Abstract:

When two bodies which have different velocities come into contact an impact occurs.  Within an impact analysis one is interested in the displacement of the bodies after impact and in the impact force as a function of time‘t ‘in one-dimension.  The wave propagation due to material nonlinearity and hysteresis is studied after impact. The objective of this paper is to present a numerical study of propagating pulsed and harmonic waves in nonlinear media using a Finite difference scheme.  This study focuses on longitudinal, one-dimensional wave propagation.
