Horizontal impact of a sphere half immersed in a liquid of finite depth

We consider the problem of bottom influence during horizontal hydrodynamic impact of a spherical solid body of diameter 2a which is half submerged in a liquid layer of finite depth. The sphere is subjected to the action of a shock pulse, as a result of which it acquires an initial translational velocity u directed along the x-axis.
The influence of the spherical bottom on the sphere impact phenomenon was first studied by Zhukovskii . Vertical impact in a layer of finite thickness was considered in ; horizontal impact in a halfspace was examined in .
