Abstract

In this study, a solution based on the biomimetic design approach to the recoil in the firearms that users are exposed to is proposed. In this context, main shock absorption principle of the woodpecker's head was investigated and used as a source of inspiration in the handle design of the Remington 870 model firearm by using the structural analogy method. Axial and total deformation, reaction force and stress values were assessed together by comparing the original pistol grip model currently used with the models designed using the biomimetic design approach, and suggestions were brought for grip scanning to minimize the recoil in firearms.
