Ray Expansions in Impact Interaction Problems
The impact interaction problems are those connected with the shock interactions of bodies subjected to the contact law.
The problems connected with the analysis of the shock interaction of thin bodies (rods, beams, plates, and shells) with other bodies have widespread application in various fields of science and technology. The physical phenomena involved in the impact event include structural responses, contact effects, and wave propagation. These problems are topical not only from the point of view of fundamental research in applied mechanics but also with respect to their applications. Because these problems belong to the problems of dynamic contact interaction, their solution is connected with severe mathematical and calculation difficulties. To overcome this impediment, a rich variety of approaches and methods have been suggested, and the overview of current...
