the missile it contains are dragged down the guiding trough, whipped up into the air, and swung in an arc above the trebuchet frame.
