Impact Loading of a Deformable Body

Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


Many engineering systems, especially impact and vibro-impact mechanisms, consist of a number of units contacted each other upon some surfaces, or between which small gaps arise from time to time. Numerical methods for wave simulation in complex deformable structures must take into account that repeated contacts and short-time rebounds can appear at arbitrary points of bodies and at different time instants.
