A numerical solution to the problem of dynamic indentation of an elastic plate by a rigid punch

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A numerical procedure for the solution of the elastodynamic contact problem of a half-space with a rigid indenter developed previously is generalized here to solve the dynamic contact problem for an elastic plate. Both rigidly clamped and traction-free boundary conditions on the other surface of the plate are considered. The effects of the finite thickness of the plate and the type of boundary conditions on the resulting dynamic stresses at the impacted surface of the plate are exhibited in several situations.
