  author={V D Nguyen and K. C. Woo},
In this note, we describe dynamics of a new vibro-impact system, which is capable of generating large impact forces and consequently enhanced penetration rates. It consists of a solenoid, connected in series to an RLC circuit. A solid-state relay switches power supplied to the solenoid in accordance to a train of square waves supplied by a function generator. A metal bar, made from laminated sheets, oscillates within the solenoid, and is connected to the main structure by means of a spring… CONTINUE READING
