Elastodynamic Contact Problems

Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 250)


If the loads on an elastic body change in time, the resulting elastic displacements \(\varvec{u}(t)\) will imply local accelerations \(\ddot{\varvec{u}}(t)\), which should be taken into account in the equations of motion.
