DYNAMICS OF PSEUDO-RIGID BALL IMPACT ON RIGID FOUNDATION

Int. J. Nonl. Mech., 39, pp. 299-309, (2004)
This paper concerns the dynamics induced by the ideally elastic normal impact
of a linearly elastic pseudo-rigid sphere on a rigid, stationary foundation.
An impact map is derived and studied by numerical and analytical means.
Periodic, quasi-periodic, and chaotic response is observed
consistently with the symplectic nature of the map.
