Impacts in Multi-Body-Systems (MBS) occur if the bodies come into contact among each other or among the environment. Many parameters influence how this contact process must be modelled to give a realistic prediction of the physical behaviour. If the impact is so short that the movement of the bodies during contact can be neglected and the magnitudes of the contact forces exceed those of all other forces in the system, one can describe the impact using a time-discrete impulse model. Otherwise it is necessary to use a continuous model of the impact.
