I expect the assignment to be challenging but fun and I am excited to begin creating a powerful siege weapon. I think the main complications that will arise will be finding the correct dimensions and weight for the distance that we want to throw. The design phase will be the most difficult area of creating the mangonel since it involves using complex computer engineering websites to get the dimensions on point. Currently, my partner and I have been conducting extensive research into the mathematics involved and also researching the best components for what we're attempting to do. Our design is complete but we still need to work out dimensions, measurements and calculate weight.
