The Maximum Dissipation Principle in Rigid-Body Dynamics with Purely Inelastic Impacts

Abstract

Formulating a consistent theory for rigidbody dynamics with impacts is an intricate problem. Twenty years ago Stewart published the first consistent theory with purely inelastic impacts and an impulsive friction model analogous to Coulomb friction. In this paper we demonstrate that the consistent impact model can exhibit multiple solutions with a varying… (More)
