Vibro-impact systems

  • W. S. Gilbert
Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


We shall examine some aspects of impact theory for solids [60, 80, 103, 115], limiting the analysis to those points necessary to understand the processes occurring in vibro-impact systems, and generate mathematical models for them. We shall mainly be interested in the force changes and the kinematic characteristics of the motion of solids and their elements: particles, plane sections, etc.
