Abstract:

Hertzian contact-impact problems are solved which demonstrate the veracity of the numerical algorithm employed. The importance of the impact and release conditions is emphasized. A methodology is developed for nonlinear contactimpact problems. The formulation is applicable to motor vehicle accident research.
