Grahic Jump Location
Clattering sequence for a rigid rod with uniformly distributed mass (from Goyal et al. 7)
Grahic Jump Location
Numerically calculated response of the impact end in a vertical impact (a) velocity history for a 200 mm bar; (b) displacement history of bars of different lengths. (contact time equals the elapsed time until the displacement first becomes positive).
