Abstract

Education of engineers at Higher Technical Colleges is completed after five years with a final degree that requires the realization of a diploma thesis. In the presented paper the development of a recoil measurement device and first measurements are presented based on students work within diploma theses and on the study of teachers who supported the diploma theses within SciReAs, the scientific research association at the EUREGIO HTBLVA Ferlach. As the strength of recoil is an important property in security and weapon engineering, it is of huge interest of the Higher Technical College EUREGIO HTBLVA Ferlach to be able to perform and analyze these kind of measurements. Furthermore, it is planned to study the behavior of the human body on the occurring recoil when shooting a hunting rifle or a sports gun.
