Abstract [en]

Through the ages mankind has developed and tested a cascade of varying weapons of

war, large and small, and has has striven to push these creations to the limits of their

time. A grand example of this are the medieval siege engines that have changed shape

several times over the centuries. After all this time the eciency of these siege engines

will have reached their peek. . . right? In this study the eciency of several siege engines

will be evaluated and the possibility of improvement will be examined.

Abstract [sv]

Genom tiderna har manniskan testat och utvecklat en myriad olika stridsvapen, stora

som sma, och drivit dem till perfektion inom de ramar som funnits tillgangliga. Ett

praktexempel ar den medeltida kastmaskinen som underarhundradens lopp andrat form

era ganger. Efter all denna tid bor kastmaskinernas eektivitet och destruktiva formaga

natt sin pik. . . eller? I denna rapport kommer eektiviteten hos nagra olika klassiska

modeller undersokas och om det skulle ga att forbattra dem.
